Episode 1532: If You Don't Like Your Life, You Can Change It by Jenn Granneman of Introvert Dear on How To Take Control of Life

Jenn Granneman is the founder of Introvert, Dear and author of The Secret Lives of Introverts. She started Introvert, Dear in 2013 as her personal blog. She was living with an extroverted roommate, dating an extroverted guy, and working an extroverted job (teaching 4th grade). Jenn wanted to write about what it was like being an introvert living in an extrovert’s world. In true introvert form, she wrote her blog anonymously for almost two years. Jenn had no desire to be in the spotlight. And she had no idea her little blog would become this! Now, with the help of “quiet ones” around the world, she is on a mission: to let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are.

I spent many years an unhappy marriage, doing work that exhausted me and living in a city that depressed me.

anytime. I wasn't adapting saw it as a sign of weakness. If argues, work out everything internally, I would be fine, never cross. mind. If I could change the things in my life. Tat made me unhappy. I remember the first time simple revelation dawned on me, but it was some time in my mid twenties when I got divorced, moved and left a fanatical near COLT like church does left me with few friends the pastors told my former friends.

I learned a truth that will transform your life. If you let it if you dont, like your life, you can change it. Introvert are wired to reflect. Not do
by definition. Introvert are inward personalities are deeply brains are wired to slow down, reflect deeply and turn inward. Often Sika, learn and understand, rather than dive in Chatan. Do I like extroverts? His first instinct is to look outward when they have a problem to other people or two actions that can take. We tend to pause, reflect and puzzle things out in our private in her world and we're natural observers. We're likely the one standing on the edges of the group quietly listening or change right, chasing popularity and status like an extrovert put too much attention on us and we may get over stimulated often is easier for us to stay quiet than speak up after all, Polly been told our whole lives at our needs, as introvert aren't valid. The sheer active speaking up takes energy, especially when you have to verbal spar, with wages are strong, will personality, so we see
or pain. Along with our stress and unhappiness, we turn to what we think we can control, which is our inner world, but then overtime, life becomes movie. It becomes a story beyond our control, that's happening to us, but that other people make our decisions. We don't see ourselves as actors who shape the scenes, passive means. We never end up with the life we want. Whatever your facing, you can control it in some way. maybe you're not the position of needing to completely overhaul your life, maybe or simply tired, for not having a home. That makes you feel good feel lonely and need a new friend. Maybe you wish you hadn't, time to write whatever it is. You don't. About your life, you can take steps to change it.

Research shows that human,
beings in general are bad and knowing what will make them happy is called effective forecasting and we suck at it.
