PSA: I am an Introvert

Most people think that because I work in sales and I attend blog events regularly, I like going out and socializing. While it’s true that my work requires me to meet people on a regular basis and I do enjoy going to events, I really am an introvert in real life and need to exert a huge amount of effort just to be pleasant, gregarious, and mentally present.

We introverts do have a social life though with a handpicked set of really close and relevant friends, and we are okay with staying home on most days (yes, really).
