What are you shy about?

I’m shy about my accent. The minute someone asks “so, where are you from?” I can feel the blush creeping up my neck and I want to be anywhere but there. I don’t know why it makes me shy – maybe its because with one sentence they’ve reminded me that I am a foreigner, an outsider. I quite like the safety of “belonging”.

  2. Im painfully shy of my singing… I know I dont suck, but I dont sing beautifully either… but if I realise that someone is listening or if someone asks me to sing I start croaking like a frog… every time!
