I Do My Best To Try And Over-come It.

As far back as I can remember I've always been the quietest person in my family. My Grandad used to joke that he never even heard me speak until I was 10.

But when someone is naturally quiet, it's very hard to come out of your shell. As I'm always told it's all about confidence. I'd like to think I'm a confident kind of person but as I've been told you can't be confident and shy, but I'm not too sure that's true either.

I'm a very quiet person, too. As was pointed out to me, there is a difference between being shy and being an introvert. I had never heard that before, so did some research and found out some interesting things about myself and others. My thoughts are that everyone is different, and it's ok to be quiet and/or shy. You can always continue to work on becoming more outgoing, but in the meantime embrace some of your other great qualities (and we all have some!), and celebrate you!

That's both interesting and nice, thanks.
