A Chronic Case of Shyness

A Chronic Case of Shyness

There was once a small boy who suffered from a chronic case of shyness. He desperately yearned to be understood, belong, embraced and accepted by others. His olive complexion, dark hair and European features attracted him much unwanted, unwarranted and unfavourable attention.

Sadly this combined with his inept communication and interpersonal skills, ensured him a life and existence of much confusion, ridicule and complexity. Merely by his presence alone, by just being an inhabitant of his environment, it greatly influenced the risk of an unprovoked situation becoming ugly or hostile.

Understandably and undeniably the karmic dynamics that interplayed in this timid boy’s world was very much of a vulnerable, fragile and turbulent nature. Beknown to him he also possessed an endearing and positive quality. This often contributed to his dilemma; this he would eventually identify with in his adult years.

This being his passive, non-aggressive and sincere personality. Most interestingly, this also undermined his self-confidence and his ability to defend himself physically. If this hadn’t been the case, then his pathway and journey through life may have been even more torturous, chaotic and dysfunctional. Not just for himself, but for all those he encountered.

As he could’ve easily drifted aimlessly and destructively from one chaotic situation to another. As a result he could’ve become aggressive and used violence as a tool for bullying, control and manipulation. Thankfully, the role of the perpetrator was never his calling in life, but to experience many higher learning opportunities instead. This too includes understanding the real value, appreciation and comprehension of compassion.

Most incredibly and most miraculously that small, shy and timid boy was me.
