Just had to put this out there whilst I’m still reeling from the physical shock of understanding the exact source of many of my insecurities…(and breathe!)
After my 2 new postings yesterday, I had a quick look to see if anyone had read them (ie: the stats) and blow me down with a feather, there were 2 new followers. (Thank you both, I have duly reciprocated.)
When I took a peek at who was following me, imagine my surprise when I came across the antitheses of who I imagined I was – yet when I read Shannon’s bio, I became totally enthralled by how similar we seemed to be. Her very interesting blog is: The Introvert Collective. (highly recommended too)
That’s because in reality, It seems I am an introvert! I touched upon it yesterday but thought perhaps it was just a small part of me. Nope! It describes who I have always been – covered up by who I thought I was or wanted to be – an extrovert!
Have you ever considered that your daily stresses and strains might be because you were trying to be something or someone else? Well I have. Parties really take it out of me. I can get really ill and agitated both before and after entertaining a whole bunch of people, as happened to me last December actually when I organised my Mum’s 80th birthday party – Rat Pack style!
You see, I’m also a perfectionist, so it just had to be spot-on (like my Dad’s 007 themed party 10 years ago).
Annual BBQ’s to commemorate our dear departed end in me being totally exhausted to the point of self-destruction. I kid you not!!!!!
So, having just come face to face with this new side of my personality, I’ll go away and digest it for a wee while. When I come back, my next post will most likely contain some more pointers about my key attributes and how I see these working to my advantage/disadvantage. You might be a little intrigued….I know I am! 🙂
See you on the flipside and as always, thanks for reading/following/generally being interested.
