Being an Introvert in a world of extroverts.

I believe I am an introvert person. I don't know why, but it just makes sense.
All my life I've blamed myself for who I am. Why don't I like being around people like others do? Why would I rather have a chill meeting with friends than have a crazy party with a bunch of people?
I think the stereotypical teenager is based on the extrovert ones, and that has screwed me up a bit in the past. Wondering every day what's wrong with me, why am I so different to everyone else.
The thing is that, as much as I'd like to believe I'm special because of this, there's a lot of introverts out there that went through the same things as I did.
With the passing of the years I've learnt to accept myself, every day a bit more, and that includes every part of myself.
However, I've constantly failed on accepting my lack of social skills, which everyone seems to have inherently.
I'm still working on it, yet here's what I have to say to all you introverts out there:
You're good. You're fine. It's not your fault and it's not a mistake or a fail. You're different and you're special. And, most importantly, you're not alone. We're on this journey together: let's embrace our introversy.
