Let's talk about...

Hello Lovely People,

Do you remember when I wrote my post on my personal body image (no? you can read it here if you would like). Well today I bring you another kind of blog post like that. This time I am going to talk about another bit of me that I would love to change about me and that is my shyness and my self conciousness.

A Little Shyness
source

I have always been a shy person at least from middle school. I can't remember much about first school but if my memories serve me right once you find a good friend in first school you are set. 

When I went to middle school, my closest friends went to other local schools leaving me to find new ones. I remember being nervous and scared to find new people to call friends.  Unlike in Primary school, there was cliques in my middle school. I became self conscious during this time because middle school begins the wonderful time of puberty, hair starts growing from everywhere, lumps begin growing on your chest and your emotions go crazy. It is then that I can remember that my self confidence got knocked a little. I was picked on a bit during middle school by some of the "more popular" girls and boys because I wasn't the most fashionable girl in the world (some may say I'm still not).

High School and University held some of the same problems. I wasn't picked on but I did find it hard to begin friendships. I guess what I'm trying to say is that when I'm around new people, meeting them for the first or just being around people who aren't my nearest and dearest, I can become very shy and quiet. My friends (who are all loud, crazy people) are always my support system and they can help me be more vocal in a group of new people.
Shyness!

I would really love to be outgoing and I think that blogging will help me slowly build up confidence, I love you all but when you think about it you are all strangers, therefore by chatting to you all I am chatting to new people. Granted it is easier to talk through a computer screen than face to face but I think if I ever meet any of you in real life I will have a little background knowledge about you so at least we can talk about beauty/fashion etc.

What is the point of this post you ask. Well part of me thinks that by writing this post if you ever meet me in the flesh and don't really speak or go bright red you will now maybe understand. The other part of me thinks that there is probably one or two people out there who will be like me and I think sometimes like with my body image post its better to just get it out in the open.

If you liked this post, let me know I love to do more let's talk about posts so if you can think of any things that we can talk about leave me a comment below. If you didn't like this post then just ignore it and hope the next one is better.

Till Next Time,

  1. I'm so shy in day to day life as well, I guess that's why I started my blog, not necessarily to get more confidence but so I had somewhere to go where I could express myself a bit more, just not through speaking, I'm not very good at actually talking to people :/ xx

    Love these posts lovely xx

  2. Hello lovely! I really enjoyed this post. When I was at Junior School I had a great set of friends and was all set to move to secondary school with them, but then something in my personal life turned my whole World upside down, and three weeks before the end of Junior school for me I had to move to the other side of my city and start my whole life ver practically and as you can imagine that was hard for me to make new friends, and a new life. For a long, long time I was a shy, quiet girl, and although I'm still not one to draw attention to myself, I have gained more confidence in the person I am over the years. I may not be the prettiest, most fashionable, most intelligent, etc girl in the World, and of course I still have personal issues to work on, but I've not done bad considering I think. I have a degree, a decent job, a good boyfriend and amazing family and friends, so it's worked out in the end for me xxx

  3. Lovely post, I am - believe it or not - a bit shy also. Although I'm not as shy as I used to be. I get nervous speaking to new people which is why I often avoid going to blogging events or places by myself. I come over all hot and get tongue tied and often feel like I will say the wrong thing. So I totally identify with this post xx

  4. I'm also quite shy. I'm not with the people I know but, meeting new people and being put out of my comfort zone terrifies me. I think it has got better with age but, It is still there. x

  5. I've always been very shy too, I'm not sure if i'm getting better or worse with age - I guess the difference is I don't have to be around people now! :)
    I've suffered for it too, I didnt get the mark I should have for my degree because I was too shy to do the verbal presentations, as just one example.
    I do like having a computer to hide behind!
    Thanks for your post! x

  6. Fab post hunnie!Well done for posting - it can be nervewrecking posting about yourself. I am also quite shy although I'm not as bad as I used to be but I used to get teased a lot in school. I try to push through the shyness now I'm older but blogging has given me more confidence xx

  7. It's great that you've posted about this because I know so many people can relate. I've always been a shy person too and I've had to push myself to not let my shyness prevent me from doing things that I'd enjoy. However, I also think that shyness isn't always a bad thing!
