Quiet by Susan Cain “Solitude matters, & for some people, it’s the air they breathe.”💆🏿♂️
Being an introvert or extrovert is about embracing which light feels right with you, no matter what society says. For years, schools & society has forced being an extrovert on ppl, without realizing that without introverts being true to themselves, our world would not be this creative world we have today.
1st 🔑 “At school you might have been prodded to come “out of your shell”
Were you this kind of person or do you know someone who was? In school, sometimes we’re forced to partner up in teams of 5 & when there’s a student that’s not engaging in the group, the teacher observes her as shy/unusual, when really, this “shy” student just prefers to brainstorm 1 on 1 or brainstorm alone. Some of the wisest creators were thinkers, not speakers: Einstein, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, etc.
2nd 🔑 “Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to.”
Societies norms is that we should be out at the bar with a group of friends on weekends or other large groups like parties & such. Many introverts just prefer to be at home w/ their loved ones for the night or cuddled up w/ a book & a little wine for the night & there ain’t nothing wrong with that 🍷
3rd 🔑 “Everyone shines, given the right lighting.”
Some people find their shine under the spotlight in front of a crowd of thousands of people & others, it’s that one light in their room on their desk with a pen & a notepad. It’s all about finding the light that feels right with you & basking in it ✨
I recommend this book for all extroverts & introverts. We all need you to be YOU.
What’s 1 thing you like about being an extrovert/introvert?
