Tired of Tumblr posts dedicated to the splendor of being an introvert? Comic relief is on the way. A hilarious new YouTube video sends up the sillier side of taking your introversion far too seriously. The video will have you giggling to yourself while you share a warm embrace with your laptop.

Akilah Hughes, who created the video, is herself a frequent blogger who identifies as both an introvert and an extrovert. She told the Daily Dot that she couldn’t believe how many “blogs glorif[y] agoraphobia, because they misunderstand that introversion is on a sliding spectrum of personality traits we all have.”

Don’t take it too seriously, folks. Pour yourself a cup of tea and hit play.

You can check out more of Hughes’ hilarious videos on her YouTube channel.
