Could it be that there are more introverts out there than we realise?
Giving myself permission to step back and be inside my own head more often has been a joy, and a relief. But I only did this when I was 40.
A long exhausting career up to that point had been full of extraversion with very little downtime. Is it any wonder I needed a break?
If we all believe that being fun, bubbly and outgoing is the way to be happy then it follows that many quieter types could be squeezing themselves into a suit that doesn’t fit.
How about banging the drum for more Quiet, more solitude and a little more pause for thought….?
