Shyness As A Way In

I used to use shyness as a way out of things growing up. It was easy because most people understood boundaries and shyness made a very effective social barrier.

I used it as a tool to say no.

I never made it into a reason to try; Less pain to continue as is rather than to change the parts.

I realize that since shyness is such a big part of my identity, it would also be okay to use it as a way to be more of myself.

To love it and embrace it, rather than to push it away and be someone I’m not.
