I've been an incredibly shy kid. Growing up shy can be quite challenging, and because I am still struggling today I drew some comics about being the shy kid.

Scroll down to check them out!

The same happens in corporate meeting rounds. You start preparing how to introduce yourself. "Hello I am X Y, I work as ABC....No: hello, X Y my name, currently working on ABC. No. Ok, still two people before I need to go. Wait, why is the person next to me leaving the room? Everyone eyeing me now? Oh, It is my turn..." – "Herrg Err Err, I X Y am, uh, er, working also here, yes, er, thank you."

It took a year of offering to get my son's girlfriend to accept my offers of after school snacks- in contrast, his best (male) friend knows where I keep the rice cakes that I buy just for him. I was the kid that would be dying of hunger at friend's houses- I hate to think that our guests are uncomfortable in any way

On the first day of my college I climbed into the wrong bus because I felt too weird to ask the people on the bus stop about which one's the right one

My latest feat on that field is work-related questions(not even the "how do I do this?" but rather the "what is it that needs done here exactly?" kind of questions which are not just legitimate but welcome usually) and 2 hours self-coaxing I have to do every time before asking one XD I think I'm improving though, more like 1 hour now

Yep, this is definitely me. Usually I just improvise. For example, if I need white out, I just scribble the word out instead even though it looks messy.

He, in my country, we grab stuff without asking.... and many instead of returning it just put it inside their purses.

I have always been exactly like this. Most of the time, people find me unfriendly and weird. I have almost no friends. I wish people knew that I was just shy but always willing to give a hand when they need help :'(

This is so me. Sometimes I even pretend being 'suddenly' ill so I don't have to greet them in person >.<

Add to this also polite behaviour, like, waiting for the person to let them finish because you don't want to interrupt their talking, and there you go! Mute forever. *sigh*
