Quote of the day

In some ways, introverts are like sponges. We soak up what is happening around us. Because we are such good listeners and sensitive to the vibes of people around us, we are ultra-tuned in to the needs of others. Like anyone else, we want to be liked and appreciated, but because we are reserved and don’t draw a lot of attention to ourselves, we might have a tendency to offer ourselves up as sounding boards and to anticipate others’ needs and sublimate our own for the connections we crave. Or we might be ashamed of our introversion and try to quash it to meet the demands of people around us.
