An introvert isn’t necessarily shy.
Although the two qualities often overlap in the same person.
I’m an introvert and used to be shy.
Now I’m a confident introvert.
I spend a lot of time doing solitary activities that help me relax and gain energy.
But when I’m out and about I have zero hesitation when I want to meet someone.
And there’s no need for me to ‘warm up’ socially.
I’ve embraced my introversion and turned it into a positive thing.
No, I’m not the life of the party, nor the guy that draws all the attention to himself.
But when when I enter a conversation with someone, I draw them in deeply.
I know my strengths and how to use them.
That gives me confidence.
