shyness is just conceitedness minus confidence

#1 Post by Fluminator » Sun Mar 25, 2018 6:35 am

If you’re self conscious you believe that people are judgind you and then that makes you uncomfortable. If you believe people are paying attention to you just because you are there, believe that they are when there is NO evidence of that, is to be a self absorbed dummy.

movies and books always show this trait as some sort of innocent characteristic, When in reality you’re probabyl just a prick, and is evidence of how damaging this effects modern life.
I mean, it’s different obv when people are literally judging you all the time because you’re superb, abhorrent, ugly, beautiful in some way. That’s not the issue.
But being a wallflower just because you decided to is just being a poop. I demand vindication.

Good god, I guess the same goes for paranoia. Interesting that both of these are pretty common symptoms of mental illness or autism right? It’s almost as if they’re not by flaming choice.

He's judging people negatively for believing they're being judged negatively. It should go in the paradox section.

Fluminator, you are overlooking the human soul, many people are socially awkward and feel more comfortable being on the side, away from public attention even if it isn't judgemental.

Don't think the OP really knows what being "shy" is or isn't.
Then again...since he's trolling who knows
