As an introvert, I still feel like the odd one out in a world designed for extroverts. Here are four things I wish they understood about me.
While attending a yoga and meditation retreat, I experienced silence in a whole new way.
As much as I crave connection and intimacy, I’m typically most comfortable when I’m by myself.
Yikes. I’m so awkward. Where’d my words go? Me, small talk, not good. Is it time to go home yet?
Both can take awhile to form a bond. But once someone has made us feel seen, they level up to VIP in our world.
Although the world tells me I should feel empowered by my body, the truth is, as an introvert, I’ve never really been all that comfortable in my own skin.
After many years of overwrought self-analysis and a drawn out misunderstanding of my own needs, I now wear my self-awarded badge of introversion with honor.
