Giving up opportunities for the simple matter of shyness and unwillingness to put yourself out there is not worth it.
I need to stop. Stop the reflection. Stop the regret. Stop the looking back in to the past and regret everything I gave up to be shy and awkward. It’s a very costly, tiring, and sad habit to maintain. It’s the one thing I’ve regretted the most in this lifetime. Being shy. And being too scared to put myself out there.
