Will she regret it if she doesn’t?
I’m an INFP going through high school. For the most part, I’m perfectly content hanging out with friends at Cafes, going to movies, chatting one-on-one, and doing other low key activities like that.
I’ve never been a fan of going to football games or school dances. They make me feel awkward and self conscious, and they drain my energy.
I had a recent conversation with my mom about the Homecoming dance, and she says she understands that I don’t want to go, but she’s worried that I will regret skipping out on it when I’m older.
I’m sure that I would have more enjoyment just hanging out with a few other friends rather than dancing with the whole school and dealing with strangers grinding on me, but I can’t help but feel anxious about this. Will I regret skipping Homecoming and other dances? Is it healthy for me to be a bit antisocial? Sometimes I feel like I take myself way too seriously and that I need to let loose and have fun, but at the same time… this kind of environment is not very comfortable for me.
I’d like your opinions or advice on this situation. A tiny issue like this can cause a lot of anxiety for a highly introspective INFP. 🙂
