We’re living in crazy times. One in which our governments have told us to be introverts: Stay home, avoid people in public, and no matter what, NO PARTIES.
As an introvert, I’m finding a strange comfort in social distancing. Sometimes I sigh with relief after looking at my calendar and seeing no obligations… for weeks.
On another level, I’m heartbroken for the people getting sick or losing their jobs. And don’t even get me started on the anxiety I feel about my own situation — it’s almost constant. All this to say, you can feel more than one way about something.
So, to capture the conflicting ways introverts feel right now, I present to you the best tweets I could find on this strange rollercoaster we’re all strapped into together.
