    Yep that's me although I grew up with a very

    extrovert/hippie/musical mum and dad ..,.. I loved the entertainment but I'm also not willing to put myself out there showing myself 100 percent, from my experience the closest people I'm not awkward with ...but they have been the most honest down to earth people I've met.

    I hate being shy around new people makes it so difficult to connect with them plus if their shy as well the situation just gets awkward fast.

    I hate myself for being like that. I mean, I can get very crazy with those I'm close with. I'm sure people would think that I'm just acting innocent or something.

    People my age seem so unfriendly. Like we all are under so much pressure from life and skeptical at best about making new friends. It's so awkward and a bit frustrating at times.
