SHY “Alex would you please be quiet for one second?” asked my mom. It’s funny that she always says this to me, because I got my talkative side from her. She talks more than I do, most of the time at least. Everyone else thinks that I am just shy, but that is not the case. If you really know me, you know that I am very outgoing. I have a ton of friends, that support me. My friends know my strengths and my weaknesses, and they could tell you that being shy is not one of my weaknesses. Because I am not comfortable talking in front of a bunch of people that I don’t know; people assume that I am shy; but in fact I have been interviewed live on the news before. Yes, sometimes I can be shy, but it’s usually around people that I don’t know. I am not one of those people that can just hit it off with a stranger. It is very difficult to talk to a stranger in general, because I am not just going to tell them my life story. I don’t think I could tell them my life story, even if I absolutely had to do it. Only the people closest to me know my life story, and I would like to keep it that way. I can’t just tell some random person in the grocery store my life story. If I started telling people my life story, I wouldn’t be the same person that I am today. I don’t trust strangers enough to keep my life story to their selves, and I definitely don’t want them knowing all of my business. I don’t even tell people that I know all of my business, so why would I tell someone that I don’t know?…
