    It seems that my parents think

    that i am not grateful to them for whatever they have done for me and that I am selfish and egoistic and hate people but the truth is I love my parents more than anything else in this world and I can sacrifice my life for them...its just that I am too shy to express my gratitude...

    I’m such an idiot. I want to change my

    attitude and be more outgoing but it’s so incredibly hard. I just wish I could start getting along with the boys next-door in the dormitory. We have been living next-door for 5 months now but all I can say is “hi” to them. I’m just too shy to start the conversation...

    At Least There's the Internet

    I write better than I speak, and I often trip up on my words and mumble more than I'm aware. The way people react to me has kept me to myself.

    I Said "no".

    Earlier, I said I'm too shy to say I'm being inconvenienced. Today, I said no. It bothers me however that I feel guilty, as if I'm a really bad friend not to help out. It so happened that I had a lot on my plate and my friend wanted some help at the same time. To be honest, if I...

    Yes To No

    Along with being very shy, I also tend to say yes to everything asked of me even when my plate is full. I feel pressured to help them. I do not know why I would go an extra mile to help even those people I don't like very much. What I usually do is just to keep away from them...

    I'm So Shy It's Sad

    I have not had an a person I could really call a friend since I was in 8th grade. In high school, I was painfully shy, only had a few friends I barely knew who took pity on me, and the fact that I went to a school full of snobs, did not help matters. I'm almost 21 and still very...
