I love this illustration by Martha Rich. I guess we’ve got to be okay with silence with each other though eh.
Only over the past year or so have I really come to embrace by (very) introverted self. I have learned to manage my energy in social situations (which I do enjoy a lot) and take what time i need to recharge. This has given me so much more energy for being social and to enjoy my friends. Quiet- The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain was a big influence- big ups to that book. Being who we are is so freeing.
