What Introverts Can Teach Us – It’s Pretty Amazing
by Rick Riddle
To me, life has been all about interacting and relationship-building and being around other people as much as possible. Every interaction and relationship, I believe, is a spiritual growth opportunity.
I didn’t “get” introverts. To me, they were really missing out on a lot of life experiences, and I felt sorry for them – shy, not able to “reach out,” living in their own small worlds. What soul growth was occurring within them was difficult for me to see. Until I decided to date one, that is.
There was a stunningly beautiful woman at work who was definitely an introvert. She was a “computer nerd,” spending her days in a rather isolated environment and rarely interacting with the rest of us – not attending happy hours or other social events, etc. I found myself fascinated with her, though she was certainly not “my type.” In fact, I came to think of her as cold and unapproachable and certainly someone who would be boring. Ultimately, I decided to ask her out just out of curiosity. After the third try, she agreed to have dinner with me.
