Scared Shy

Shyness is an awkwardness inside, that stems from our lack of confidence or our self-doubts… basically our paralyzing fears, which hold us back from life in so many ways.  The good news is WE CAN OVERCOME OUR FEARS!  We can change our perceptions, and in turn, our reality, with mindful practice, self-awareness, self-affirmations, and consciously thinking through our fears so we realize they are either irrational or, if they are rational, they are certainly not as catastrophic as we imagine them to be.  We need to take social risks in order to fully participate in life and embrace its beauty.  When all is said and done, the worst that can happen is we start back at “square one” again, no worse than before, but possibly better!!

About Lisa Pearlman

I AM: a creatively inspired freelance Writer and iphoneographer/visual artist - Social Media Content Creator/Curator - animal rights activist - Voice for the Voiceless. I also identify as a "HSP", (empath or highly sensitive person). I feel like a modern day "Catcher in the Rye," on a mission to save the world, one sentient being at a time. But first I must turn inward, to tune into pure awareness without interference from the mind's thoughts. Connecting with Source at this transcendent level of consciousness, I am free to co-create my reality, one mindfully inspired moment at a time. I earned a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from UMASS-Amherst. My llchosen career path was in human services, helping adults recover from addiction and/or mental illness and reintegrate into society. I worked as a counselor/case manager in a residential mental health setting as well as in correctional facilities. I hope the content I create and/or share online (and in the real world) inspires others to help co-create a kinder gentler world. By spreading awareness of injustices and educating the public through shared content, we build rapport and develop empathy, identifying and promoting shared values like Peace, Love, Compassion, Kindness, and Tolerance. My other passions include Writing, Reading, Photography/iphoneography, learning, self-improvement, Animals, Spirituality, mindfulness, Meditation, contemplation, Philosophy, problem-solving, listening to Music, HipHop, Internet Radio & blogging. I believe LOVE has the power to heal all suffering. I am forever a work in progress.
