“People that can’t blush are worthless.” –Ernest Hemingway, The Garden of Eden
I like to say that I am a naturally shy person.
No one believes it, but I say it anyway.
All through elementary school and high school, I was the quietest kid around. In college, I decided to get over it, so, after a while, I did.
But I’ll always be proud of the way I used to be.
And I will always be her.
Shyness, embarrassment, quietness—to me, it means that I am still a little girl.
Somewhere inside myself, I still care what people think of me.
Because I want to be their friend.
And, I think, that is good.
