Happy Introvert Day

2 01 2008

Celebrate, celebrate…today is national Introvert Day!! I think I’m going to throw a party…NOT!

 In March 2003, I was liberated when I read  Jonathan Rauch’s article entitled “Caring for Your Introvert”  in The Atlantic Montly.  Finally, someone understood! The need for time alone every day, the craving for quiet conversations about feelings or ideas, the awkwardness of small talk at parties, the urge to scowl at pleasantries from well-intended people who are just trying to be nice…it all had a name AND it wasn’t an indication of something bad.

Then today, I found that article’s corollary on Yahoo! Happy Introvert Day to all you fellow introverts.
