Introvert Quote of the Week: June 22

From Scandal Facebook page

Just about any introvert can relate to this week’s quote:

I’ll be honest with you. I’m a little bit of a loner. It’s been a big part of my maturing process to learn to allow people to support me. I tend to be very self-reliant and private. And I have this history of wanting to work things out on my own and protect people from what’s going on with me.
