To what extent do you find yourself preoccupied with your own thoughts and challenged to share your inner world with others?
As an introvert, I absolutely cherish my alone time. I often find myself wanting to escape the external world that surrounds me, only to take refuge in the solace of my mind and the comfort that it provides me.
When I am alone with my thoughts, there are moments where I get lost; I am unable to bring clarity or peace to my reality. In these moments, it is especially hard for me to let others in and share pieces of my inner world. To offer myself and allow my soul to be vulnerable to the opinions and potential critics.
In the same breath, I will say that I am learning to embrace a vulnerable spirit, especially with those that are closest to me. I value my time alone, to clear my head and my heart. But I also know that in order for me to embody the woman that I imagine myself to be, Balance is key!
I must learn to trust and receive from others.
