As an extrovert, I get energized by being on-the-g0, interacting with people, and making connections. As an extrovert, I come to life when I am surrounded by my loved ones. But as an extrovert, I often neglect to take time alone to process and rest.
Coming off a conference, weekend house guests, and a half marathon, I feel full and blessed. But being human, I also feel…well…exhausted and a little overwhelmed.
And I am wondering what REALLY will replenish my soul.
Do I continue to surround myself with invigorating people and activities? Or do I risk loneliness by dwelling in solitude?
These are the challenges of balancing life as an extrovert.
Anyone else struggle with finding the right balance as an extrovert? Do introverts face an opposite problem?
PS – Hopefully people will do the trick since solitude is going to have to wait a few weeks as I am headed out of town tomorrow for another conference and on then to Birmingham for a weekend adventure.
