Lord, give me your eyes, I want to see the world, and to see me, as you do. Give me your words, words of wisdom and sweetness, so with them, I can touch people’s lives. I give you my whole, so you can teach me, correct me, make my step right, turn my stone heart into a flesh one. Do with me as you please. Let me be more like you want me to be, Father. Never let me be satisfyed with my relationship with you, make me want more everyday, let my heart hunger for your Word, make my spirit desire yours, and desire your presence everyday in my life, at every moment, at every time.
Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

I’m definitely an introvert, then. And that’s okay :)
