Hey @spoon I can massively relate. I’ve been learning about introversion recently (not the same as being shy, but is where some of my own ‘shyness’ comes from) and have found some relief that there’s lots of us that feel this way… although we’re always taught it’s a bad thing to be quiet / reflective! Throughout school, and depending on what job, can creep into work conversations too.
Has something brought you to this conclusion recently? Do you see it as a bad thing yourself? Very curious to continue this convo 😊

Totally agree with you there @spoon it's always so difficult to treat yourself with the same kindness you give other people, I think it's really important to recognise and maybe try to change the way you look at yourself if you can.
It sounds like you're struggling a bit with your self-esteem and that's totally understandable, I think everybody struggles with that from time to time. Are there any things you really like about yourself? Sometimes it can be helpful to focus more on those positive things than just getting caught up in the negatives. Hopefully you'll keep us all updated with how you're doing and are able to keep in mind all the support others have shown you here on the boards.

But I guess the way we think about ourselves is so different when you look at aspects of ourselves through other people.
