Introversion has turned out to be a strength for me in the long run. I needed to know I had a safe haven and people supporting me somewhere, and it’s become a strength to be introverted.
The trouble is that we live in a world designed for extroverted personality types. As a result, in a very real sense, introverts are operating with a social handicap. But it’s not a debilitating one if we get the right support, and almost without fail the right support is the knowledge that people who understand us will support us.
