“The world isn’t Black or White. Be the color you want to be”
In my previous post, I promised that I would share with you my voyage. I won’t be sharing it in a linear way, I will give my inspiration the freedom to share what is in my heart today.
I was working on Feel Good Space’s facebook and as part of that, looking for strong, inspirational video’s. I came across this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0KYU2j0TM4
An inspirational video about how it is ok to be introvert, even though today’s world isn’t always as embracing towards the more quiet and timid. The ones that live in their own world. It’s ok, more than ok, it holds treasures of it’s own. Deep gems.
I consider myself to be an extrovert/introvert. Growing up, at school, I was always an introvert, and that made hard to make friends, so I ended up a lot of time on my own. quiet, polite, a great observer. Now, when I went to school, that was what they liked to see. Quiet, polite children who just got on with it and studied. In today’s world however, this is completely different. My little niece is a lot like me, she is very quiet, will always observe from a distance. This seems to worry teachers and parents. When it shouldn’t. Because that world of their own, creates so much power and knowledge. The power of observation and solitude leeds to diplomacy, vision, open mindedness and it’s where true passion comes from! It is how you discover who YOU really are!!! So please, let your children discover who they really are.
Don’t get me wrong, it is nice to have friends. Especially as a teenager, I recall those nights where I felt so utterly alone, no where to go, no one to call, and yes, I was lonely. But would I do it differently? no, it made me into who I am. and you know, I really do like me.
That introverted little girl was the source to why I am such a great interviewer, the source of my integrity and honesty. And because it is so deeply rooted, people feel that. They pick on it. And when you find your extroverted side (or force yourself to find it, because you are so passionate that you know that is the only way to reach your goals) – then you will shine and strike that balance between in and extrovert.
