Hi, my name is Lyn and I am an introvert mum and NO it does not mean I am not normal.
All my life, I could remember my parents [and the rest of the family] expected me to be this ‘bubbly‘ kid. “You need to talk more … you need to be more outgoing …” they would say. Of course, they had all great intentions.
So all thru school and even in my twenties, I always had to put on a ‘front’. I didn’t want to be an introvert person. I wanted to be that loud, ‘look at me‘ girl that everyone loves.
