I feel my personality has done a 180 since my teenage years.

Or maybe I was just trying to be someone I wasn’t.

I grew up in a culture that believed extraversion was unquestionably the better personality trait.

And this has cost me a lot of happiness.

Being extraverted is neither better nor worse than introversion, and both shine for different reasons.

You have every reason to love how you are.
