As an introvert, I have come to face the facts that I am really not meant to be as alone as my mind is telling me I need to be. I do need a lot of recharging after social situations, like a typical introvert, but just as a human I need those social situations.
Because my boyfriend and I don’t have may friends in New Hampshire, a lot of my social interactions were with him and my coworkers. But now I don’t really have my coworkers, so it’s just him which can be a little bit trying. I’ve been facetiming my friends and family more, which just goes to show me how little effort I had been putting in with them in the first place.
And then there’s my online conversations – I think most of you in my comment section identify as introverts. I’ve noticed you all coming out a little bit more to talk about how Coronavirus has affected you. No matter if you’re extrovert, introvert, or ambivert, I think we all welcome a little more conversation right now. More chances to be heard when we feel so alone and isolated.
Just know that my comments are always open, I’m always ready to have an internet conversation, and you’re not alone!
