Can you think of your introversion as one of your superpowers? Say it with me – I have introvert power. In a world where extroverts are in the majority, introverts are generally treated like the black sheep of the family or the dreaded second cousin who stinks and no one wants to hang out with.
All activities, events, jobs, schools, and societal rules are geared towards extroverts. Making us as introverts feel like we are just a burden, and an unwanted Cinderella-like stepsister.
I believe the real transformation in the life of an introvert comes when they are able to accept their introversion as the most beautiful and powerful part of themselves. It takes a lot of time and effort, a lot of work, reflection, and self-love, in order to get here, but once you get here, you are going to be able to transform not only yourself, but the entire universe that you live in.
The truth is that we need both kinds of people in this world in order for the world to function perfectly. Even if the world is a bit skewed towards extroverts right now, it doesn’t mean that extroverts are the best ones of the bunch, or that introverts are the best of the bunch. Both parties are equally capable of both good and bad. Both parties are necessary for the world to function in a balanced manner.
Can you imagine if there were only introverts in this world? Everyone would spend all of their time at home, and nothing social would ever get done. It would be a surreal place to live in, to be certain.
Anytime, I give advice to any of my introverted friends, or viewers on my YouTube channel, I tell them the same thing – realize your introvert power.(more…)
