Being Shy Can Cause Others to Overlook You


I wish it wasn’t true. I know it’s true though. Sometimes even cats get overlooked because we’re shy. In my case, I can be fast and I know how to hide. But in my girl’s case, people just like to overlook her because she’s not outgoing enough for them. I don’t understand that attitude.

Being shy shouldn’t cause this reaction. I know we don’t always want to be around others, but does that mean we ask to be overlooked? No, it doesn’t. I know I’m quiet. I still have things to say and write about. I have much to contribute when given a chance with people I feel comfortable with.

Being shy doesn’t mean we don’t know anything and aren’t capable. If anything it’s the quiet ones who know more and are more capable than the ones who just boast. We don’t feel the need to boast about what we know and can do. We just do and go on with our lives quietly.

So, the next time you feel inclined to overlook someone shy, stop and realize they may not feel comfortable sharing with you because they don’t know you very well. It will take time for us to open up. It can’t be done with the snap of your fingers. But we are worth the time and trouble as my girl can say about me.
