The way I see life as an introvert is like this, at times I can be just as social as most people. However, most of the time I am simply enjoying resolving life’s opportunities in my head. Said differently, living as an introvert.
When people think they know me they would swear I am an extrovert. They are mistaken. Newly admitted to a group, I am usually quiet and very thoughtful. I will open up with time. I put this blog post under “Stigma” because sometimes it feels like being an introvert has some negative label or assessment. Much like AD/HD or ADD has a stigma. These are somehow misconstrued as mental health weaknesses.
I beg to differ. Once people know me they really like what I bring to the relationship, community or group.
Today an article on Huffington Post sparked my sharing. The article is about highly successful introverts. I bet a high number of them also have the markings or traits of AD/HD.
I entrust you with the opportunity to get to know me, I know I look forward to the same.
