  • Wanda Lopez - I love this topic. As an introvert I see myself seating in my car and re-thinking if I should go in or not, too. Or just pacing in my house back and forth thinking whether I should go or not. I’ve gotten better. I say to myself, “You’ve got this go in and have a good time”. It helps.
