You ever wonder why turtles have shells? One of the most known reasons is to protect themselves from predators, but other than that you probably don’t think about it much because turtles are born with shells and people accept them the way they’re born.
But when it comes to people having shells, others always want to find a way to bring them out of their shell. When you find someone who’s introverted, people always try to find a way to make them a social butterfly. Some people are born with shells and you should accept them the same way you accept turtle shells.
My 1SG is soon retiring and leaving the company. He gave an exit speech today and said that he gave some people a hard time to bring them out of their shell. I know he gave me a hard time and it didn’t bring me out of my shell. It just got on my nerves. I’m the type of person that I’m not going to change unless I see a reason to better myself. I don’t change to make others comfortable.
There are situations where I’m more social and there are situations where I’m more reserve. I don’t live in a shell 24/7 just as turtles don’t. Yeah I will always have my shell but I do come out of it in my own way.
