    I can't approach people

    and start a conversation with them first. I'm afraid to talk to anyone I don't know. I'm even afraid to message people online.

    I'm extremely shy around people I don't know

    or barely know. (Honestly, I'm having a hard time trying to post these "experiences") But hey, there is always a time to start getting more comfortable with myself and others. My goal is to one day openly talk to anyone!

    if they actually knew me but I'm too shy to act myself in front of people so everybody thinks I'm either awkward or just an *******.

    One Bad Trait.

    Ever since I was a little kid, I have found it unbelievably hard to walk up to someone and say something like, "Hey, do you want to hang out sometime?" Or, "Hey, I haven't seen you around before, I'm Megan!" Instead, I'm the stuttering, blabbing fool who can't seem to pluck up...

    Phones.

    I almost have a fear of phones. What if I can't understand what the other person is saying? What if I think they said one thing when they said another? What if I say something stupid? What if I just freeze up and don't say anything at all?

    whenever someone comes up to talk to me I start to shake, cry, and hyperventilate. Maybe that is why I have no friends.
