All my life, I’ve struggled with being shy.
“You should talk more!” and “you’re too quiet!” are phrases I’ve heard all my life growing up, from people at school, people I vaguely know, and my dad. But a lot of people don’t realize how difficult that is for me. I want to be social. I want to use my voice.
Being shy is the feature I have that I have always dreaded above all the rest. For awhile, I would even get upset when someone called me “shy,” as I tried to convince myself that I’m just quiet. Although I have gotten much better with my speaking skills, it is still a part of my personality and I realize now that it probably always will be. So, instead of hating on myself for it, I have decided to accept it and use WordPress and other outlets to let out my thoughts and tell my stories.
As I said on my Home Page, this is life through the eyes of a shy girl.
