In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert.
When you are pregnant or a new mother you often lack the desire to be so loud and can feel more aligned to being quiet and introspective.
Those who know you can find your “personality change” difficult to understand – and you may struggle with it too!
I love this TED talk praising the Power of Introverts and Susan Cain’s book “Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that wont stop talking”
Learning how to parent or best work with an introvert is a skill we could all benefit from.
