FYI: How to Care for Ted and Christy

How to Care for IntrovertsI saw this via a friend on Facebook, and it is so entirely true of me (and Ted and Anders, I believe, I don’t know about Nora) that it’s worth saying. When introverts are struggling with stressful things in life, these rules doubly apply (see Rule 6, because life generally doesn’t respect these rules). Although I like them all,  I really have a thing for Rules 4, 5 and 7. Good rules. And we introverts also have to remember to respect these rules toward other introverts. I’m not trying to pick on anybody here.

And (Rule 10) I’m sure lucky to have found my one best friend who has similar interests and abilities. I hope Ted feels the same way.

And (Rule 11) I’m sure glad that I do have lots of other wonderful friends too. Because we still need all of the love and support that we can get in this world.

And for an appropriate end quote to illustrate just a bit more about me:

“Just look at these rules! So well laid out, so informative, so restricting. Everything that rules should be. Yay rules!”

    That’s great. I see a lot of Anders in those rules. Two, three, four, and nine resonate with me.
