Recharge in solitude
Whenever I have to participate in a long meeting, and have to listen to many people and have to speak more than I would like to, I get very tired. Today is no difference. After almost seven hours of meeting with a large group of people, I’m drained.
Prolonged interaction is exhausting. I can do one on one. When there are too many people talking back and forth, that tires me. Too much to process.
The more I talk, the worse I feel about myself. It’s not the work itself that makes me down. I believe what we do is a good and worthwhile. After a rest in solitude I’m fine and to get back to it. I just feel stupid when talking. Some people like being at the forefront. Not me. Introverts recharge when they are by themselves. I much prefer to work quietly in the background.
