Can I get a shout out from my fellow introverts?
I love being an introvert. I love getting energy from being alone. I love leaving parties a bit earlier than others because my home is waiting for me. I love having close relationships with just a few people at a time. I love listening. I love resting. I also love socializing!
The thing is, sometimes too much socializing can make me grumpy. My lovely husband has quickly learned that when I am overreacting and being a major grumpypants, its best to just leave me alone until I choose to venture out of my room.
With that said, I had so many lovely interactions with new and old friends this week! I heard about new jobs, met new babies, connected with two friends from highschool, caught up with my new brothers and sisters, and watched my younger sister in a cello recital.
So yes, sometimes living as an anxious introvert can have its stresses, but it's always worth the needed alone time to connect with the fabulous people in my life.
Can anyone relate?
