Especially sentimental you become when you think of people and places you once knew but lost.
I am comfortable sharing such information with my close circle because I get assurance and support which I would not get if I kept that information to myself.

It is also information that is too sensitive to share with people I do not
It’s easy to feel like an alien in my body and hate it from time to time, and then suddenly love being in it and feel attractive and comfortable. Its hard to explain to people close to me why I feel the way I feel when I’m uncomfortable because I am perceived as an attractive woman, but I don't always feel attractive.

Feeling jealous is a very natural emotion and can actually be helpful at times, by promoting healthy competition and boosting productivity. But when it exceeds its permissible limits, it has the potential to play havoc in our lives. Jealousy is a very complex emotion and may not always be triggered for obvious reasons. Its causes are more closely related to the way we are brought up and how successful we are in life than anything else. A person who has complete faith in his/her abilities and strengths is less likely to experience this emotion as is the one who has been raised believing that he/she is very special and gifted.

Love and how it is expressed is completely up to the persons involved in the relationship. Also because there are no set rules to love, some people may value the physical attractiveness of a potential partner much more than someone else may. Jonason (2009) found that this can be affected by the persons environment as if the individual is surrounded by attractive people and most of their candidates for a romantic relationship are attractive than they would be more critical for all factors including physical attractiveness. On the flip side, those who are not surrounded by many attractive candidates may ‘settle’ for someone who may not be considered very attractive. Jonason (2009) also found that those who did not see more physically attractive candidates were happier in their relationship.

Background on Shyness Shyness is the feeling of awkwardness, worry, or tension whenever a person is within the company of others. It is different from introversion, as introverts are not necessarily shy, nor do they fear socializing as they are still capable of normal social interaction. They simply find solace in solitude, yet they are also able build connections better than extroverts. (Helgoe, 2002) Unlike introverts, shy people bear the desire to interact with peers, but are unable to do so due to awkwardness or fear they get whenever they approach or are approached by people, (Kazdin, 2000) however stronger forms of shyness can indicate social anxiety or social phobia.

It is therefore very easy to fall prey to losing our morals, values and better judgement just for the sake of ‘fitting in’ or ‘looking cool’. A very valuable life lesson for me, has been to rather experience inter personal relationships for myself, rather than to try and live it through ‘false’ media image’s or persona’s. Media relationships are almost always shown as glossy, fun, exciting, stimulating and incredibly thrilling yet this is not the case in the real world.
