One Response to Self Care and the Introvert Jessica July 20, 2013 at 11:31 am Thanks for writing this. It is so true! I am an introverted mama, and have also felt like taking time for myself is selfish – like I should be able to tough it out. But it is crucial to me being a better mama and a sane person. Plus, as you’ve said, it’s important for my son to have time with his dad and the other people in his life without me. I think that introverted mamas often get lost in the mix. I certainly judge myself for not being interested in or have the energy for more than one or two activities a week. I look at the extroverted mamas around me who do at least one thing a day and believe that I need to hold myself to that standard – that there’s something wrong with me for needing more quiet and slow time. Thanks for this. I needed it!
