I don't think a shy child ever overcomes shyness. One learns to push past it much of the time; to change behavior, but left to my own devices, I tend to withdraw, avoid confrontation, crowds of strangers, and aggressive people. I'm still shy on the inside. I have learned self preservation means saying no - and standing up for myself - and I do feel a bit proud when I do . But I don't like how I feel while it's happening. It's not comfortable to try to be something I am not.
|Gracie is shy, too.|
|Me in another life... (a black swallowtail to be!!)|
This is the hottest summer I've experienced in my 20 years in the south. I'd move if I could!!! But September is coming, and any day now, I might have enough extra $$ to get cooler...
Hope everyone out there is keeping cool too.
