    I Used  to Be Very Shy...

    I used  to be very shy when I was younger. As I got older, that changed to...timid, and at this stage of the game, I'd call myself reserved, definitely.

    To Thine Ownself Stay

    I am. I am introverted, shy, reclusive. I am a dreamer/thinker. I keep my thoughts and dreams to myself. I keep myself to myself, really.

    I know people mean well

    when they suggest I be more outgoing, but after years of this I admit that I get pretty tired of it. I don't understand why it's so hard for people to comprehend that we are who we are and the best thing to do is be accepting of our differences. There are all kinds of...

    I Can Be. Very Much.

    I can be very quiet and reserved when I'm not in the mood and I can also be a really hard egg to crack. I don't feel like talking at times or have a hard time telling people how I feel. Sometimes I don't want to be like this. Sometimes I just can't help it. But sometimes I can...

    A Tactful Reserved

    Recently, trusting people became less complex, or more so, I cannot control my mouth. Consider, the mind has taken a turn for an outcome. But aware of this, frantically this mind tries to shrink back. I gain trust and I trust, only to be betrayed, but fortunately only trivial...
