41 Reasons I'm Staying In: A Celebration of Introverts
41 Reasons I'm Staying In: A Celebration of Introverts by Hallie Heald
HBL Note: I am a textbook introvert. And I married into a family of extroverts (although my husband has some introvert tendencies which is probably why we work together.) My in-laws can spend every waking moment with one another, talking the entire time. Whereas I need to step away and recharge…spend some time not talking or not being “on.” Family vacations give me anxiety because I need to be sure I have my own room, with a door so that I can slip away and have quiet time. And fingers crossed no one comes an interrupts to ask me to do something or answer or a question or ask if I need anything. All you introverts out there can relate, right?
