I, like many introverts, can feel lost as more and more value is placed on the number of connections we make rather than their quality. I often find myself in situations where I don’t fit in and where louder people get a greater share of the focus. I am regularly seen as ‘the quiet one’ as if somehow that is a bad thing, when in fact, I think it’s a pretty good thing.
If you can relate to this, then you and I have something in common.
What else might we have in common? Well, here is a bit more about me and the things I love in life:
- family and friends
- learning new things
- stationery (I LOVE collecting pens and notebooks!)
- a warm cosy blanket
- working in HR
- exploring my creative side
- taking photographs
- 80s pop music
- making lists! 😉
As part of my love of learning new things, I have recently started a project to embrace my quiet side. I want to understand what brings me a sense of belonging and when I feel most ‘myself’. I am on a journey to learn more about the introvert personality, how that helps us and the conditions that enable me and others like me to thrive.
This blog is about that journey.
