Journal Article — “Let Me Introduce Myself”: My Struggle with Shyness and Conformity — by Sherry Wilson
After much reflection on my issues of shyness and conformity, I know that they can be resolved, but for me it will take time. It will take some time for me to become more comfortable in social situations, to gain courage to share my thoughts with classmates, and to realize that being different is worth defending. I look forward to the day that I can stand in front of a group of people and give a presentation without wondering if I can make it through without a shaky voice and unsteady hand. I think time and practice in these situations are the keys to my issue.
