Introversion, a social trait not a character flaw

I think it is very important to remember that introversion is a social trait and not a character flaw that needs to be overcome. 

I am an introvert. I cannot stand big crowds. I never speak first. My favorite time is alone time. 

I’ve had people tell me that I need to open up more and be more outgoing… but why? Why can’t I be reserved? What is wrong with not being a “Social butterfly?” 

I don’t have to be more open. I can stay to myself all I want. Who said I can’t?

Being introverted does not mean that I don’t have any social skills. It doesn’t mean I don’t like people. It doesn’t mean I’m mad. 

We have to stop trying integrate each other into our own lives and let others live how they please.
