January 2nd is World Introvert Day. It’s an opportunity to celebrate our introversion and for people worldwide to better understand and appreciate us.
With all the ignorance out there about introversion, the thought of explaining our personality is daunting, to say the least. We live in an extrovert world and we can appear to be arrogant and/or strange to others.
We aren’t. We just work differently. Introverts want and need to be understood on a deeper level, especially by those we care about.
Today is the perfect day to speak up about our introverted personality in real life, with real words. The truth is that most famous scientists, philosophers, artists and thinkers are introverted. Introverts are deep thinkers and it can be very inspiring when we let people into our thoughts. It is quite a gift.
We do not realize the importance of the time we have to give ourselves. Researchers say that being alone is good for your mental health. To want to spend time alone is, in fact, a normal and necessary behaviour for a healthy day-to-day well-being.
We’re so elusive is that we often purposely go under the radar, choosing to stay quiet instead of shouting for attention.
