    Do You Feel Me?

    I was so shy I would escape to music or just shut my room. I was soo scared to read out loud.......Fear overtook me. Why I said, no answer. Tell me now. Do the angels take meds to feel normal??? I hate fear and shyness but it rules my life.

    Since I Was Young, But Not As Much Now!

    I can remember being about 5 or 6 years old and being so shy. I remember going to some class for the first time and crying my eyes out. I felt so lonely and it's weird after 41 years you can still remember that feeling. Then I went through my elementary and middle school years...

    Stop It Before It Stops Me.

    Its the worst feeling in the world. When you dont want to something because you are too shy , not because you CANT do it. If i wasnt shy i would have so many more opportunites opened up to but instead im closing doors in my own life because of how shy i am. This is in pretty...

    Indecisive Shy.

    I've been shy as long as I can remember. And everyone i've known would probably say the same thing. I was a shy little kid who never talked but I still managed to find good friends. The only problem was that even though I made friends, I had trouble keeping them because of my...

    But I always lose. I am the most shy person in

    the world and I am saying this because: 1-I can't look in people's faces when I talk to them 2-I can't speak with people when the phone rings so I just leave it and don't answer. 3- I did a quiz to measure how many per cent I am shy and I got 100% shy. What do I have to do? I...

    Slowly Improving

    When I was younger I was barely able to find the nerve to start conversations with people, even with those that weren't strangers. I was that girl who sat silently never making eye contact...never talking to anyone unless spoken too...I was practically invisible. Luckily, I'm to...

    A Goal.

    I set this as a goal of mine. It is my goal to someday "battle" mere shyness. My dream is to be shy. My life would no longer be a battle if I were shy. If only I were shy my life would be a million times better than it is now.
