My name is Becca, and I’m an anxiously curious introvert.
What does this mean?
Well, a few things . . .
First and foremost, I’m an introvert.
I’m not antisocial.
I don’t dislike people and doing things.
But I do very much enjoy spending time by myself.
I have a healthy imagination and a rich inner world that can keep me entertained for hours on end.
I’m also very curious.
About pretty much anything and everything.
My interests are diverse, and I love learning about new things.
I have caught myself spending endless hours reading about and researching topics that I’d known nothing of the day before.
Sometimes my curiosity can get me into trouble, or lead me into situations that I struggle with.
Because I also have anxiety.
And I can become overwhelmed very suddenly.
Sometimes it’s like a flip that can be switched without my knowing.
What I’m learning about myself is that there are a lot of different things that make me who I am, such as having anxiety, being introverted, and being curious. I’m also highly sensitive, have obsessive compulsive disorder, am a middle child, a tad quirky, and a whole gambit of other things. These things can all be interesting on their own, but it’s how they all interact that really makes me tic.
And that’s what I’m here to share with you.
I’m learning about myself.
Learning about what inspires me, what scares me, what triggers me, and what makes me dance with joy.
Sometimes it’s overwhelming.
Other times it gets me giddy with glee.
But every time, there’s a lesson to learn and an opportunity to grow.
How does this all relate to you?
I’m not sure, you tell me.
Maybe you’re like me.
Maybe you have some of these traits too.
Maybe you’re looking for someone you can relate to.
Whatever your reason might be, I welcome you to join me on my journey toward being
