> I used to think gaining experience was about putting yourself out there, trying new things, being hyper extraverted. But that’s only part of the equation. Experience requires introspection.

been thinking about the same thing! FOMO compels us to say "yes" to anything and everything, but in truth if we were really out and about all the time, always going on trips / adventures / forming special memories, I have a suspicion that that would become its own kind of monotony and dreariness. the quiet moments of solitude make the adventure that much more nourishing.
