I am an extreme introvert and I got it from my father. This side of me requires that I take ‘time-outs’ it does not matter where I am I need time to step away and just take a breather. I need time to recharge before I join the noisy world again. This has been a trick that worked for me for awhile now, I have found that if I don’t recharge I become very grumpy and you would not want to be anywhere near me.
At home my family understands this about me that sometimes I just need to be left alone and when I am ready I will join the family in whatever activity is planned. Work is a place that has been exhausting me lately. My job is of such a nature that I interact with so many people at one time that it is really draining. I know University didn’t prepare me for this at all, because at varsity I could decide who I wanted to interact with and for how long so I could control that. I have been yearning for a new job one I will have less interactions and less noise (if that is possible). However, now I am here, an introvert in a noisy world.
Fellow introverts, how do you deal with this? Please help a very exhausted girl out….
