Introverts, no one is looking at you, no one cares. Once you realize this, it’s very freeing.
If you walk into a room and people look up and stare, it’s only because the eye is attracted to bright, shiny, objects, and you happen to be that at that moment. That’s it and nothing more.
The world is not examining you on a constant basis, people are just trying in their own way to get through their day.
Once you are able to take the focus off yourself, you’ll realize that the cortisol shooting through your system is a false alarm, and just let it wash over you.
Find yourself in a conversation?, try focusing on making the other person comfortable. Become the person that puts other people at ease. Your calm energy will help someone else who might be struggling to calm down as well.
Realize some people are very damaged, and it’s not you, they bring lots of baggage that they haven’t worked out into every interaction. You’ll learn to recognize these people and realize it’s not you that’s making things uncomfortable.
