How to Express Your Feelings as an Introvert

3 min

Introverts keep a lot inside.

As a thinker, you naturally think about a lot of things.

And sometimes we feel the need to share those things with someone.

But it can be difficult as an introvert.

And when you bottle up those feelings, it can affect your physical and mental health.

Anxiety, depression, overthinking, mood swings. You know what I talking about.

So, today I will share with you 3 Powerful Tools that can help you express your true feelings.

They’ll help you overcome hesitation and will make you more confident in who you are as a person.

Let’s dive right in.

1) Stick with your character 

When Joe Rogan is hosting a podcast, he’s not just Joe; he has also chosen to play the character of a talk show host in his mind.

What he says and how he acts on the podcast is an extension of that character.

We have the choice to pick our own characters.

Scientific research and experiments have proven that the mind and body are one.

The mind follows the body, and the body follows the mind.

That’s why knowledge of body language is so powerful.

In an experiment, two groups of salespeople were given the same sales script.

One group was asked to make the call while sitting straight and professionally, like they were sitting face-to-face with the customer.

And the other group was asked to sit as casually and laid back as they wanted to.

The first group closed 70% more sales than the second group.

And when scientists analysed their calls, the first group’s choice of words, tone, intonation, and objection handling was way more attractive and persuasive than the second group.

Your body takes the shape of your mind, and the mind takes shape of your body.

Your choice of character in your mind will naturally align your body language, your words, your vibe, and your energy with that character.

And as Shakespeare once said,

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.” 

Who do you want to be?

Casanova, a genius entrepreneur, a famous artist.

All you have to do is pick the right character that suits your needs.

I teach this step-by-step in detail (how to find your character) in my course Awakening.

Stick with that character in your mind, and the body will do the rest.


2) Write it down

In our heads, thoughts fly around like flashes of lightning in the sky.

Especially when you’re an introvert, it’s a lightning storm in there.

Neuroscientists say an average person has about 20,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. (I’m sure it’s more for introverts.)

And to mentally articulate one particular thought into coherent sentences is difficult.

That’s why we may go blank or feel choked when we are about to express our feelings.

So if you want to persuade the other person and get a positive response from them, you have to be very clear about what you want to say.

All the greatest speeches, movie dialogues, and stage or screen performances started on paper.

These orators, actors, and leaders knew exactly what kind of response they wanted from the listener.

They first wrote it down on paper.

And then they practiced it to perfection.

Don’t just blabber out anything that comes to your mind; give a grand performance.

Prepare, practice, and deliver.

Trust me, they’ll be hypnotised.

And once you’ve repeated it enough times, you’ll not need to write it down anymore.

It will become your second nature.


3) Know when to stop 

What will happen if an actor continues to act even after the play is over?

He’ll lose his effect on the audience. They’ll see him as a joke.

Sometimes our feelings are not reciprocated because we don’t know when to stop.

Knowing when to stop is as important as expressing it.

Silence is the most powerful tool of persuasion if you know when to use it.

Express what you want, and then… be silent.

Don’t overexplain yourself.

Don’t go on giving reasons for why you said what you said or why you feel what you feel.

Give the other person space and time to draw their own conclusions.

When you’ve expressed your feelings and gone silent, it subconsciously conveys to the other person that what you’ve expressed is valuable.

Silence is what keeps the power in your hands.

So when you feel it in you gut that you should stop, stop.



Expressing your feelings is easy.

What holds your back is a lack of clarity about what to say and how to say it.

Introverts can read people like a book.

Use that skill to prepare yourself according to the situation & people you want to express yourself to.

Choose the right character.

Choose the right words

Choose when to talk and when to stop.

Trust me, they will pay attention like you’re the most important person in the world.


Stay blessed,
