100-word Wednesday: Shy

I’m outgoing.

I’m loud.

The life of the party.

I’m a people person. When I need to be.

When I don’t;  I’m quiet. Introverted. Withdrawn. Deep.  I prefer small groups to big crowds. I’d rather read than go to a bar. New people scare me. So do meetings.

Octavia Butler once said, “shyness is shit.” I’ve conquered that condition. Each day, I wear my armor and go to war with the extroverts and Type A freaks. That’s the only way to survive in my profession. Thankfully, on the weekends I can vacation in my anti-social world with a select few.
