    Does Anyone Know What Shy Means?

    Yes, I am very shy plus I have anxiety so talking to someone new can very very nerve wrecking to me sometimes, but once I get comfortable around someone I can talk to them easier and I calm down being around them. I don't have to worry about it when I am just texting or messaging...

    When i was young i always was the spontaneous

    kid but that quickly changed after i started to get picked on. People always had to target me since i had a very weak backbone and they just knew i wouldn't do anything to prevent it.. It had gone so far that i actually had to fight just so that people knew they should just...

    My Lost Bunny.

    When I was 13, I met this boy, Bunny, that I cared for deeply. We just got along so well and I told him so much, and he shared even more about him. I guess, from day one, I loved him and his sensitive nature. I loved the way he could blush at any little thing, we even played this...

    Never Been Outgoing, But It's Getting Worse

    I'm going to try to keep this short, simply because I have to leave really soon. I've always been shy. It happens when you're the awkward nerd with no friends in elementary. But lately it's become more and more apparent to me how much it's affecting my life. I don't have many...

    I've been a shy person every

    since I was little. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so shy because sometimes people take it the wrong way and think that I don't like them or that they did something wrong. I want to be outgoing and talkative right away like I am when I warm up to people.

    Very Much So...

    I cant help it. I'm trying my best to get over it and i am, i think, little by little, but i still have a long way to go. I'm so shy that quite often my shy nature is mistaken and people just think i'm a snobby person, that's not the case at all. I'm just so painfully shy that i...

    I wasnt born shy, in fact

    as a kid i was more care-free and always in my own little world; no matter what anyone said to me it would always go through one ear and out the other. I feel like I only became shy when i started going to school and got bullied a lot :/ From then on i feel too self-conscious...

    I'm an observer not a doer.

    I prefer to stay out of stuff and just watch. I don't talk really, only when I absolutely have to.

    why I'm shy. It's called personality and everybody's is different. It's not a phase, it's just who I am. I happen to like my personality and the people who love me do too. Everybody doesn't have to be loud, bubbly or crave constant attention. There are some people on this earth...

    I am definitely very shy.

    I find it hard to start conversations and a lot of times I never know what to say. It can be very tough to deal with at times.

    And they even got mad that I've known there for some time on and off and I still act so shy around them. I don't know why I'm like that, but I've been shy for so long. I'm not shy around my family or really really close friends. But around everyone else I'm shy. And I don't know...

    I am a very shy person.

    In real life, I'm very shy.

    I'm just not very good at talking to people - especially strangers. What would I say? What would we talk about? What if I said something embarassing, or something inappropriate without even realising it? I have a few friends (like... maybe 5 or 6) that I would consider "close...

    This is my weakness… i hate being shy

    because i have a loud mind. Its hard to talk to people you don't know and i really don't know how to keep a conversation running without making it awkward or me being a weirdo. I have a fun side too only if we have a lot in common but the downside is I'm really shy at first...

    I have always been shy and what makes it weird is that I am really confident around children. Maybe this is because it is a line of work I KNOW I am good at. I always know what to say to them and when I work with the older children, I have no problem calling out the register of...

    I've been getting better recently.

    I'm good with meeting new people, and I think I make a good first impression. Keeping it up is the hard part, though. Usually what calms me down is the thought that "this person hasn't known me for long, so they can't judge me," or "I probably won't see them again, so don't...
