    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 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.

    I Can Be. Very Much.

    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...
