The Quiet Rise of Introverts is my story. It’s about learning to know and accept your introverted nature and how to move through life without losing energy and fighting emotions. It is not about making an introvert into an extrovert. It’s about learning how to be sensitive and real while in loving relationships.
I grew up with a beautiful extroverted sister who was my nemesis for much of my childhood. We did not support each other. We were in conflict most of the time. The subsequent wounds from that relationship lasted decades for both of us and still rear their ugly heads occasionally.
As someone who has went through divorce and is now raising three teenagers, I am familiar with the trenches of insecurity and conflict. I work every day to rise up and create relationships with greater security, responsiveness and trust.
Through group therapy, psychological and neuroscientific research and supportive relationships, I learned how to build a stronger me and healthier relationships. My hope is that “The Quiet Rise of Introverts: 8 Practices for Living and Loving in a Noisy World” does the same for you.
