Should you stay or should you go?

New experiences can be very tough.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always been slightly afraid of meeting strangers. I'm constantly worried that I wouldn't know how to introduce myself or I'd run out of things to say.


People who know me say that they can't imagine that I'm like that, especially since I used to work in a field that required me to meet and interact with a lot of people on a daily basis.
