Skyler to Books
can i buy clomid at cvs Welcome to images from Skyler senior session. We went to an amazing location, one that I have loved using for the past couple of years, but I don’t use often. I’m going to move on to a different topic other than senior sessions today. I shall call this little post “What I Read.”
What I Read
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but lately I’ve been reading a lot of books. Like a lot of books. I’m trying to post books on Instagram, and share my thoughts in stories.
What I read that became my favorite book over the last several months was “Sorry I Was Late, I Didn’t Want To Come.” There’s so much in this book that personally resonated with me. It’s not very often that I feel like a book was written about me. (Even though I didn’t do the little assignment that she did, I could see myself doing the assignment with the exact same outcome.)
What I read about was being an introvert. The author of the book is a self-proclaimed shy introvert. I am the exact same way. It’s difficult for me to be in public around other people. It takes so much of my energy, that I need a day or two to recover from a public outing. I need to wrap myself up in a blanket and stay in bed for an entire day after being in public.
My Energy Revelation
So often I feel like other people have more energy than I do. I seem tired all the time. Maybe I need to revalue that. I seem tired. In fact, I am not tired. I am recollecting my energy. It takes an enormous amount of energy to be around other people. All the energy I had stored up gets spent so quickly on other people. I need time to bank more. And I need time to give myself energy. Only a true introvert will understand this paragraph and what it really means. I don’t have less energy than other people. I just have to spend my energy differently.
The Opposite of Introvert Is:
One of the reasons why this book resonated so well with me, was what I read the opposite book the week before. The opposite book is called #imomsohard. This book was written by two very outgoing extroverted women. They talked about their mom gang and all of the goofy things that they do with their friends. I couldn’t connect with that book at all, in fact I’m surprised I finished it. I actually got stressed out while reading it, thinking why don’t I have as many friends as they do? Why don’t I drink wine out in public every night like they do? Why would I rather be at home in a bathrobe then creating friendships? None of it sounded appealing to me.
I Needed This Book
So this book was the antithesis of the previous book; and I needed it. I needed someone to tell me that it’s okay that I’m quiet and it’s okay that I am shy. I don’t need to go out and become an extroverted person just to please somebody else. It’s okay that I’m introverted. But it’s not okay to not have friends. I like that this book drove home friendships are core. While making friends as a shy introvert is difficult, it’s not impossible. It’s about hanging on to the friendships that you do have, and being open to new friendships in whichever form they arrive.
I don’t often read books more than once, but this book is already in my pile to read again.
