I feel that I have a shyness that I can hide quite well. I have pushed this back into the darkside of me. Many times in my life I have was crippled by my shyness. Hiding behind a wall. Now I am free. Don't mess with this biach.

My youngest daughter was painfully shy when she was young. Now you can't hold her down. Quite a difference.

I still have problems with public speaking. I am comfortable speaking to a small group of no more than 20. Put me in front of an auditorium filled with people and I swear you can hear my knees knocking and can see my heart trying to pound its way out of my chest.

I used to be real shy, but now I just sit back and observe everyone and start talking when I feel comfortable enough.

It also gives you an edge so you know a little bit more about a person

yep I'm pretty shy, when I'm in a large group of people especially if I don't know many of them really well, then I'm usually pretty quiet. It can take me a while to get to know people sometimes and then I'm more comfortable around them. Or alternatively, just give me a few drinks and I'll be right lol

I have come along way since my wallflower days. No longer will I sit in the corner and just be. Life is too short to let it pass by. Speak up! and if that doesn't work, I agree about a couple of drinks to warm ya up.

I used to be very shy, but over the last year or so after having done a few Paul Mckenna confidence tapes I found real progress and would go and chat to girls, dance with them etc whereas before it would take a miracle or being very drunk for me to even give it a shot.

I can be shy but I can also be kinda of outgoing.. it just depends on the situation and people although I'm trying to speak up more now.
