All the growing up years, I wasn’t a party animal. Was never the one surrounded by people, always. Ironically, I was mostly found on stage. I liked to be in public space. Do my jig and eventually roll back into my zone. Both, the excess and lack of public space bothered me. It actually fatigued me mentally.
As I grew up, gained some insights. I declared myself as introvert. This was more of an attempt to show “self realization” than denial. Once I realized that it worked, I made it a point to bring it on in any conversation. (Its always better to blame yourself than being blamed by others. And it works!) 🙂
An important thing to understand here is introvert and shy are two completely different things. I was definitely not shy. Today, we propagate collaboration and team work in almost every sphere of life. Be it schools, colleges or workplaces. While it is great to work in a team, but not always. We need to realize that each one of us also needs time off to open their own suitcases. Get back to their own zones.
I got hold of this video by Susan. And this has been nothing short of Cathartic. As she explained, I felt that someone was watching me over all these years. Go on and savor it!
And hereon, feel positive about being an Introvert 🙂
