20 GIFs To Explain What Being Shy Is Really Like

I’m a shy girl. I’ve been shy my entire life and I’ve also spent my entire life hearing about how shy I am from pretty much everyone I’ve ever known (I even won Most Shy in high school). Being shy is really not my favorite quality about myself, but at the same time, I can’t really help it. Some people don’t seem to understand that being shy isn’t a choice for me – it’s just how I am and trying to be more outgoing is genuinely difficult! So get off me, okay?

Life can be hard when you’re shy and quiet. If you’re the same way as me, you’ll definitely be able to relate to these 20 GIFs about what being shy is really like. One day maybe you’ll be able to be less shy, but until then, just enjoy the fact that you’re not alone:

    When you are in a group and people make jokes like: “Stop talking, I can’t stand you talking all the time”. It makes you get even more quiet and embarrassed.

  7. avatar Alicia says:

    YEESSSSSS … that is exactly how i felt like each time…it is really horrible to be born like this and you try and try your best to be like everyone else but it doesn’t work. Most of the times I have accepted that i may not be the life of the “party” but that doesn’t mean i don’t have a reason to attend the “party”
    fav gif was the last one

  11. avatar Gorgeous Ty says:

    Omg is is soooo me! it sucks big time to be shy

  12. avatar Mitsie says:

    So so so true. Shyness is a part of me, which I think is so overblown. Shyness is nice once in a while – definitely the boyfriend-parent introduction, lol, good excuse. But, it’s probably not the nicest traits to have (i.e. the interview introduction). So, just throw it out the window and try opening myself up is something I could go for, but this gave me a good laugh.
