1. They don’t keep in touch with friends as often as they should.

When they have a free weekend for a change, their first instinct isn’t to text someone to fill the void of silence. It is to enjoy that silence. They are comfortable being alone, which is why some weekends are spent by themselves. They don’t need anyone else around to feel happy. They are happy on their own.

2. They work extra long hours.

They actually like what they do for a living, and they want to be the best at it, which is why they put in so much effort. If they have to work weekends, or if they have to work twelve hour days, then they will do it with a smile on their face. To them, working is more than a way to make money. It’s a way for them to feel fulfilled.

3. They stress about every little thing.

They stress because they care. Because they want to create a successful life. That stress can be a burden at times, but it can also be a blessing, because it causes them to be prepared for anything. Every scenario runs through their head ahead of time, so in the moment, they always know what step to take next.  

4. They always want to have control.

They would rather be the ones driving. The ones planning. The ones in charge of a big project. They trust themselves more than they trust anyone else, because they know what they’re capable of doing. They know that they can handle anything that life throws at them.

5. They put themselves first.

Some people might consider them selfish, but really, they are just making the decisions that feel right for them. They aren’t going to accept a certain job because that’s what their parents want them to do. They aren’t going to get married in their twenties because that’s what society expects them to do. They are going to do what makes them the happiest.

6. They take a while to open up to people.

They are cautious when it comes to relationships, because they realize their worth. They know that they don’t deserve to have their time wasted and their hearts shattered. That is why they are going to move slowly when they develop feelings for someone. They are going to make sure this person is worth it before opening themselves up completely.

7. They are hard on themselves.

When they fail, they can spend months moping about it. But that is only because they know they could have done better. They know that they have it in them. And next time, they are going to prove it.

8. They put too much on their plate at once.

There is so much they want to accomplish in life. Their bucket list is a mile long. They don’t want to waste any of their precious time, so they fill their schedule with things to do. They always stay busy. They don’t know how to stop.

9. They don’t give a fuck about your opinion.

They love themselves and that is all that matters. They aren’t going to feel bad if you disagree with their life choices, because it’s really none of your business. Your opinion means nothing to them. They couldn’t care less about what you think of them, because at the end of the day, they fall asleep smiling. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
