Am I addicted to my own shyness?
As many of you regular QOTW readers know, I'm a shy person. Fortunately, I frequently manage to overcome my shyness for short (yet most of the time, long enough) periods of time. Often when I'm in unfamiliar surroundings or about to meet someone and I'm feeling nervous, I find that the nervousness seems to play havoc with my adrenaline production. I've learned over the years to not focus on my nervousness but to instead, enjoy the adrenaline rush I end up getting. In practice, I still feel nervous, but usually, once I settle in, the nervousness evaporates pretty quickly and I'm left with an adrenaline high. Also, I find that once my shyness dissipates, I feel somewhat triumphant about it, and that just adds to the high.

Some people take up extreme sports to get their adrenaline rush. Me? I'll just stick to doing battle with my shyness and winning!!!
