    The Quiet One

    I've always been the quiet and reserved one in my group of friends. Like my friends are crazy, wild and outgoing. But I'm just really laid back, chill, I like to hang out at home most of the time. My 21st birthday is coming up and they are trying their hardest to get me to go to...

    Take Me Out Of The Box!

    .I've always been quite and shy. I suppose that's because of my up bring. I always felt bad about talking in front of people because my family would tell me to shut up when I began to speak. I've learned to blend into the wall really. I'm not loud, "ghetto" whatever you want to...

    There are times when I don't feel as though I don't fit in with my own racial group. How sad is that? I'm very quite and somewhat anti-social. I use that term very lightly. I obviously talk to people and do things, but I really just like being alone and keeping to myself. So many...

     I am introverted and I will be nothing else.  I'm mixed black and white, so that makes it a little tougher because I find it extremely hard to find friends or people to truly relate to.  Can't really rely on white people or black people, and it can get frustrating...

    It Feels Like I'm Afraid Of Everything

    As a child i've always been shy, but as I grew older it got worse. I have problems approaching women, because i fear rejection and fear that they'll just get tired of me. I've tried becoming more inviting, but it just isnt who I am. I've also lost friends because of this. They'll...

    Change Over Time

    It seems as if over time I became more introverted....or maybe I never accepted it to begin with.  throughout high school I was more out going but I was more of a social butterfly.  I was close to a few ppl but did not have a huge circle of "friends". ...

    I Hate The Media!

    So, I'm a shy, quiet, and reserved black girl in high school. I've always been one my entire life. I live in a predominately white little town. Most of the blacks at my school are in the "in crowd" and act ghetto and loud, and it just irritates the crap outta me because I don't...

    I Am An Introvert...

    I've only recently truly discovered what an introvert is. It was a bit of a surprise, I suppose, to see how neatly I fit in the description. There's no desire to fix it, I'm just glad it has a name and there are others out there I might connect with/to. There hasn't been much...
