I have recently realized something about myself that I don't like very much. Instead of taking the initiative to make plans with friends, I tend to wait for them to do the asking.
It's not as though I don't enjoy myself when I'm with the various people I know. So why is it that I don't take the initiative? The end result is I seem to be staying home a lot more than I used to.
The same thing is true with email. I faithfully answer messages sent to me, but I'm usually the respondant, not the original author.
And with Blogging. Unless I am traveling, I am having a hard time coming up with things to write about. I haven't been good about responding to comments. And I seem to be reading other Blogs less and less. There was a time when I created a post and checked my entire Blogroll every day, actively commenting on much of what I read.
I wonder what's behind my slide into introversion? I hope it's just a passing phase because I liked being more socially active and more connected with the people in my life.
