What the hell are you talking about? I'm not shy. Don't get me wrong, I'm no offended but people these days don't even know the difference between shyness and just keeping your mouth shut. Some people just won't shut up. What gets under my skin most is when actual shy people, tell me I'm shy. Isn't that like a paradox or something? Anyway that's not important.
What is important is that there's absolutely nothing wrong with being shy. In fact being shy is totally underrated. I'm not going to deny my shy tendencies sometimes but those exist for a completely different reason and are not exactly typical shyness.
Now here is the real kicker. Don't like being shy? Well try this drug. What else is new. There is this drug called Paxil, which for some reason each time I read the name reminds me of Pixar. It is supposed to be able to turn introverts into extroverts. Sounds fascinating but after reading the article of a fellow who gave it a try, I'm hardly surprised.
In retrospect, it was a bad idea to screw with my brain chemistry and possibly inflict lifelong damage just for the sake of experiment. I would not do something like this again. At the height of my withdrawal I was seriously terrified, thought it might never end, and repeatedly cursed my own stupidity.
Moral of the story? There's nothing wrong with being shy and anybody who tells you otherwise is not worth your time.
Stay in school, drugs aren't cool.
