Introversion in church Hello everyone. Hope you're having a good Friday. I wanted to see if anyone can give me any input on something I've been struggling with. I noticed I have a lot of trouble "connecting" with people or making friends. I actually don't have a need to be around people all the time, on the contrary, I fully enjoy my time alone, being with people for too long wears me out and even makes me a little anxious. I know for sure I'm not the "loud" type of person who is the center of attention. I came to the U.S. when I was 12 and my English isn't that bad but sometimes I don't know what people are discussing, and they're very loud, witty and talk very fast so even if I know what's going on I can't get a word in unless someone asks me directly. I have very few friends that I can be myself with, we easily share problems, discussions, jokes, etc. but when it comes to socializing with anyone else I become toungue-tied, I'm not witty, articulate or funny, and even when I try, I still feel self-conscious. I notice so many of the people in my church become friends so fast, they go out on road trips, concerts, coffee...I'm not called to join them, which doesn't offend me, but it just makes me wonder what is wrong with me. I was recently asked to lead a small group by someone who knows me well, but I've been very nervous about it, I've been praying to God to show me how to lead it because I'm afraid that my lack of social skills are going to affect in a negative way. Does anyone else have introversion problems or such a hard time socializing? How would I know if it's normal or not? I do want to serve in church but I don't want to pretend I'm someone I'm not. Any input will be highly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!
