While they were growing up, a young kid was enormously shy.
It did not help that many of the other kids attacked this “weakness” and distanced themselves from them.
But despite this shyness, the kid always respected others and what they did; even if it turned out bad for them.
Valuing this time alone to themselves naturally resulted in them knowing themself intimately:
What did they truly like?
What did they truly despise?
What did they truly fear?
What were their real strengths?
As the individual in the kid’s age group started to mature, interestingly enough, what was once childlike confidence and contentment turned into anxiety and hesitation.
At this point, the kid did not need to reach out to anyone…
...since everyone was going to them for advice.
