I hang out with a group of people from time to time that view me as being shy and quiet. I never believe them. I knew I was an outgoing person and I can strike a conversation with someone when I notice we have stuff in common, but with this group we just have different interests, so their conversations don't really interest me, which in turn, awakens my silence. I wonder who made up the rule that being quiet in a group of people meant that you were a shy person? I wonder how many people that were dubbed as shy, are not and are just told they are by those around them. I wonder if I have ever called someone shy just because I didn't understand their silence. This will now be something I will be mulling over the next week 😂😊 #MentalHealth #Thoughtsofastrokesurvivor #Friends #curiosity
