The Perfect Metaphor

by mylifein100words

It’s the perfect metaphor for differing views on life. One is an extrovert; the other an introvert. The plants were put out on a beautiful sunny day, so they could get air and sunshine. They were on the little table on the balcony, cozied up to one another, leaves and fronds touching. The extrovert thinks plants are happy when they can brush against each other, friends gently patting one another.

The introvert moved them apart. “They don’t want to be that close, invading one another’s space. They need room to grow, breathe.”

Different experiences. Different outlooks. Different approaches. Introvert. Extrovert.
