    Very Shy And Quiet

    I'm currently 17 years old and I've always been a shy and quiet person, when I was younger I was so shy that whenever I visited my grandparents I would be too shy to talk to them but that's no problem now. However I get shy and nervous just ordering food in a restaurant or buying...

    On The Outside

    On the outside I am nothing but a deserted shell. I don't speak unless I am spoken to and even then it is very little. But, on the inside, there's a load of commotion going on that people would be more than a little surprised about since they only know the outside me. I think it...

    Guess I was just always on the quiet side.

    Being shy.. well a lot of things happened big and small. It often seemed like everytime I climbed a rung of the confidence ladder something would drag me down two more. I sometimes wish I was more confident but I am what I am.

    It Turns Out To Have A Negative Impact On Me!

    Well, people around me seemed to hate shy and quiet people. They think you're being arrogant and cold. You just can't go up to anyone and say hey," Stop thinking that i am proud of myself, I am just shy..." right? If you admit you're shy in public, people are just gonna laugh at...

    Super Super Super Shy

    Until you get to know me. Then just add a bizzare sense of humour to that shyness. OR When I'm angry. Then I am a roaring force to be reckoned with... and I will level whole cities like a nuclear reactor!!!

    Shy? Certainly...

    Well, first off, my issue socializing is that some people tend to rub me the wrong way for whatever reason. Some people, honestly, at times, I would like to reach out and punch square in the face, but as I realize this would be an inappropriate thing to do of course I'll hold...

    Quiet, But Not So Shy

    I was shy, but only for a little while (the dreaded middle school time). When I was a little kid I was kind of lonerish, I always just liked my close friends and mom. Now that I'm a little older I'm loosing my temporary shy streak, and it's such a relief, because it gave me so...

    Born This Way

    I was born quiet and shy. At different points in my life I have been one or the other, sometimes both. I remember sitting at the "popular" table in 6th grade. I never spoke a word, I just ate my lunch listening to my fellow pupils conversations. One day one of the popular girls...

    I am not open to many people.

    I am usually quiet, and I don't really like attention. So if I like you enough to show you the real me, YOU must be very special.

    At 41 years old I am still very shy, and it takes me a while to get used to people and open up.  I prefer watching and listening to people and sitting back relaxing and just observing, instead of being the life of the party.

    My Shyness

    Ever since I was lil I have been very shy and quiet.  I think I'm the quietest one at work and in my family.  I'm not sure why I'm that way and I wish I could be more outgoing but I am not that way unless I get to know you better. Maybe it was...

    I begin each morning in pain of thy unloved self. You might say " go do something about it." It's harder then reality itself </3

    My Shyness = Friendlessness

    As a child i was left alone and isolated  for very long periods of time. As a result to this day i still have problems socializing. It had an affect on me that i just cant seem to control or shake. I have serious trouble when it comes to making friends. I know my shyness is the...
