A “sweet” story, dedicated to all “intros…”
“For many years I lived feeling “wrong”, “forced” myself to be “social” at all times. I felt I needed peace, but did not think I deserved it, and thought that was egoistic, “wrong” and “unworthy”.
One day a friend proposed to do a test, I normally do not do these things, but on that day I did. The test was about performance, how and when one works best etc., a long and actually interesting and “serious” one.
At the end of course, the results: surprise, surprise, I was an INTROVERTED! I had always thought the opposite, but it never felt quite right.
What was I? What had I been?
I had never ever considered that an “explanation” could “help”, or that a definition, a name, a box, a label, could change anything at all!
I am not fond of “boxes”, but I did feel “released” somehow.
Some kind of “mistery” was dissolved, the “monster” was just that!
The “monster” was my pattern, and not me.
Since then, I could understand and accept myself a little more.
I am an introverted, I am true to myself , I may work on it, and change but .. I am alright! :)”
