24 things I’ve learned in 24 years as an introvert

Today is my birthday!  And because I’m officially turning 24 today (everybody seems to think I’m a lot younger!), I wanted to take a moment to share with you 24 things I’ve learned in the last 24 years as an introverted young woman in this world. May this inspire you to never stop growing and take every chance you can get to make yourself happy during this life! 1. It’s okay to worry and overthink, but you can alter the direction of your thoughts! “What can I learn from this? What’s an alternative right now? Can I change my situation?” 99% of the time, focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel helps so much. 2.

Far away from the city, but also close enough that going to the city doesn’t take longer than an hour. (In case I need to be there for some reason.) After getting to know myself better and better over the past years and learning about my introversion and highly sensitive nature, I’m incredibly thankful that I don’t live in or too close to the city. And to be honest with you… the happier I become in my own skin, the more I actually crave to move away even more. Funny enough, it hasn’t always been this way! When I was a teenager, …

3 Things you don’t want to miss out on as an introvert

As I’m a huge introvert myself, I know too well how hard it can be to motivate yourself to leave your house or your room. If there is literally nothing outside of your home that you fancy to see or to experience, why should you want to leave it then? If you are like me, there always has to be a good reason to make you want to leave your house and I can tell you right now, that for me this doesn’t happen often. I will always rather choose to stay at home than going out if I can’t find a good point in doing it otherwise. Assuming you are an introvert yourself reading this right now, you’ll definitely know what I’m talking about! Especially if the room you’re spending the most of your time in is as fully equipped as mine, the reason for leaving it needs to be extra good! And still, here I am today naming you my top 3 favorite things that are all happening outside of your home and that …
