AMBIVERT

Thanks for joining me!

I’m both; introvert and extrovert. I like people but I need to be alone. I’ll go out, vibe, and meet new people but it has an expiration, because I have to recharge. If I don’t find the valuable time I need to recharge I cannot be my highest self.”-Sylvester McNutt III

Growing up, I never imagined that there was anyone else that felt the same way I did. I didn’t understand why, one minute I loved people around me like family, friends and people I loved, and want nothing to do with them, the next minute. It took me stopping (or life forcing me to stop) and look at myself and try my best to understand just who I am. In the process, I realized a few things that I now don’t let defined me but have definitely decided that  I will do all I can to live my best life, by learning to live with what my highest power has given me, and taking it as a blessing rather than a curse. I am an empath, and ambivert, living with Bipolar 1 disorder. This is my progress, what I have learned and will learn along the way. I’m far from perfect but if this will help someone and help me meet people and hear stories of others that are like me, It will be all I ask for.

  1. Although I don’t have the same diagnosis, I can’t relate. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and although not the best diagnosis, it does allow you to start to work on yourself. The fact that I have answers as to why I feel the way I feel has helped me tremendously. I have accepted therapy and have been thankful to have found a great one. Blessing to you in your journey! 💛🙏🏽

      1. Thank you, likewise! The thing that people with chronic pain and mental illness all have in common is that we’re resilient! I just remind myself to breathe and take it one day at a time – no need to rush.
