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."

I'm kinda half-ish shy, not in every situation, but this sounds SO familiar. XD I always think of something to say, and it ALWAYS comes out entirely different and weird.

I always feel my heart beats super fast when it's my turn. And when I finish, I sweat like hell --> feel even more embarassed =.=

I am not a shy person, I really am not. But at the same time I really relate to this. I can act confident, I can act friendly but I still feel this sort of anxiety...the pressure to just like be normal

My last name is hard to pronounce, the teachers always struggle and they end up saying the first letter of my last name

PLEASE tell me the black cat got the same `happy ending' with her human, that the "Good Dog" got.

I'm extremely shy in some circumstances but I've never experienced this before. I'm always able to answer my name in a roll call without a problem.

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 :'(

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*
