    Genetics Vs In-laws

    I read some where that shyness is genetic.  So it you're shy you're always gonna be shy to a certain extent. My mother-in-law totally doesn't get this. She always complains to my husband about how she just wants me to like her. The thing is, she doesn't get that being...

    Meeting People

    Well I'm a pretty shy person and for me its really hard to meet new people in new places such as a new school or somewhere were I don't know anyone and were I'm stranger, so I won't make eye contact and speak pretty softly. The problem here is that when that happens some people...

    I recently made some awesome online friends

    and they wanted to voice chat. The first time they called me, I just giggled for the whole call (which lasted around 3 hours) and said 'um' a few times. I'm so shy around people xD.

    It's hard for me to tell my friends & family

    everything & I'm so quiet in public. I can feel my face get hot as soon as my name is mentioned by a teacher or unfamiliar person. I would love to have someone to talk to such as a therapist but whenever my mom beings it up I get embarrassed & pretend I don't need one..

    Lost Friends

    I think my shyness started when I was 8. That was the year when life changed for me. I was in the third grade. Nothing different happened, just growth I suppose. I made a friend who sat next to me in class. We talked together and laughed together. Then our seats were changed...

    I am very very shy! I don't really like my voice

    so just the thought of someone being able to hear me scares me. When I was in school and talking to my friends if someone turned to me and commented on something I said the only thing I would think is "Oh god they heard what I said" and weirdly just being noticed by people makes...

    I find it hard to talk to people.

    I feel like they will not want to talk to me. I don't like being rejected. when people come up to me to talk I get really quite. I find it really hard to talk and my cheeks get really red. part of it is self esteem issues. I feel ugly and that people will judge me on my looks.
