Hi there I just like to share my experience. I am an introvert, like people in small doses and small talk is hard work. The world screams for extroverts, big personalities and overlooks hidden gems. It is easy to feel anxious cos you feel there is no place for you. For many years fake it till you make it is me and it comes at a price, my mental health. Which probably explains why so many people are suffering from anxiety. It does not discriminate. I use the term closeted introvert to describe myself. If you are a closeted introvert, you are not alone....the outspoken salesman of the year sitting beside you may be one too. So how do I cope...know your break point and take a break...take a day off or even 2. Sleep in. On a long run, it's worth it. I remind myself constantly work is not my life..it's only part of. Easier said than done I know...I have my bad days and I mourn how I feel to the point I can grief no more and feel better...it's like coming out of a sauna...weird but true....I like end my post with ...be kind and love your introvert self.
