    Being an introvert is not a problem. The way you see your self is the only thing that matters. Introverts are the people who are silent and quite yet so humble. They are not open to many people. They have only few lose friends. Than beimg in gatherings they find themselves comfortable by being alone. It never means that introverts are not social animals. They do engage in social activities. But to a certain point only. They are open only with few people but that is also to a certain level. Being introvert won't limit you by doing anything. But if you still feel like it does then you can try to be engage in more social activities or being open to people. But if it is not making you comfortable in any way then you should never force yourself.

    Best thing is to be who you are. Love yourself and understand yourself well. You should not let anything to doubt yourself. You will still be happy by being true to yourself.  Being introvert would never do any harm to yourself or to the life you are living. All the best !

    Changing your own personality is a very difficult task, although it is not impossible. Everyone has their own personality build-ups and function accordingly. If you feel you need to be more social and conversant, then go along with it and start interacting with people! It is best to go cold turkey and face your fears head on. The more you talk to people, the lesser fear you will feel while interacting with new people.

    However, if you feel that you are better off being an introvert and are okay with interacting limitedly, it is perfectly okay! It is not necessary to talk and interact, and there are people who are uncomfortable with it. You don’t have to change yourself to have people to accept you. Those who understand the dynamics of accepting difference people will accept you for who you are. Introversion may be limiting only if you wish to take up professions that require interaction, other than that – if you feel you are happy being with yourself and doing what you want, I personally think it is not limiting. Introversion is not limiting as long as it does not hard your mental health and well-being. It is harmful if you are bottling up and do not reach out to someone in times of need.

    People are categorized into two major categories, extrovert and introvert. These are two different personality traits which are totally opposite from each other. No one is good and no one is bad, these are some traits that an individual is born with and basic nature of human can not be changed, it can be altered though. Introversion is one side of the coin. In this, people love to spend time alone, does not like to socialize, often hesitate in talking to unknown person. This is the personality trait, there is nothing wrong in this. However, in modern times, it has become very important to make good contacts which help a lot in future. An introvert can also speak up by putting his hesitation down. 

    I am sharing one video which can help an introvert to socialize. 

    It is not bad or wrong to be introvert, it's just that, now everyone should know the art of interaction, believe me, this helps a lot.

    There's nothing wrong with being an introvert as long as it's not hindering you from performing well at work, academics or relationships/friendships.

    Introverts simply derive energy from solitary activities. Being an introvert doesn't mean you don't like being social or are rude or aloof. These are all misconceptions. It just means that you focus your attention inwards, towards yourself and don't like a lot of stimulation from the external environment. 

    However, along with accepting yourself for who you are, you need to remember that you can't stay in your comfort zone all the time. Step out of it once in a while - go to social gatherings, speak in public, express your views. These experiences will give you exposure to a new kind of setting. You might just end up enjoying it. 

    You may feel like the only person you need is yourself and to an extent, it may be true but you need to remember that not everyone is wired like you. So learn to accommodate your loved ones and those you hold near and dear. Make time for them and let them know that you value their presence in your life. Don't let your personal likes and dislikes come in the way of relationships that could be beneficial for both of you. 

    Hope this helped!

    Hi dear, I hope you are doing well. Being introvert is as normal as being extrovert. So, don't think that you are deviating from normal.There have some characteristics which differentiate extroverts from the introverts and I hope you also feel it.

    Introverts are less socialized, less talkative, inward, quiet, values depth of experience, shy etc. That's why many people misinterpret them as they have attitude or ego problem.

    But there are another factors, like they also have close friends, they don't share there feelings with everybody, but they do share with their close ones, they also love to hang out, but with their close ones etc.

     Now try to relate yourself with this conditions. If it matches, then you are not being too introvert. But if it is not matching, then it may be because you love your self company and you are not ready to mix with others.

     Every person should love himself/herself. But if it extends beyond a particular limit, it may be harmful for that person and for the persons arround him/her. A person can't live alone, because every person needs company to live. You also should find people whom you can trust and to whom you can share your feelings, with whom you can spend quality time. 

    Life is very short, and there are lots of things to explore in this life, and it is not possible to explore it all alone, so find friends, with whom you can discover your true self.

    All the best. I hope it is helpful! Stay happy and healthy!

     First understand that so long as you love yourself the way you are, you are on the path of self-growth.And now just go through this link , which may really help you understand what introverts are and what they really aren't:

    Well, if you can relate with most of these points, then let me tell you , you are not limiting yourself in any way.

    People can be broadly categorised as extroverts and introverts. Simply speaking, if you divert more energy on to others, you are an extrovert. If you invest more energy in your own self, you are an introvert. By being an introvert, you are involved more in knowing yourself and this is a sufficient indicator of your growth.

    Even then if you feel that you need to be more conversant and talking to others will make you feel good, well then go ahead. These are not fixed categories. You may be an introvert at some point of time, extrovert at other point of time.

    Introversion and Extroversion are equally good. It's just that the way they lead towards self realisation and growth are different.

      I hope you are doing great and enjoying life to the fullest. 

            If you are thinking that being an introvert is bad then I guess you are wrong . Popular leaders like Bill Gates, Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama are all introverts, although when we think of the word politician we tend to imagine a leader who is loud and extroverted but the opposite could be the best too. Isn't it? 

          Just like two sides of a coin , try thinking the other side , good about being an introvert .The advantages could be 

    1.  Introvert people are the most humble people around . 

    2.  When tempers are short, you are at a good position to calm things down. 

    3. Extroverts like to jabber alot , Introverts like to remain silent and quite , hence they become great listeners and listen patiently. 

    4.  Introverts don't like much to remain happy . They are happy enjoying their alone time at home and enjoy a good book. 

         Yes, it's good and important to socialize at times and express what you feel but there is nothing wrong or bad about being an introvert. 

      Enjoy your life ! Good luck!
