My journey: Learning to accept my introverted personality

Growing up as an introvert in a society that isn’t very appreciative of quiet people wasn’t easy. Knowing that people didn’t accept or like me for who I was – and still am – was tough. Most people found my personality to be VERY odd, to say the least. Barely anyone understood me. I saw it. I heard it. People even told me that right to my face.

I think you can imagine that growing up like that wasn’t easy for me. Luckily, my family was, for the most part, very supportive, but my experience at school was different. There were actually were all my problems with being an introvert basically started. It was not until I turned 19 when things slowly changed for the better. All beginning with finally starting to accept myself for who I was through learning more and more about the introverted personality that I am. These things changed when I started to accept myself for the …
