Almost Too Shy to Do This

I'm so shy that even writing on here anonymously is a little scary for me. I hate when people tell me "You don't need to be shy" or "Stop being shy" because if I could turn it off like a lightswitch, i would have done so ages ago.

This is the first story i've written on here, because I'm afraid of saying something wrong. Not that it would even matter, because no one knows me. Except in some way, it would.

For being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

I guess we all have things about us that we wish we could just turn off. Some may even have qualities that they wish they could just turn on as well I suppose. I can't say that I am shy, but I do understand why many people are. I think that the shy people have more meaningful conversations when they are comfortable talking to me. I always learn something new from these conversations as well. Besides, I like to listen to what people have to say and this site seems to be a great place to do just that. I am also new here and I hope that you will continue to use this site. The stories are amazing and I wish I had found this site sooner. Maybe, I will even get to hear more from you.

I feel very close to this, and consider myself a work in progress.<br />
I think this is half the reason why this site is great. You can express yourself how ever you want and to the type of people that share you common feelings.<br />

Hope this isn't your last contribution to the site :)

I know the feelings exactly; I'm terribly shy even e-mailing people I know. I also always fear, "Why would anyone care to read the drek I type?" But in a way it's easier to do on this site because the groups are more focused, hence people know what they want to read. Welcome to the site! :)

Well, I think you just did fine. I have only been at ep for a short few days, and this whole thing is new to me,but I love it. You can never say anything wrong.(Unless you jurt someone's feelings) So keep your chin up and be brave. J
