I have an absolutely massive breaking news story: I CAN TALK!
Somewhere along the way, I’ve gotten the reputation of some sort of angry, mute, tyrant, which couldn’t be further from the truth. I’ve spent a lot of years trapped in shyness, which had made my relationships either superficial or non existent.
Shyness can do a hell of a lot to ruin a life. It has the ability to make you feel like something less than human.
Talking is often a great liberator, but you better be packing the right words for the hyper-sensitive climate we currently live in.
Anymore, you can’t say anything without sending someone sprawling into a current of tears.
People can be cruel, but don’t let that cruelty turn you into a mute. I’m a rolling testament to what you’ll lose by going silent.
