Hey, there introvert! I’m so glad you stopped by! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about introverts and what makes them so awesome. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been told pretty much my whole life that I should try to be more extroverted. I’ve heard every misconception about introverts that there are. It’s time to ditch the introvert misconceptions! I’m sure you’re just as tired of hearing them as I am.
I believe that these misconceptions can really affect introverts in a negative way. Sure, a lot of times it’s easy to brush them off, but there are times where it gets a little tougher. Maybe you’re an introverted entrepreneur and you’ve been really struggling lately with some type of business endeavor. Along comes someone (probably a well-meaning friend or family member) and you start to talk through your frustrations. Sometimes all you need to do is vent, but your well-meaning friend or family member uses the opportunity to talk about the fact that you should be more outgoing. All this does is make you more frustrated and hinders your ability to move forward. It can end up making the whole situation worse.
Why am I creating the “Ditch the Introvert Misconceptions” series?
- This blog series is going to educate introverts and extroverts alike so that they can better understand introverts as a whole. Like I mentioned earlier, people have told me all of my life, that I need to change who I am. I’ve gotten to a point in my life where I finally understand that that is just not the case. By the end of it, I hope that it brings clarity that introverts can be pretty dang awesome just being introverts! You don’t need to be an extrovert to have success.
- Some of the misconceptions out there are just plain wrong! Sure, some of them may apply to some introverts (shy, doesn’t like public speaking, etc.), but not all. Some of them could even apply to some extroverts! Introverts are not all the same, just like extroverts are not all the same.
- For my introvert friends out there! It’s so important to move past the limitations of these misconceptions. You are capable of so much and you shouldn’t let silly little things hold you back. I hope that this series will help you start to embrace who you are as an introvert so that you can move forward to be the best that you can be. Plus, there’s going to be something extra special for any introverted entrepreneurs out there as well. Stay tuned!
- I love who I am and I want to encourage other introverts to do the same. You are powerful and have the ability to do whatever you want to do. You don’t need to be an extrovert to do so.
