    Ever Whish You Could Go Back and Start Over?

    For as long as I remember, I was always extremely shy around people.  I wish I would have seeked out help when I first realized I wasn't  like the other kids.   Maybe I wouldn't be where I'm at today.  I got into a bad habit of avoiding uncomfortable...

    I grew up extreamly shy,

    I would always have troubles finding new friends. One of the reasons is because while growing up I never went outside and play or whatever, I never really had friends growing up. The other reason is because I was afraid of looking like a complete fool infront of people. I don't...

    I was molested by mother

    before I was adopted, a mute when I was younger, and held back from society and now I don't know how to talk to people. Talking is a skill and I lack the skill.

    I used to be so shy and quiet,

    that I would get marked absent in class and I sat on the front row in front of the teacher. This happened almost daily (LOL). I'm not so shy and quiet anymore.

    I was always this shy timid girl you would see

    in class staring out the window in her own little world. I am that way still. I grew up with being shy. My parents are outgoing and very social so it's not something I inherited. I just can't seem to find a way to talk to people. I remember in kindergarten, it was a pretty...

    I was definitely extremely shy growing up.

    I had trouble talking to anyone and everyone. I think I'm still pretty shy but not as bad as I was
