987. Introverts…This Is Going To Rock Your World

I’ve always had mixed emotions about the ‘introvert’ and ‘extrovert’ labels. I love being around my people, but I used to always feel the need to recharge after big social events. What I’ve discovered is that I was just an extreme people-pleaser who didn’t uphold my boundaries or manage my energy. In this episode, I share how I handle social situations now to make sure that I’m not leaving them feeling anxious and drained. 

If you identify as an introvert, DM me over on Instagram at @loriharder and let me know if this resonates with you! Plus, tell me how you’re going to challenge yourself at your next social event!
