Introduction The holiday season is in full swing, and for introverts, that means navigating through a series of social gatherings that can be overwhelming. While introverts may love their family and friends, they find big parties utterly exhausting. The constant noise, small talk, and crowded rooms can leave them dreaming of a quiet Christmas at home in their pajamas. If you're an introvert, you can probably relate to these thoughts that cross your mind at holiday parties.

Thoughts Introverts Have at Big Holiday Parties

1. Is it too late to cancel?

Saying yes to the big holiday get-together seemed like a good idea at the time, but now you're having second thoughts. You consider canceling, using the age-old excuse of being "sick." After all, your dog is waiting for you at home for a cozy Netflix night.

2. Sigh. I'm going.

a meme about feeling guilty about not going to the party

Even though you're tempted to skip the party, you can't bear the thought of letting your family down. The holidays come with a double-edged sword for introverts – they feel guilty for wanting to skip the party, even if it's better for their mental health.

3. I'll only go for a little while.

a meme that reads I came, I saw, I left early

You come up with a perfect compromise to maintain your sanity. You decide to make a brief appearance, say your hellos, and then make a swift exit. After all, you have other plans, like cozying up at home in your favorite spot.

4. I can do this, I can do this…

5. It's so loud!

6. Small talk, whyyyyyy…

Small talk has never been your thing. Celebrity gossip and superficial chatter about weekend plans bore you. You long for meaningful conversations or discussions about big ideas. Unfortunately, the party tends to veer towards shallow small talk.

7. This is getting awkward…

The small talk quickly becomes awkward. You struggle to find common ground or interesting topics to discuss. Awkward silences fill the air, making you feel even more uncomfortable.

8. There's so much going on that I'm zoning out.
