Caitlin Flynn wrote a piece over at bustle.com about her struggle to be “hyper-social” when she first moved to New York City after college. She’s since figured out that trying to be someone she’s not isn’t a healthy way to live her life.
It makes me wonder if we had learned about our intro/extro-version when we were younger how it may have affected our social lives through high school and college. Like many of you, I didn’t self-identify as an introvert until I was 29 years old. Oh, how much anxiety I could have avoided had I understood my temperament earlier in life!
