The second incarnation of my blog
I is for introverted
Call in shy, call it lacking confidence, but that’s definately something that I have had to address over the years. I don’t know if there are any reasons: being the 3rd son? being in the closet for so long? happy in my own company? none of the above?
I have worked to overcome being an introverted soul and have achieved this to a certain level, though I am still uncomforable speaking on the telephone (for no obvious reason) and am not keen on making small talk, especially to strangers.
We are all a bundle of contrictions of course, as I can now “happily” speak in front of a large group and I know many people would rather cut off their big toe than to speak in front of a group of 30 people for 2 hours.
