I am an introvert.
While I enjoy fellowship with friends and family, I enjoy being alone. Sometimes, actually, I get annoyed with people if they try to talk to me in my introverted mood. I scowl inwardly if they ask me to do them a favor that requires more time than I had planned out. I hover by the wall, peacefully observing my Church brothers and sisters talk about their week. I’m happy this way. I don’t mind being alone and quiet.
Some might interpret this as loneliness. Why doesn’t she talk to people? Is she scared? Does she have any friends?
I’m alone, but I am not lonely.
The Spirit indwells my soul, filling me with His graces. My quiet, still demeanor reflects a quiet, still heart.
Sometimes I am scared to be quiet. I feel it is my Christian duty to be an extrovert. And while fellowship and communication and love through conversations is definitely important and something I take part in, it is also good to be alone.
Because sometimes, God teaches us His glory, His grace, His majesty, His sovereignty within a few minutes of stillness. Of quiet. Of alone time with Him.
So I am alone, but never lonely.
