"Surround yourself with ONLY people who are going to lift you HIGHER"-Oprah . This is so true.you should not let the people who constantly bring you down surround you. Only surround yourself with people who will lift you higher no matter what!
If you're going to be weird, be confident about it - yes, fly that flag with pride! Not saying introverts are generally weird, but a lot of people seem to think we are because they don't understand :-)
