    The Story Of My Life.

    Being as shy as I am, I've really never had any friends.  As I try to make friends, I somehow end  up pushing them away. This is my first year of high school, and I haven't made any friends I get shy around my mom, and when I'm with my dad as well. Both my parents dislike me...

    I Use to Talk Too Much

    I never used to be a shy person but a certain bad experience in my late teens took away all my self confidence.  It left me terribly depressed and with a severe social anxiety disorder.  Im fine in small groups of people i know, but as soon as theres anymore than 2 or 3...

    When Things Change

    When I was real young, I was fearless and curious. I still have the curiosity to some extent but fearless no longer exist. When we moved back to my mom's hometown, there was just no one to really connect with by the time I entered school I was afraid of it. I went through random...
