Have you heard of the Quiet Revolution? It was started by an author who writes about being an introvert.
The Power Of Introverts
It seems we quiet ones are beginning to be revered and better understood, hurrah! It is time report cards for children don’t diminish a childs confidence by writing ‘Could speak up more in class‘ as if speaking is a requirement for being an intelligent human. This was what was on my report card regularly in junior school. I had all positive grades early on and it always ended with this statement. And well, as a child I focused on that statement and thought that there must be something wrong with me because I was shy and quiet Hmmmmph!!
I am going to keep this post short and quiet, with little input from me because quiet is needed today…
