    Being Shy

    I love making new friends, and I find it easy to talk to people in an environment I'm comfortable in, with people I know well around me. When I'm in a class though, I feel so socially awkward and absolutely hate being asked questions. I panic and can't think what to say, and I...

    I'm Trying So Hard.

    I really am. It's mainly with guys that I find attractive. I freeze up in the conversation and it's just the most embarrassing thing ever. Being shy is the worst because who will ever want to be with you? Wouldn't you want someone to talk back to you? One of my best friends who...

    I'm Shy And I Hate It!

    I think the reason I am so shy is because I'm scared of rejection. I'm told regularly by my sister that I'm loud, obnoxious, and annoying so when I'm around new people I just sit there and not talk in fear of making a fool of myself and having people end up hating me. I'm so shy...

    I'm dancing to music

    that was popular in the 2000s, singing along to all the lyrics I know, and wondering why I can't do this in front of other human beings. I think it would be fun if I could dance with people.

    With Drama Club

    I have wasted too much time being shy. I have missed so many opportunities, and I know it's time for change. I auditioned for the school play a couple days ago, and at first I thought I didn't do well. I was very nervous and my voice was pretty shaky, but I surprisingly...

    It's the hardest thing ever, isn't it? When you've been seen as shy all your life, you can't just come out and pretend to be a lively person. Let's say most of my friends are really loud and want attention and the spotlight on them all the time. So people don't take notice of me...
