People often have a sense of excessive inferiority or superiority. In my case, it is a mixture of both. In both cases, arrival at this state (superior or inferior), among other things, takes off from a socioeconomic standpoint.
I’ve found that whether or not and how far one becomes successful is subject to a democratic election — your ideas compete alongside and against other similar and differing ones. I’ve also noticed that it’s not as if introverts don’t understand this logic, it’s that they’re scared of change.
Here’s how it works: introversion’s often just a coping mechanism where the introvert dials the SOS (Save Our Soul) and the brain replies with its SOS (Survival Over Society) because within themselves is the only place where they feel safe. While there, chances to really live pass by and the introvert affects nothing but is affected by almost everything else.
As a form of defence, they sometimes condemn the ways of others as “shallow”, “superficial” or “empty.”
Here’s some news, folks: Not all extroverts are shallow. If anything, they’re the ones who are truly wise. I’ve spent the past year gaining fresh perspective about life by associating with a few and I can tell you that staying at either extreme is very dangerous. The best thing to do is to find a happy medium between what you’re taught and what you’re just finding out but the middle is slippery.
You may fall a number of times, it’s normal in a slippery place. It’s OK to hibernate. Just remember, hibernation is meant only for come backs. Try again. Personally, I’m through with awaiting the perfect moment to do things or the perfect person before I can make or keep friends. Nothing is perfect. No one is.
