Karma for the Introvert

karmaYour words and actions will influence what happens to you in the future. How (if at all) will you change your ways?

That’s the topic of the WordPress Daily Prompt, but it sounds like a good challenge for me to throw out to all the introverts of the world.

I do believe in karma, but in a good way.  I believe that since I’m putting out good vibes about and for introverts that I’m helping myself by attracting all you wonderful people into my life.  I’m enjoying getting to know all of you.  Talk about wonderful karma coming back to me!

Through my research that I bring to you, I also learn more and more about myself.  That brings an amazing sense of inner peace because so many questions are answered.

See, I have instant good karma coming back at me!  I love it.

My next challenge for me is to continue this effort.  There is so much more to be written about re-energizing yourself, managing your energy, dealing with social challenges and relationships.  After that I want to take this to the work place and start talking about how to be an “out of the closet” introvert at work so that your boss and co-workers can come to appreciate you more fully.  Let’s educate the extroverts and make our lives easier.

(A sidebar comment about managing our energy:  I was reading the reviews of Marti Laney’s excellent book, The Introvert Advantage, and one reviewer thought the whole “energy thing” was just new age bunkum, hogwash and mumbo jumbo.  Hhhmmm…. I can guess what side of the scale he was on.  Energy is a very real, very big deal to an introvert.)

So my question to you, dear friends, is how (if at all) will you change your ways?  Will you be out and (quietly) proud?  Will you educate those extroverts near and dear to you so they can understand you?  Will you continue to join this conversation and share your ideas and experiences with the rest of us?

  3. Karma is like a living organism in my view. With every exhalation of positive intention we get to fill our lungs with positive intention for our next breath.

    Enjoy your day!

  8. What about the energy of the extroverts though? They have energy needs as well, just like introverts do. It’s very easy to say that extroverts should understand introverts, but what about the other side of that?

  16. Everyone who knows me knows I need downtime and they’re cool with that. Those that aren’t, well they don’t stick around because friends need to understand how their friends work or the friendship will implode. I go out with extroverted friends whenever I have the energy because they need to spend time with their friends. It’s the way they’re wired. But they also need to understand that I have to say “nope, not gonna.” now and again too. Since becoming sick, I’ve had to say no to my extroverted friends more often than not, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. We try and find ways to spend time together that doesn’t wear me out. It’s all about communication.

    As for Karma, I’ve always believed that you get what you give, so it wouldn’t change my actions much at all if science proved it was a “thing”.

  19. I am an introvert and I have lived, loved & worked with the extroverts. A tried-and-true remedy for not losing my sanity is the time I spend alone – with no apologies. What I feel I need to work on is compassion. People just need to feel that someone else cares. I expected too much at times. I believe it is a good way to keep good karma flowing. i’m glad I bumped into your blog – it will be a fun ride.

  22. I believe in karma. I think karma is biting me in the ass right now, as a matter of fact. My first husband had asthma & he used it as an excuse to get out of doing anything in our marriage. I used to resent this incredibly & it caused a lot of problems between us. Now I am coping with a diagnosis of COPD which is lung disease & my second hubby is having to deal with me not being able to do a bunch of stuff. I wish I had been a little more understanding with my first husband – he was lazy but maybe sometimes it was his breathing holding him back. And I will continue to try to help my second hubby in the small ways I am able.

  23. This is a great post. It is right up my alley, as I am trying–so far in vain–to start up a new business and can’t even get one lousy client. I will look for the above-mentioned book. Take care…
