I'm probably one of the few people that is shy with family members, even more so than strangers at times. My mother is having a dinner for her birthday in about a week, and I would rather not come. I feel shy around people my age, and there will be some cousins there that I don't have anything in common with, and that makes me feel shy. The last dinner I was at, I completely froze up and I hardly interacted. I can't really get out of this because my mom will be upset. Ideas?? Thanks.
Falling's not the problem, when I'm falling, I'm at peace. It's only when I hit the ground, it causes only grief.
