This is a brilliant post. I suspect that for most people (probably even for Polly!) social self-confidence is a learned skill. I spent time practicing it in high school, probably at the expense of my schoolwork, but I have no regrets. Social ease and the ability to make friends are invaluable qualities to have personally and probably professionally as well. Most importantly, these qualities contribute to one's happiness and the happiness of others.

Love this post! Thanks for the insight.

i came across this as i was googling for help on social anxiety. i have a problem taling to people, even on the phone. i haven't made any friends in the past 2-3 years, after college. i just don't know how to ... or wat to say.. my shyness is becoming worse and its debilitating to my work... and life.. i can't just consciously be courageous and come out of my shell. i tried that and was stuck in a worse situation. anyways... i admire your sharing of your experiences. if u can offer me any advice, it'll be great!... thanks for the post.. hopefully i'll find a way someday.

Great post! :)

A simple thank you for this post just doesn't seem to be enough. It really brought to light how meaningful and moving common kindness can be among strangers. Since that stranger is always someone else's friend/brother/sister/parent/love. Thank you again! :)

Wow! I totally understand how you felt. I didn't understand sarcasm either and took it for meaness. I'm a high school junior now and still a quiet kid on the outside, but on the inside I love joking around and singing randomly. I thought I was slow in learning, but its really how my parents raised me. My parents don't understand sarcasm. Now, I know I'm not alone. Thanks so much.

Wow! So insightful, thank you for sharing. And isn't it great that Polly's name is... Polly? It's delightfulness almost completely summarizes the extroverted persona that you have grown into. The lack of guardedness is evident in your written word.
