Thanks. That really did help me out a lot. I feel like that is very much true.
You ever feel left out? You ever feel like maybe somebody's talking bad about you behind your back? Or maybe I'm just being paranoid.
YES!!! All the time!!!
Sadly, that is often another one of the things that comes with this quiet and shy...
I feel like that sometimes. It's not the happiest feeling. Hopefully it passes soon for you.
The best thing to do about paranoia about the popular crowd whispering and giggling about you, not even having the decency to insult you to your face, is to remember how shallow, petty, and pathetic that type is. Not worth your time, attention, or concern. So what if they mock you? How sad is it for them that making fun of other people is the only way they can bolster their own tiny egos? Worthless psychological runts. Ignore them. Be who you are and the world can take it or leave it.
Trust me. It works MUCH better that way. Plus you're more likely to find and make REAL friends who admire you for YOU.
Hey Hubert. I like the You on here. PM me sometime if you want to just vent.
I know I've said this before but being the only Asian in my classes particuarly in elementary school was really hard for me. I'm not saying I got bullied but I did get the occasional Asian stereo type questions...it hurt more when people would ask me about why I looked the way I did. Even now I still have some identity issues resulting from that.
I've always been the same way. People were always telling me to "stop being shy" or "tell yourself you won't be shy" but that only made it worse. After a long time I realized I had to learn to love and accept myself, occasional shyness and all. That's just how I am sometimes and there's nothing wrong with that. When you take the pressure off yourself it gets easier to be more comfortable around people.
Sorry for the delay in replying, I've been without power for a week!
I've learned sometimes things are easier said then done. People can't change so easily.
But that's the thing, I think if change is your goal, then nothing will change. Change has to happen like organically, ya know?
It's just kinda irritates me when people are like "so just change." I mean it's not like changing from your clothes to your pajamas at night.
Thanks Heralde, that really helped
I thought I was helpful.
No problem; shy people have to stick together! Lol
I consider myself only half shy.
Seriously! The non-shy types just don't understand what we go through.
Preach it brother!
The thing is they are told from a young age that being "outgoing" is the better way to be and that's simply a myth. Outgoing and shy are just different from each other, but neither is better. You need both types in society.
Yeah well it took me a long time and many years to be outgoing. A lot of my shyness came from going through school. I'm not saying I had a terrible time in school but I didn't have a good time either. But then again who did have it easy in school?
