If you are in a workplace and you are an introvert, we are sure these things are going to touch your heart!
You arrive at the office looking forward to a quiet day at the computer…
Then the rest of your colleagues turn up and you realise it’s going to be a long morning.
You immediately regret not calling in sick.
What makes it worse, is your boss just called for a team meeting.
You pray that you’re not asked to give a presentation…
Because there’s nothing worse than everyone staring at you while you fumble for words.
When you’re finally allowed to get back to your computer, you feel an inexplicable happiness.
But then your co-worker decides to talk your ear off.
Your comfort-zone has never been so far out of reach.
As much as you try, small talk just doesn’t come naturally to you.
And it’s incredibly difficult keeping up a fake smile ALL day.
When break-time comes round, it’s a massive relief.
While everyone is chatting in the cafeteria, you’re happy getting some serious me-time.
But lunch is over before you know it, and the afternoon drags for an eternity!
You don’t understand why you’re the only one running out of energy.
You wish people would realize that you’re wearing earphones FOR A REASON.
And when you’re boss stands behind your desk, it feels like a deep invasion of your personal space.
Suddenly, you’re in dire need of caffeine! But asking everyone if they want coffee is too much interaction for one afternoon.
You’re still recovering from the time you had to answer the phone because you were the only one available.
Let’s face it, being a quiet person at work is difficult.
Especially when you’ve been in the same company for over a year and people still forget your name…
Or that you exist!
But none of that matters now, because its home time…
And you’ve never been so happy to be an introvert.
