“I was struggling with my daughter (16 at the time) and our constant fighting. You said something to me that changed my life! You were speaking about your own situation and you said to me “my child could not handle my emotions”. This was a HUGE “lightbulb moment” for me and it forever changed the way I dealt with my emotions when I was around my daughter!

I am happy to say that things have never been better between my soon to be 18 year old daughter and myself! I honestly never thought we would…

During one of the harder times in my life I found Brenda’s website
and reached out to her. To say the least it has been one of the best
decisions I have made. Being an extrovert I never quite understood
what it meant to romantically involved with an introvert. Brenda does
an incredible job listening, giving in the moment feedback, and helped
me understand the how an introvert functions. She helped explain to me
that I am introspective extrovert, and this gave something to identify
with and allowed me t…

I have been dating an introverted man who I am very in love with for almost 2 years.  Reading your posts have helped me to be more supportive and understanding to him especially during the times when he needs space.  I just wanted to thank you for your weekly posts and let you know how helpful they are for someone who is in a relationship with an introvert.

That courage and dedication you so generously share with the world, has inspired me to push myself a little harder, persevere at each task a little longer, dig a little bit deeper to where the answers just “feel” right to both my humanity AND my spirit. Your insights have reinforced my direction and given me additional tools that help me clear my path. I’m wired into my creativity as never before and the new music is pouring out of me faster than I can record and produce it; this is the Un…

For the first time in my life I could truly explain, through your words the way in which I experience life and myself. Brenda… It all fell into place. I had found myself and had such a moment of clarity. It felt like such a big weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Finally I felt like it was ok to be me. I was not the only one. I had found people and a little space where I fit in. … I was at work and crying on the inside. Emotions ran wild inside me. I was ecstatic, sad, confused, motivated, i…

This is me. This is me from the day I was born. For so long I felt misunderstood and rejected, even by the people closest to me, because they could never understand my need for solitude, and I had no idea how to explain it to them. Even now that I know more about Introversion and have a more informed understanding of my hard-wired need for solitude, it’s still very difficult sometimes to help my loved ones understand this profound craving for time and space all to myself. This is one of the best…

Thank you for all the words. You’ve created the magic drug I’ve been looking for all my life. Your blog has transformed my life, and I feel like I am on the brink of a most satisfying fulfilling journey…You’ve made me see everything in a new light. I now feel calmer, able to care better for my toddler, less hateful of people around, and hopeful for my future. I am not so afraid for our marriage anymore. — Shilpa CB

I think I want to print out your articles and hand them out as a sort of relationship waiver form. “You want to be my friend?….You are interesting in going out? Here read this first. Sign here to acknowledge that you have read and understand the enclosed material. Thank you.” Seriously. I think it would work. — Guerin Moorman

BRENDA: thank you SO much! Your advice is exactly what I need to do. I am amazed how much you “get” me after only exchanging a few messages!… Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ve helped me more than a year of therapy sessions! – Megan on space2live

Relationships Can Energize Introverts: Brenda’s Podcast Interview with Andy Mort

Andy Mort

 

 

Brenda Knowles

 

Hi Everyone,

I’m experimenting with different mediums in 2018. I’ve done podcast interviews (where I am the interviewee) for a while, but I hope to do more in the future. Here’s the link to the newest interview with Andy Mort.

I also am daring to move into the video realm. Look for my wordy self and the messages I love to share:

 

How relationships shape and save us,

How personal awareness and integrity are vital,

How to manage anxiety,

How going deep into work gives us profound satisfaction, etc. 

 

in video format soon.

Don’t worry. I’ll also continue writing posts. I don’t think I could stop doing that if I wanted to. 🙂

Right now, I want to share my latest podcast interview with Andy Mort, The Gentle Rebel of AndyMort.com. Andy and I have known each other for years now. We started our introversion and highly sensitive focused websites around the same time. He does so much for the creative, sensitive and introverted populations. I know I’ve learned a lot from him. He is also a talented musician. I encourage you to check out and subscribe to his work on his website and youtube channels.

In the interview with Andy, we talk about my book, The Quiet Rise of Introverts and how introverts not only get energy from solitude and continuous deep work but also from secure and loving relationships. Yes! Even introverts can gain energy from interactions and relating.

I’m proud of this interview. Andy does an incredible job of making his guests feel at ease and getting the best stories and sharing out of us. I think you’ll find our conversation refreshing and helpful. Enjoy!

Listen to the podcast here: Relationships Can Energize and Soothe Us: Podcast Interview with Andy Mort. I’m told there will be a video/visual version of our chat as well. Look for that too!

 

Warmest wishes,
