I am a true introvert by default! But the funny thing about it is I don’t like to be alone!? I refer to work along. I prefer to grocery shop alone, I love a good cozy corner of the house where I can just have my me time with no interruptions. Although this sounds great it can actually be damaging socially. I believe this world was made to have us all socially involved to get certain things accomplished.
For example if I go shopping for a new outfit I need someone to give me a truthful opinion about how the outfit REALLY looks on me….. I love the way a friend of mine bakes her famous million dollar pound cake, I just cannot attempt to do the same. I have to ASK her HOW it’s done, TAKE A VISIT and watch how it’s made! As an introvert this can be DIFFICULT BUT can be DECIDED.
The struggle to keep myself happy all the time was draining and inconsiderate to anyone who tried to HELP ME. I reasoned with my feelings and emotions of “it’s better this way” when it was really “it’s bitter this way”.
A wise man wrote relationships are one of our greatest resources. How can we grow without having any resources that are designed to take us to the next level in life! Having a healthy balanced social life takes the pressure off of ALWAYS DOING LIFE ALONE. I challenge you introverts today to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! Call a friend, send a text, grab a coffee. GO DO SOMETHING SOCIALLY BALANCED that would help give you the confidence you need to move forward!
