How do you tell a story about yourself when you are a very private person? I’m so used to listening to other people talk about themselves.
I grew up an army brat. So I was forced to make new friends every few years and leave the old ones behind. Being a painfully shy child, it was pure torture for me. Being one of seven it helped somewhat to hang with my siblings…We kind of ruled the neighborhood…Always organizing games like red rover, kickball, dodgeball, roofball…you know all the games that are extinct. Which btw, I think is so sad.
Anyway, that was so long ago. I am 56 years young now and I do believe all that torture of having to make new friends so often helped me to be a more open person when it comes to accepting different personalities…Since I was exposed to so many varieties during my formative years.
I love meeting new people now! Even better I love ‘connecting’ with new people.
