I've noticed an ebb and flow in my life. Generally in about ten year periods.
The book Passages by Gail Sheehy talks about the various phases a person goes through and the influencing factors.
"No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer
Introversion by itself isn't bad at all. In some ways, it's great. There are things it might be associated with that are...unhealthy...like social anxiety, insecurity, low self-esteem, etc. But introversion itself, imo, can foster humbleness, contemplation, depth, and self-awareness. Celebrate that shit!
Well said and agreed. Not a damn thing wrong with introversion unless it manifests in negative ways, like said in the quote.
