Introversion is ultimately about self-expression. This may seem contradictory if you think of self-expression as being solely about verbal self-expression. However, introverts express themselves in many ways that don’t require the spoken word. The introvert lifestyle is about embracing our capacity to spend time alone. It’s also about creating quiet spaces where we can design, invent, cook, paint, sew, write, read, think or meditate. It’s these ways in which introverts truly express themselves.
The introvert lifestyle is about adopting a way of living that honours, and never apologises for, our particular need for space and quiet.
When we’re quietly stimulating our hearts and minds through our interests, we find a state of well-being. This can be at the expense of social interaction. For introverts, the priority is to maintain a state of rest or balance. Too much social interaction can upset this balance. As a result, we find it more difficult to engage and contribute. Put simply, an introvert will prefer a meaningful conversation over a glass of wine over going to a loud party or networking event.
The introvert lifestyle is also about expressing our personalities through style and design. Our personal spaces and our style should be a reflection of our tastes, values, and loves. There’s nothing better than coming home to a space that truly reflects who you are.
