I have been shy all my life and it's hard when it seems no one understands shyness around you. I had just a few friends going through school, but just a few. I have a wonderful husband and beautiful daughter, but what i'm lacking is real friends. I envy people who have a best friend that they go shopping with and just be silly with all the time. I have aquaintinences, but it seems no one wants to take the time to befriend the shy girl, to see that she is a sweet caring person inside... I work with ladies at work who laugh and cut up with eachother, and go to eachother's houses and do things together, but I have yet to be included... It's painful when I can hear them in their offices laughing and talking and when I walk in, they act like i'm not there. They go to lunch together. How can people be that way? I never exclude people when I am talking with a friend. I hate the fact that I may hurt someone's feelings, so I am extra sweet to people.. My husband says i'm a pushover and too nice. I am so uncomfortable at work with these girls. I just go about my business.. But inside, i feel so invisible and left out. My husband says I should just speak up... I try.. I really really do make myself talk, but it's hard. It doesn't come easy for me to speak my mind. I try to start conversations with people, and when people talk to me,then I talk quite a bit... I just wish people would feel that I am worth making the effort to know me and befriend me.. They'd see that I am a wonderful, caring friend. Then they wouln't ignore me.......
