Introversion is a gift


"Introverts are offered keys to private gardens full of riches. To possess such a key is to tumble like Alice down her rabbit hole. She didn't choose to go to Wonderland, but she made of it an adventure that was fresh and fantastic and very much her own." ―Susan Cain

I'm an introvert, and I think it's ok to be introvert. At first, I thought it was not good to be an introvert because the "world's standard" expects you to be more extroverted.

I started learning more about introversion. I read a lot of books about introverts. I was really amazed when I realized that there are a lot of hidden powerful strengths in introverts. I never realized how great it is to be an introvert because I always focused on what an introvert doesn't have but an extrovert has. Now I start seeing it differently because now I can see what an introvert has but an extrovert doesn't. I thought being an introvert made me weird, but it makes me unique.

You can be extrovert. You can be introvert. Whoever you are, be grateful for who you are. Know yourself, your values, and what God has gifted to you. I have strengths. I have weaknesses. So do you. Bring out the best of you, and don't get intimidated by the weaknesses in you. Everyone has, but the best people don't focus on what they don't have.
