being an introvert in community

I am an introvert as well. I still know the need for a community, which I am yet looking for to live away from urban civilization in the sustainable ways that are important, as I see. It would be worthwhile for there to be others who are introverts as well in such a community I can find I can be with. And my love of making stories with my creativity can be something that might interest some others, who could value me being there.

I don't know how much of this sentiment resonates with me due to being an introvert, or being a sensitive sort dealing with far too much stress over different periods of my life.



I think it describes a level of shut down I've experienced where I've been unable to "hear" others. Just no capacity to take in what they want to say, plus a severely reduced or non-existent ability to learn new things.

I'm so, so grateful to be moving past a multi-year period of feeling like this and now being able to listen to others and have meaningful conversations again.

I guess we can learn others might be that way at some time in their life, it is part of what to know for accommodating others.
