How to Live with an Introvert

People are different in many ways. They have different perceptions of the world and can express themselves  through different ways.

Introverts, extroverts, those who had experienced emotional trauma as well as those who have health problems may face difficulties in communicating with other people. However, it will be highly unethical for a person to neglect these members of society upon these grounds.

Introverts are phlegmatic. They seem calm and balanced human beings at first sight but avoid expressing their feelings and emotions. You will notice them sad for no big reason; they usually are in a depressed mood and constantly feel sorry for themselves. All these signs are melancholic, but despite such a sorry state, they never share their feelings with anyone. They try to stay at home and avoid going to functions, parties and meeting with people on daily basis.
