    Making My Way.....=]:

    I am willing to chat and have a conversation but i honestly don't feel the need to fill every silence with mindless chatter. Mind you i do have some days when i get really hyper and spout whatever comes to mind, but most days i'm pretty mellow. Sometimes i don't speak at all...

    I Can Be Very Shy And Quiet

    Sometimes I'll be sitting at a table near a group of people  and I don't partake in their chatting..  I think I'm  being quiet and shy then.

    Eurieka!

    I've just had an epiphany. I've realized that the problem was that i was trying to become popular with people who didn't care about me all that much. I wasn't focusing on those who accepted me for who i was already. I wanted to get out there. However I didn't realize that just by...

    Terry

    For those of you who haven't guessed, Terry is just my internet persona. In real life I'm quiet and unassuming. Some would say excessively so. I still like a joke though .

    Shy and Loving It

    This isn't really a background story or anything. Just me sharing some thoughts and idea's on a publicly shy personality. I'm not sure about all shy people, but I know with me the shyness is an outward appearance in public or outside of my comfort zone. So...

    I Was Afraid Of Talking In Front Of People.

    When I was small, I never would go up and talk in front of others, I would freak out. One time, in third grade, my class was going to sing Christmas carols at a nursing home. I freaked out and started crying. I don't think my teacher, Mrs. C liked me anymore. Whenever I had to...

    Can Be? I Am.

    I hate how people always ask me why I'm so quiet. It's so irritating. Anyway, I am very quiet and shy. I never have anything to talk about. I don't want to open up to people and let them really know me. I can't. Being quiet is just the way I am and obviously no one can take it...

    Am a Listner

    I listen a lot. To everyone and interject my thoughts carefully and only when needed. I prefer to be shy and quiet cause it doesn't force me into situations I would rather not be in presently. Sometimes confrontation is necessary and I realize that and step forward. Most times...

    Yes I'm Shy

    I want to overcome this shyness. I have always been shy. I remember this one time in high school I had to make a speech about something in class and when I sat down the girl in front of me turned around and was like "Your face is SO RED!" Why do people have to point out the...

    As I Wrote to Someone

     Shy means closed and self-conscious. You’re shy in situations that touch matters in which you don’t feel free to expose yourself (and don’t have or unmotivated to support an appropriate image). with girls I’m shy cos I it’s not something I...

    That's Me

    I'm exceptionally shy and quiet when you first meet me. That's probably one of the reasons it's so hard for me to make friends and get to know people. I have a bad habit of saying things before I speak that overly sensitive people would get offended by, so I like to "feel" a...
