Whether you're a "people person" or not, there's a certain amount of courage that it takes to step outside of the comforts of the life you've set up and venture into someone else's. Stepping into other people's lives and allowing other people to step into yours may feel awkward and uncomfortable at times but the fruit that it can produce is well worth the trip. God has called us to not exist as islands but to exist as a community. He has called us to benefit from the fruit of strong, real, and meaningful relationships.
John 15 : 9-17
I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other.
