    First of all, be kind to yourself. There are strengths with introversion as there are with any other personality trait. It might be helpful to examine what it means to be introverted, including how is it different from diagnoses like social anxiety or high sensitivity, so you can better understand what you should do next.

    1) There are many different definitions of what it means to be introverted. It has historically been defined as the opposite of extraversion. Recent research shows that that may not be the best definition… Check out Scott Barry Kaufman’s article for more information on all of the possible definitions What Kind of Introvert Are You? It can give you more context for what it might means= to be introverted (and I say might because it is not a trait that is truly well known!) Others have covered Susan Cain’s work, also excellent reading.

    2) If the thought of talking to people is completely paralyzing, you may want to consider talking to a therapist about anxiety. A good descriptions of the differences between introversion and anxiety is Is It Introversion or Social Anxiety?

    3) You may fall somewhere on the spectrum of high sensitivity, which exists independently of introversion/extraversion. I would recommend you pick up Dr. Elaine Aron’s website The Highly Sensitive Person. She has a number of book out as well, which do a great job of explaining the difference between high sensitivity, introversion, and other similar traits. For example, did you know someone could be an extrovert and also highly sensitive, and might look like an introvert to outsiders? I highly recommend her work.
