I'm now 24, and for the past 4 to five years, I've visited forums like this, but never participated. I've always tried to learn from other peoples issues, without addressing my own. I'm ready to get over my internal fears, and begin communicating with others, rather than just watching life pass me by. As I've grown older, I'm far more social than I have ever been. I'm ready to continue this path, by supporting others and pushing to do more in my own life as well.
