I’m an introvert with plenty of silent strength. I have the intense determination and the inner strength of a lion but I have the social awkwardness of an overweight nerd with glasses.
You’re a loaner! Why are you alone in your room while everyone else is chatting? Do you enjoy being alone?
Hell no, I enjoy talking to people but people will think I’m weird if I get quiet and run out of words. I don’t enjoy being shy or alone.
I’m trying to get over the shyness but when I tell myself to act anyway, my nervous energy shuts me off.
If I I’m at a party, forget about it! I’ll be invisible because I’m not talking or making people laugh. I’m frozen with nervous, paralyzing fear. I want to say something but no words are coming out.
Someone get me a drink or I’m going to have a heart attack!
