    The world is scary ok?

    There are way too many extroverted people and there's a lot of preassure.

    When ever speak I usually have to repeat myself.

    I don't like it, so I don't talk that much, unless you are really close to me...

    People view me as unfriendly

    or aloof, because I don't talk a lot. I am just observing and learning. I really don't like being the center of attention.

    When I was in elementary school I used to be

    one of the most liked and talkative kids, I was quite popular back then. Once I started middle school all of that changed, I started getting bullied alot by this group of seventh graders, I never really understood why. I started getting a lot shyer because when I started talking...

    You can recognize when someone is feeling shy

    or bashful, or when it is obvious that they have butterflies in their stomach. They would feel rather light-headed, or begin to sweat and continually blush. Being shy is an unsettling feeling. It is easy to recognize and acknowledge, but it is nearly impossible to cease. And...

    There are times people don't

    even notice I'm there because I never speak up or do much of anything to get myself noticed.

    Yeah, and it's been like

    that my whole life. I'm a quiet person who hates to stand out. I'm not good at small talk so when I meet a new person it gets awkward fast. I can never come up with anything interesting to say so they usually find me to be a dull human being. People usually describe me as a laid...

    All my friends are either family members,

    or friends of family members, or co-workers. I've never been good at breaking the ice with strangers, at branching out of my little circle. Online, I can talk about anything with anyone. In real life it's much more difficult for me. It takes forever to get to the point where I...

    I have a serious case,

    I act rude when I get shy or uncomfortable and I can't even talk on the internet being under the constant pressure of acting out to the expectation of being funny and quirky

    Sometimes, if I'm about to message someone

    something that I'm scared they'll judge. I'll hurry and throw it out there, and if they act awkward, I block them and never look back ;-;

    I tend to have a hard time meeting new people.

    I'm always second guessing what I'll say and how to introduce myself to others.

    It shocks everyone who knows me,

    except those who knew me before age 10. I was terrified of everyone outside my family and every place (including church and school) outside my home until I was in the 4th grade. My baby sister was born that year and that's the only reason I can imagine that I broke out, but I...

    Interesting how being anonymous can bring one

    out of the shyness part of their life. If we were to meet in real life I would appear quiet and a bit of a recluse. I feel I can live a bit more bold here in EP.
