Being Shy Makes Me Feel Little.
I am 24 years old and have always been shy ever since I was a child I was quiet and didn't have many friends. I always felt like being shy made me a victim to bullying in school because I felt so alone and had nobody to defend me and I didn't have the confidence to defend myself. I have gotten better over the years though trying to make friends and overcome my shyness but I still feel like I am really shy. I hate it when people call me "cute" its not that its an insult but it makes me feel little like im just "a cup of tea" and people don't take me seriously. It gets frustrating and sometimes I feel really sad and lonely. Growing up my mom always spoke for me and didn't let me speak and she'd tell people i'm too shy to speak and it always stuck with me I believed her that i didn't have enough initiative. And now I have trouble expressing myself to people. However I do believe that it is in my head if I keep working on it I can get over it. Day by day. :)
