    I'm Not Shy...

    I'm just not an attention-*****. If someone wants others to pay attention to them, fine. I'm not that person. I'd rather listen to a group of people have a conversation and throw my two cents in. I wouldn't ever dominate a conversation or want to. I'm fine with being noticed...

    Invisible

    I actually am REALLY uncomfortable with attention. I would rather be invisible, or at least have the majority of the attention not focused on me.
