I know that surprises people. Especially because I have a blog. But I am shy. And awkward. And I don't feel comfortable in most social situations. And, yes, it is sometimes scary to hit "publish" after I write a post.
Which is one of the reasons I started this blog. I wanted to push myself a little. To open up and try something that I wasn't completely comfortable doing.
I've mentioned that one of my goals this year is to be more confident. I don't have any idea how I'm going to accomplish this but it still seems important. So, I decided to make it a priority this week - and at least try to make some headway.
Why is it so important now? Well, I have struggled with this most of my life. I avoid parties, crowds, and even small talk with my neighbors. I just get too nervous.
I had accepted this about myself years ago, but unfortunately, others have not.
For some reason, other people view me as unfriendly or snobby. And that makes me a little sad. Because I'm not.
I'm just shy.
And I want to work on being more outgoing.
So, this week, I want to make some changes. Try new things. Be more confident.
I am dedicating the whole week to blog posts about this subject - and I hope that I can help some people - and maybe even myself.
