    That red shirt looks SO good on you!
    I don’t really know how I react amongst people, do I stay quiet or not? But one person I know will hardly say anything at all for fear she’ll be laughed at. Even when it comes to things she knows very well, nothing. She’s an introvert, but wants to be an extrovert, just to fit in. People have told her that it’s OK not to be one, but she just wants to “fit in” as she said…

      Thank you Jea! I understand where that person is coming from. I think we are taught that introverts are less cool and not great to be and it’s hard to break away from that. They probably have a few experiences trapped in their minds of moments they tried to be themselves and were mocked or ignored etc.
      People fit in when they are with the right people. Hopefully they can realise that and stop trying.

    I’m an ambivert but I guess I lean toward introvert. I don’t socialize too much but some people do make me feel intimidated at times. I just approach them by just being myself and trying to take interest in their lives & listening to what they have to say. Being a good listener and understanding their point of view allows them to step down which makes us feel comfortable. It used to feel hard for me at first but I’m def practicing my social skills and being yourself def makes a huge diff! You look amazing btw girl ❤️

      Thank you lovely. I agree being yourself and listening is so important. When you are yourself, you probably sound more relaxed and at ease, rather than trying to adapt and figure out what to say. x
