Hi. Thank you for your comment. I think I do have social anxiety. I'm always concerned about the impression I leave on people. Sometimes I want to take part in social gatherings or even spark up conversations with people but, my shyness gets in the way. I always wonder if they think I'm being rude or stuck up because I don't speak much. It would be helpful if you could share your thoughts on my experiences.Hi Just.Tia~
First off, welcome to Personality Cafe! Glad to have you.
Are you asking for confirmation on whether or not you're an introvert?
Shyness is more like a learned behavior designed to avoid anxious situations, typically with other people since shy people want other people's approval. You could just as easily be an extrovert and shy as well. Not saying you are though, from what you've described, yeah perhaps an introvert. Care to elaborate? I'm not sure if you're just stating what you think you're like and then that's that.
You're not weird for not liking parties and large groups of people. Tons and tons of people are like that too.
Thank you so much for you comments. I really feel better about my situation now after reading your post. There is so much I have to work on and learn to make myself a better person.There are ways to build up your confidence and focus on your own opinion of yourself instead of how other people think of you. Think of it this way. Other people's opinions of you are none of your business, or your concern. Plus, keep in mind that just as much as you worry about yourself, other people are worrying about themselves as well. You're not that important... in a good way.
