Are you shy? How about any of your kids?


I'm shy and I hate it! My kids only get shy in some occasions but not normally. I used to be so shy that I couldn't even call to order a pizza.... I've gotten better with that though but still consider myself extremely shy.

I used to be super shy. I was even in counseling for it in school because they thought there was something wrong with me. I literally had anxiety attacks talking to new people but I have definitely gotten better. Of course once I'm comfortable with people I'm crazy lol

My son thankfully is no where near shy which I love!

Me too.

Quoting jen113000:

I've been told the same thing :(

Quoting mumsy2three:

I am the same way and unfortunately I've been told I come off as snobby/stuck up :(

It's something I am still trying to work on but I just have a really hard time with it.

Quoting jen113000:

Same here for me, I am very shy but if the person starts to talk to me I loosen up then I'm fine. But I can't just start a conversation with someone I don't know...

Quoting mumsy2three:

I am shy and I hate it. Once I get to know you though I am pretty outgoing.

My sons aren't too shy but my dd is a little bit.

I was soooooooo shy that when I used to walk in hallway in high school and I see a group of people I would walk

another way.  I have out growth my shyness. I am not life of the party but I can talk to people. I admit I have moment that I become shy. My husband is super shy but once he gets to know you he will talk to you. It took him a year before he talked to my siblings. My son is people person.

I was growing up.  Especially when it came to meeting new people.  My kids were both shy around stranger's but I think going to school helped with that. Now both of my kids are social butterflies. Especially dd. That girl can talk your ear off.
