The holiday season, defined by the sudden shift in cheer, bright lights, parties, and crowds, so many things introverts try to avoid. Our friend, Jonhzelle Anderson, shares tips and tricks for surviving the holidays.
Welcome to Muted Mouthful! My name is Tiara (she/they). I am a true introvert and socially awkward being trying to carve out a safe space for myself (and hopefully others).

I thought it would be nice to share my experience as an introvert with social anxiety would help differentiate the two.
