    Not the Typical Shy Person

    There are times when I'm quiet but, most of the time, I would say I talk too much.  I think my anxiety of being in awkward situations makes me babble on. It makes people confused when I tell them I'm shy or anxious because they can't see it.  I would like to come out...

    Ridiculously shy. That's me. I have a hard time talking to people about anything. I don't ever feel like what I have to say is relevant or important, or I'm afraid that the person I'm talking to is sitting there thinking about how much they wish I would just shut up and go away...

    Time Is Running Out...

    Most of the time I keep to myself, and it probably doesn't matter. This time, though, I need to speak up...I need to open up before it's too late. You have no idea how I feel about you...and you never will unless I tell you. I'm scared...scared that you'll laugh in my face...

    Am I Not Turtley Enough?

    I'm just really introverted. I tend to keep to myself and stay quiet. I know I do this way too much and the only way to end it is to do something about it, but it's so much easier to say/think than to do, right?

    I feel like I'm coming out of my shell.

    . I grew up where I couldn't show much of my body, I couldn't dance, I couldn't curse but now I just don't care, I wanna party, I wanna do what I wanna do
