I’m so quiet and shy at work that I think people are beginning to hate me Watch
Just started a new job (first job since graduating) and I’m the youngest and obviously the most inexperienced. I find it intimidating being around older colleagues who are experienced and so good at what they do. Im normally a loud person amongst friends but for some reason I can’t bring myself to come out of my shell at work. I really think that people avoid being near me/socialising with me just because I’m so quiet. It’s frustrating because that’s not really who I am. I’ve been here a while now (8 months) but I still don’t know why I’m so quiet. I thought I would start to get more comfortable but I still feel shy. My colleagues are all very sociable so it can be very hard. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to be known as the quiet one forever but it’s just so hard.
