Stop Telling Yourself A Garbage Story

When I was a kid, I was shy. At least, that’s the story I believed. I didn’t always know what to say to adults, so I would hear them say, “oh, he’s really shy.” And I bought it.

I was the shy kid, doing what shy kids do. I avoided times of talking in front of people and stayed away from being the center of attention.
