I know that I have social anxiety, but I'm also quite introverted. It's such an effort for me to communicate with other people. I find it to be exhausting and such a drag to socialize. I watch other people interacting and I always notice how excited they are to talk and get to know others. How do they have so much social energy and enthusiasm? I always hear about how extroverts get energized through social interaction while introverts need more time alone to sort of recharge. This is so true for me, but I hate it! So answer me this...can an introvert become an extrovert?
