What can introverts teach people about being alone?

What can introverts teach people about being alone? Nothing, thanks. We’re fine over here quietly minding our own business. Reading books. Drinking tea. Enjoying our own company. Socialising with friends and then going home to recharge our batteries afterwards. Leading rich inner lives. Alone is just the circumstance of being by yourself. Loneliness is not liking it. Let’s not lead extroverts to think that we have something valuable to teach them. Don’t encourage them. They’re likely to come round and visit so that they can ask us all about it. *looks innocent*
