As I was lying in bed for a very long time yesterday morning, I browsed through my Facebook feed and read this comment from one of my contacts:
“Introversion=selfishness. . .”
The post has since been deleted so I can’t quote for you exactly what it said. The essence of it was that the author of the post claimed that he received slack for putting himself out there and that he was “on to us” and “7 steps ahead” and blah blah blah and that introverts are selfish and worry more about what other people think of them than they should.
I had lots of thoughts in regard to this. It boiled down to the fact that I don’t think he even knows what it means to be an introvert.
I posted a short reply, but decided to not engage further. It was clear it was a waste of energy.
Have you had a similar experience? What would you have done?
