If you’ve listened to the show for any length of time you might suspect that Brooke and Kel are somewhat introverted, (or possibly a whole lot introverted!) and in today’s episode they chat about what that means to them, how it impacted them growing up and the obstacles and benefits of being introverted as an adult.
They talk about the difference between being introverted and being shy, and why you can be one without the other, as well as coping strategies they both use when they find themselves in intense social situations. Brooke also wants to make something clear – she isn’t aloof! She simply has a life-long case of RBF.
Getting to know ourselves – our quirks, strengths, weaknesses and weirdnesses – is a key part of creating a more contented life, and both Brooke and Kel have done some hardcore exploring over the past few years. Understanding who they are and why they tick has helped to not only create that contented life of more being and less doing, but it’s also lead them to a greater sense of calm and self acceptance too. Which has little to do with being an introvert and more to do with spending time getting to know ourselves.
