On the Go: Respect rights of the introverts


It’s about time we change this message. We should tell the little and the big extroverts that it’s OK to be extroverts. We should tell the little and the big introverts that it’s OK to be introverts. We should tell all the littles and all the bigs that it’s OK to be themselves. Nobody’s wrong. What’s wrong is having a culture try to smush itself into a shoe two sizes too small. If we aren’t careful, our blisters will callous and our toes will curl. So next time, be flexible and remember the introverts.
