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

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 :'(

We teacher know!! But discussing a topic helps with active learning. We introduce the topic, you work in group then the evaluation.

NO! No eye contact.... they'll steal your soul. Really, it's what i thought it'll happened to me the first time i looked at somebody' face. I remember very well that pain in my heart. But i got over it and i'm cool with it.

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*

I quite often sit there going "ok it's too late now" "well it's DEFINITELY too late now" "damn I could have said something but its been 2 days so maybe not"
