As a marketer, I constantly browse sites like National Day Calendar to develop marketing content themes. So imagine my surprise and delight when I, an introvert, learned that January 2nd is “World Introvert Day!”
World Introvert Day? What kind of wonderfulness is this?
It seemed like the perfect opportunity to write a short tribute to my fellow introverts. To you, I say:
- Keep being you, and don’t be embarrassed about who you are, as an introvert.
- Let your internally-processing self think thoughts of goodness toward yourself and others.
- Honor your need for saving energy and recharging by being quiet and alone.
- Don’t let extroverts make you feel bad for not wanting to spend every waking moment in an activity or conversation.
- It’s OK to build margins into your schedule. If you need two nights at home for every night out, do it.
