I am very shy in around others, and I really only speak up if spoken to. I also feel insecure in “crowds”. I think that others may judge me. I think this is a trait I developed when I was a lot younger.
On the other hand, I do have a desire to serve others in community service.
My question is: does my introvertedness prevent me from truly serving God? I read that St. Therese of Lisieux was also introverted.
