Gratitude

It’s so overwhelmingly wonderful to read all the comments and see the reposts of 19 STRUGGLES OF HAVING AN OUTGOING PERSONALITY BUT ACTUALLY BEING INTROVERTED.  It is such a blessing to know there are so many of us in the world, and that we’re self-aware enough to recognize it and not let it derail our efforts at life and living.  There was only one negative comment in the bunch, a misled person who stated that the dichotomy between extro- and introversion meant the person was really bipolar.  I don’t even entertain such ridiculousness, for such comments are so obviously from a person who is (a) experiencing bipolar disorder themselves, or (b) are attempting to besmirch the qualities of introversion by claiming it’s a mental illness.  Not so.  If any of your experiences are similar to mine, you’ve been through therapy and more therapy, and keep emerging with a clean bill of mental health.  So the problem isn’t with us, it’s with a world that seems to try hard to convert us and fails to understand the true nature of the “innie/outie” spectrum.  

Thank you so much for all your wonderful insight and for sharing of yourself to strangers…a daunting prospect, to be sure.  

Peace and Love,

Christian

  1. A friend shared the original blog with me and I was astounded at how spot on it was. For a while I have been calling myself a “socially functioning introvert” as though it was some sort of a lower level of a condition. 🙂 Thank you for helping me realize there are many more people like me out there and number #13 was absolute genius!
