If you haven't read it, I would encourage you to read Passion for Jesus by Mike Bickle. GREAT book

Thanks for the recommend. I'm a hit or miss reader... sometimes I can whip thru a book, other times I cannot concentrate on reading to save my life (mild case of ADD I guess -haha). What really opened my eyes and helped me a lot was Rich Mullens story called Ragamuffin. Half way in that movie had me bawling like a baby. The way his dad treated him were very similar to my dad. Only difference is, I grew up with a dad who was very angry, yelling and cussing all the time, fighting with my mom something fierce. I said I'd never treat my wife or kids that way, and so far I've lived up to it.

I don't know when (or really how) I became an introvert.  I haven't weighed in on this thread earlier because I wasn't sure what to say.

Most people who only know me from the message boards (or only know me superficially) would most likely think I am a rather out-going person....but I'm really not.  Like most of us I am insecure (but act like I'm not).  I care about what my friends think of me, even though I could care less what anyone else thinks of me.  I really get along with most people in intimate settings (smaller groups of people or one-on-one type settings), but I cannot stand the behavior of most people in large groups.  I tend to be loyal to my friends, but if someone betrays me I tend to push them to arms length and keep them that way (even after forgiving them).  I have many many more friends at this forum than I have in the physical world.  My only somewhat close "physical" friends are my old junior high buddy who lives 2-1/2 hours away (I probably only talk to maybe 3 or 4 times a year) and my wife (who really is my best friend).  I really like people as individuals (most of the time), but I can't seem to like people in general.

I was born and raised an only child.  I moved nearly every year of my life until I was in the 8th grade, so I was constantly making new friends.  I had to keep myself entertained as a kid (even as a teen mostly), so when I got married it was a bit of a shock to be around the same person constantly. Even now with three children (all 18 years and older) and after being married 30 years I still find the need to seperate myself from everyone on occasion just to be alone.

EXACTLY!

I would just be hoping that we wouldn't get on each other's nerves after about an hour....sometimes like people tend to repel each other.

(oh yes, and I totally got the cool little twist you made on John Bender's "bowling" quote...only in that movie I would have been John Bender and you would have been Andrew Clark).

Actually, save for the moving around, we all sound about the same. 

If you two are Bender and Clark, I guess that makes me Allison Reynolds except male.  lol!

Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever
it was we did wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you
who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us: In the simplest terms, in the
most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain,
an athlete,a basket case, a princess and a criminal.

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,


The Breakfast Club.

When we started speeches and oral reports in school, I just about died of embarrassment the first few times.  I finally got it under some control where I could do it, and once I got up to do it I was fine.  But waiting for my turn I was a blob of nervous anxiety.  The day of our band's first real gig I was a huge bundle of stressed out nervous energy.

I found out I excelled at this and ended up loving it. Public Speaking was my favorite class in college so much so I took it more than once. I would normally volunteer to go first. Sometimes I could do improv if I knew enough about the topic or acted like I did. I remember one improv topic was M&M's and I winged it for 5 minutes talking about M&M's.

I always thought this was funny and even said the routine at church one time before speaking:

Funny!

I can do it, but only for a short time.  Anything over about 2 hours and my energy wanes.  Need to recharge.

(love the Breakfast Club posts  Thumbs Up )

I forced myself to do seminars on the cults back in '94 and 2001.  Four 1 hour sessions, with a question and answer afterwards. I was nauseous before going out onstage, and I said "UM" a LOT !!! LOL !
I ONLY got thru it by the grace of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit. I felt lead to not keep all those years of study and research to myself. It was a good thing cuz several years later, I still have people walk up and tell me how much those seminars cement their faith and how they've talked to people in different cults. It's a good feeling.

A lot of reasons from my childhood and some bad experiences made me introvert too.

This makes me sad.  You are such a fantastic and loving person, I can't imagine anyone treating you poorly.

True. While I've never met Vonnie in person, knowing you thru CHM and FB you're one of the sweetest persons I've ever met.

The hardest part is that some things happend in church. I have had a hard time to deal with those things.
In my Bible is written when you have something with a person talk about it.
That's not what happend.
No one dare to tell what they have said about me.
But I think how some people in church treat me is not confirm the will of God.
I don't want to write a lot about this here.

Thanks for telling me that. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
