The Eighth and Final Square

with courage face the thing you fear so the pawn becomes the queen

I don’t know about other introverts, but this is how life works in my head.

When I’m in a room with people, I “feel” them in my head. Each person takes up space in my head. After a while, my head gets fuzzy and I just need space alone.

Even when going to bed, I can’t go to sleep until Scottie and Ari are both asleep, because when they are awake, my head isn’t clear. I can’t go to sleep until they are asleep and my head is clear and people-free. I can’t sleep around awake people because I’m aware of each of them.

This is why it can be so exhausting to be around people. I need periods of quiet alone time to clear my head. Even with Ari, it’s exhausting just to be around her all the time. Even an hour alone does wonders to my mental capacity and clarity.

Call it weird…but this is the way it works inside my introverted mind.
