That's what I heard her say almost 35 years ago. That's what she wanted to do but being myself was hard as I was raised quite differently. Further, I discovered that everyone is shy at something at some point in their life.
If your shy then you typically just need to practice developing your coping skills and then your issue is a non-issue. Some people may need psychotherapy. Everyone is different.
While I have no regrets, I am humbled to think I had it in me to do what was asked and there is a time for every season. The things that happen in our youth.
Note: 35 years ago was another time. Disco was still off in the future and I was under 10. Also, I came from an extremely religious family - I mean Ultra as in Religiosity. I have grown and the rest of my story will appear in a forthcoming book.
Things are not always what they seem and truth is stranger than fiction.
Baby let's do it? Clarity solicited? Baby let's do what? I acted responsibly and lived to write about it. No one likes to be rejected and growing up in a hard as nail environment taught me lessons that I'll cherish for my lifetime.
She said yes, I said no and we both grow. Are we right or wrong or just trying to be ourselves?
