Being Yourself

What is the one thing that keeps you from being yourself around others?

I am a really good friend one on one, but my shyness turns me into a turtle when I am in a group of people.
I wish I wasn't so shy.

hugs, train

I'm with you trainlady. I'm okay one-on-one, but in a group I'm always terrified of saying something that will be misunderstood or taken the wrong way. I suffer from foot-in-mouth disease and I do hate to offend anyone.

Oh goodness, what can I say.. I used to be very shy, inner person, even around a small group..
My beloved husband worked hard for me to over come my shyness and low self eesteem.
Since his death, something has happened to me, and I do believe it is called the RED Hat society group.
I have over come so much of my low self esteem.. to the point I am about to do something that I thought I would never never do.. but am getting exciting about doing it..
for it will show me where I 've been to how I am blossoming and over coming that low self esteem person.

I wish I could put my finger on one thing that has done it, but I can't.. I think being in the red hat society has helped me watch other woman, as a whole, for I never really done that due to being so inner. I've learned some are like me, shy, low self esteem, and others I don't know why they don't have it..
I've learned they go thru some of the same problems I have and over came it.. which means so can I..

During this time of my husband's death I have had to lean on GOD even more so, and I know HE put these woman in my life to teach me when they are not even aware they are.
some acts as crazy and allow thier inner child to come out and it's ok. so can I.. and be ok..
I'm learning I'm a ok person, and i'm making it without holding on to no body but GOD and myself.. No one is really there but my girlfriends but even times they fail me..
I have to do it..

so please my word to you, is move on with life, watch others, hold onto GOD's hand, and go experience life before it's to late, for the low self esteem is robbing you of fun, fellowship with other ladies, and doing things that you reaLly want to do..
Don't allow it,, for you got something to offer to the world.. so go out and jump in, what do you have to lose.. NOTHING.. yea, you might make a fool out of yourself, so what, OR what if you didnt' and it waS successful, but you will never know until you try it..
