A loving relationship can be an oasis in uncertain times, but nurturing it requires attention, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and gratitude.

Great post! One of the ways that I've dealt with the challenges of being an introverted entrepreneur is through partnerships. I frequently collaborate with someone else in my field who has complementary skills, but who is more extroverted. We recognize (and respect) each other's strengths. I'm better at writing proposals; he is better at presenting proposals. As a team, I think we have a lot to offer to our clients.
I also like what Beth says about "respecting our energetic needs." I am very much aware of what I can and can't handle. If I'm going to be on the road with a packed schedule of meetings, I try to make sure I have some time to myself at the end of the day to de-stress.
