One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is a new belief about himself or herself. (Sam Adeyemi, TV broadcaster)

Personality determines both how one sees himself and how others see him as well. Some are shy and withdrawn, perhaps indicating an inferiority complex. Others are more open and vocal. A thoughtful extrovert might be able to help with a bit of interaction and encouragement.  Such a conversation could bring them out of their “shell” making them more confident and involved.

Encourage those who are timid. (1 Thessalonians 5:14).  . . . Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them (Ephesians 4:29).
