An Introvert’s Insight

Years ago I found my all time favorite life tip.

A cold, hard surface is my best friend.
They are steady and oddly reassuring. Never fail at providing me with comfort and security.

A slab of marble, concrete wall, and my personal fave – a seemingly never ending tile floor.
Whenever I am in a negative environment that has the potential to break my heart from my rib cage, I go in search of my number one treasure chest.

A word of caution for those who find me in that state. Please be sure to tread lightly and give me some space.

As an introvert with a short fuse, I can be downright dangerous if I feel threaten in any way.

I will become hostile and horrifically honest when I am approached before I have calmed down properly.

My brain will sense danger and that my systems are still low. This in turn will trigger my mental emergency brakes. Causing my brain to activate its fail safe. Which shuts everything and everyone out to protect my fragile, yet beautiful mind.

  1. Until very recently I never defined myself in any sort of way. Tasha from Hitbelowthebelt blog put this very funny clip about introverts on one day and I just thought..damn…that is for the most part me! I was always labelled as shy but what in reality I am is an introvert. I can have a horrible temper which leads to much blustering on my part. It is never physical…I don’t punch the wall or anything like that, but I get mad and I have yet to find that treasure chest which helps ease the transition to calming. This was a great post. Thank you for sharing it.

    • I found out about me being an introvert through an anger mgmt class years ago. Nothing physical, but verbally….Sigh. I have gotten better thankfully. I just learned to try my best to eat well, exercise, and to talk about my feelings instead of allowing them to get bottled up. It’s one of the reasons that I started blogging. You’ll find your treasure chest – it takes time though, but it will happen. Thanks!

      • Its hard I know. Sounds like you recognize it, which is a huge first step. I’ve also learned not to bottle things up either. Sometimes they do and I realize I start not feeling so good and I come off as very moody. So I try to get them out. Better to deal with the consequences of that than the alternative. I’ll keep looking. And thank you!
