6 Things Every Extrovert Secretly Has To Deal With

This is very true for me as these are struggles that I have to deal with. They have always had struggles that introverts have but never extroverts. I wish some of the people who know me will read this know how to better understand me.

Over the past few years I’ve noticed a growing number of articles exclaiming, “How To Take Care of An Introvert” or “10 Things Everyone Should Understand About Introverts” and while I have no real problem with introverts and introversion, my issue is with the fact that people of the internet seem to have romanticized introversion in a way that turns any possible social impediments a person might have into desirable quirky traits. Not only this, but extroverts are suddenly the bad guys for not understanding introverts or mistreating introverts, etc, etc.

As a self-proclaimed extrovert, I’m pretty sick and tired of people assuming that introverts are the only people who have got it hard. Really, seriously? Are we really going to play this game? Now you look here, mister. Extroverts may not seem as delicate or may not seem as complex and diverse, but extroverts have a whole different…

Yes, of course a business owner should have the right to refuse service to gay people

This might make a few upset but this goes along with my personal beliefs. I am reblogging this as it is a major issue these last few weeks.

The Matt Walsh Blog

gay bill

We critics of modern society tend to run into a problem very similar to the one you encounter when you go to a bar with 27 different beers on tap.

Sometimes, we just don’t know where to begin.

That’s how I feel when I read about the progressives working themselves into a lather over that religious freedom bill in Arizona. The legislation simply solidifies a business owner’s right to act according to his or her religious beliefs (I say “further solidifies” because the First Amendment already covers this ground pretty thoroughly). “News” outlets like CNN, engaging in blatant editorializing (surprise!), refer to it as “the anti-gay bill,” because part of religious freedom is the right to not participate in activities which you find mortally sinful.

It’s not that business owners want to “refuse service” to gays simply because they’re gay; it’s that some business owners — particularly people who work in the wedding industry…

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echos are truly endless”

Mother Teresa said these words and a thought of mine strikes me each time I hear them, Am I speaking kind words? This is not something that I like to thing about mainly because I know I don’t succeed at it most of the time. I think about the people that say really kind things to me and of course you (most of the time) give a compliment back to them and thank them. The words that they have said to me are remembered by me for quite a long time and have an effect to my day. But yet everyday, I can get caught up in my own thoughts and not say something to someone that needs to be thanked or give a boost to their day. I think that if we all began to speak kind words to everyone, not just the people we agree with, then we’ll be in a better mood, community and hopefully future. 

This is the statement that I am making here for myself to intentionally find myself speaking kind words to others and to try to not slander anyone as this is not helpful but harmful to others. That if I am going to call myself a kind and compassionate person, that I be conscious of what I am saying and the effect that it has on others.

As an aspiring Proverbs 31 woman, I have found verses that talk about kindness and the words effects on others.

Proverbs 31:26- She opens her mouth in wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

Proverbs 16:24 – Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones

 

“You can make plans but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. Proverbs 19:21”

So today I have been sitting at work thinking about the next four semesters as I want to graduate in the Spring time so a teaching job will be easier to transition to. I am sitting there writing all the classes I am taking for the next four semesters and 2 summers. GH comes to me and says “why are you worrying about this? You have time.” I replied that I simply needed to have my classes planned out so that I could control my graduation date and my education. He laughed and walked off and it got me to think a bit harder about what I was doing. I had basically decided that I wasn’t going to allow God’s plan for me to happen because MY plan had to. It took a bit for me to really understand that I could plan all I wanted and that it might work but God’s plan for my life and education was going to trump all of my plans. I now have a better thought to the plans that I have for my life. It’s not the planning that is seen as wrong but the lack of understanding that God has wayyyy more in store for me than I could ever think of. I can’t wait for my next two years of schooling to be finished but I have to also realize that God wants to be living for Him here and now not focusing on living for Him in the future. The only I can do is plan but remember God is in control of all things and that my plans, however awesome and perfect I think they might be, won’t live up to the plans that He has for me.
