Sometimes we have to be around a lot of people, for an extended time. “An extended time” can be defined as anywhere from an entire day – to over a week. Well, I suppose to an introvert, it could be most any amount of time. And while recharging may be different things to different people, I believe we all need to recharge at some time.
We need quiet. Not the earbuds in the ear, listening to Mozart or Chopin kind of quiet even. Just silence. I don’t always know where to find that, myself. I just know I have to find it. This recharges my ability to think creatively. Without that I can’t solve problems or come up with plans. When I go too long without it, my heart or my soul (not sure which) feels as if in pain. This is a motivator, but I should find my quiet before I feel pain.
So whether you are energized by being alone, or by being with a lot of people, come to the quiet occasionally. You will find your measure of peace there.
