A Proud Introvert

I am an introvert. And I love who I am. In my late teens and early twenties I wondered why I struggled to contribute in groups of people, and I didn't enjoy parties so much. What I did really value and succeed at though was establishing very strong social bonds in individual scenarios. I tried to change though, I tried to become more sociable like 'everyone else'. I could not though, it was seemingly impossible. Now in my late 20's I have come to understand that this is simply who I am, and although I may not be the centre of the room, I may not be in the spotlight, that is actually a good thing because I hate being in the spotlight. I find it embarassing. Ironically though I have a bit of a 'hero complex'. I want to help people, save the day, and I like to be recognised for it, though not by a big award in front of everyone, that 'key to the city' ceremony. Just a simple thank you, and to be appreciated.
