Abide by the Vibe: Visible

Abide by the Vibe: Your everyday “vibe” is created on your own terms. Every action and thought will affect this “vibe” constantly. Will you choose to be fueled by a happy “vibe” or will you destroy yourself with a negative one?

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

I’ll admit I am an oddball in many ways. When it comes to “attention,” I have always been an extremely shy and bashful person who preferred not being seen or heard.

The center of attention has always made me a nervous wreck. What will people think of me? Will I do something to embarrass myself? Am I going to get judged?

As a result, I’ve relied heavily on avoiding attention whenever I could …

I cope with social anxiety on an everyday basis. It has been like this for me my entire life. Growing up, I was always that “quiet guy,” the one who would barely utter even a squeak. When I would try to talk, I often mumbled my words (a horrible habit of mine even to this day.)

Over the years, I will freely admit it is lonely trying to be hidden all the time. I want attention. NO. I crave it.

Whether through triumphs or struggles, I want people to notice me. I will force myself to become visible to others, whether my anxiety likes it or not.

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

    There are probably more people out there who feel as you do than you think, I am one of them, everyone is scared of being embarrassed whether they admit it or not, and we all need to be acknowledged in some way…
