Introvert? Me!

Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 7.59.34 PM   If ever there were ever a truer statement!  I always tell people that I am an introvert.  I remember watching this Ted Talk and being gobsmacked with the revelation that I was was an INTROVERT!  For years I never knew where I fit in, as I wasn't shy, I could speak freely about my feelings, and I could stand up for what I believed in.  I had a big mouth and I could express myself but I felt like I wanted to crawl into my shell when faced with a group of people in a social situation.  Now I have no reservations about getting up in front of a huge crowd and speaking but put me at a cocktail party where I don't know anyone and you will find me in the kitchen asking what I can do to help out.   So for me, hearing this talk opened up my world.  I remember calling my best friend of 40 yrs and telling her ... "Guess what, I have had an epiphany,  I am an introvert!"  Her response ... "Duh!" She knew what I didn't.  I have always needed to go inside myself to re- energize - still do.  I recharge by looking inside.  So for me, this statement hits home in a big way.Share: Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail
