introvert but not shut out?
Or rather, are you able to look at your actions, your problems, your vices and shortcomings, and understand their origin? Their purpose?
Do you always need a second opinion?
What would you do if you were alone?
...not that you ever should be. But. While echoing Donald Miller's conviction that "we are not wired to be alone," I also mean to wonder, concerning dependence, how much is too much. At what point does companionship hamper our ability to know ourselves?
By this I speak less of restricting time spent with or time invested in others than I do of harping upon the need for an underlying and unrelenting sense of self. The time it takes to find yourself also depends. The rub is that it's losable and, based on outside influence, always in danger. I've found one that I mean to hold on to. Sometimes I worry that it strongly affects the way I handle others' pleas for input.
This is the reason we all must learn to stand alone. Perhaps the only time we choose to be will exist in the late hours before sleep, or during the fitness walks around the neighborhood. But needing others to judge your decisions before you can for yourself is ultimately detrimental.
This said, I don't mean to judge how any person spends their time.
Only to judge any person on the self-determined Path to Self that chooses never to walk it alone.
