being fearful / timid is a magnet?

  • Judging by what I witnessed in middle school and high school I think that might indeed be the case.


    Bullying targets were usually quiet, somewhat timid I guess, and most would definitely have preferred to just mind their own business. This personality type seemed to be incredibly triggering for the bullies for some reason. It seemed personal in the sense that the bullies reacted with genuine anger and hatred.


    Another personality type that got a lot of bullying were the people trying desperately to befriend the cool kids. It often backfired and they ended up as the unwanted sidekick that was largely ignored by the people they were supposedly super good friends with.

  • I still get this from people as an adult, but then when I show them that I am a boss underneath it all and not a pushover, they get mad. :sweatr1:

    People look down on shy people alot, since they think they won't fight back It makes them feel good about themselves when they belittle someone else. I mean tbh, let them get mad I always thought that people who belittle others and try to make them feel less than what they are have low self esteem T___T keep being you

  • I was bullied when I was around 4 to 5 age. It continued for 2 years until and unless I changed my house and my school bus. The only reason I got bullied was that I was a shy kid and I feared people. so yeah sadly true. Though, I never got bullied in my new school lol, instead I was fighting bullies.


    I am shy, introverted and dealing with severe social anxiety. Obviously, my childhood affected me a lot. I stopped trusting people outside of my family.

    dont trust anyone including family too much - sometimes they give suprise as well :blehr:

  • There's nothing bad with being shy, its just sometimes we have to improve our speaking skills n stuff :< I hope u get better at it luv

    maybe because i have lots of bad experience with ppl even at home

    I can really understand you. It's not something we can easily control. 2020 was the year I tried my best to be confident. With close friends, I don't have any problem while speaking. I do have good communication skills with my mother tongue as well as English. Even if I try to act confident I can't stop feeling that I am watched when I go outside, it's difficult for me to normally talk to shop vendors. A simple conversation that a child can do makes my heart rate go up and my breathing low if I am talking to people from the outside world.

    I thought studying online wouldn't affect me that much because duh I don't have my physical self but no I went through many panic attacks during my vivas.
