Being an introvert at school is about survival. Eventually you can escape and build a system that lets you be a real person. This short video is a young women’s story of survival until she could speak out is similar to my own experience.
Introverts have super powers – we do things, we don’t need to brag about them or feed off other people’s energy. Watching extroverted emotional vampire feeding off the energy of others is incomprehensible to me. I’m over here thinking deeper, doing more and being better than you probably know.
“Its when you believe that there is something wrong with you, the world becomes terrifying.”
“I didn’t know I was an introvert, I didn’t know I was one of the 15–20% born with the hyper-aware nervous system that made me easily overwhelmed by high level stimulation”
“Stories filled me with enough strength and hope to promise myself that someday I would be able to use my voice to give the silent voices a chance to be heard.”
