Do Tell: Could you be More Bold?

It's always important to take inventory of yourself, weigh your good and your bad qualities, and make little changes if need be. While some of us are extroverts, very confident and vocal, others are more reserved, quiet and mellow. No one characteristic is better than the other, but ladies, if you could be more bold in one aspect of your personal life, do tell, what adjustments would you make?

popgoestheworld - I know EXACTLY what you mean. I'm the same way, there are a lot of people who I kind of know who I'd like to reach out to and become better friends with but I'm very shy about that sort of thing. I always feel like they wouldn't want to hang out with me anyways so why bother. It's a bummer!

ms mavericks girl could I be more bold? no dont think so .over the years i have found out that you simply must do what your first mind tells you ,it is always right, unfortunately coming from a single mother who was Half Irish and Half Cherokee, it was hard for me not to voice my opinion, think about it ladies when you do voice your opinion whos going to do something about it? most of the time when you say what you feel someone else wanted to, so be the leader and help your sisters out even going the extra mile and saying it for them....much love

I wish I could learn to stand up for myself more, and not let people walk all over me. The thing is, I'm very fiesty when it comes to my Mom or Hubby, but at work I'm like a timid little sheep. I feel like a broken record with, "Sure, I'll do that! No problem!"

I wish I was more confident about talking to strangers on the phone! I had to call and make a reservation yesterday and as usual I got very nervous before I had to make the call! I have no problem talking on the phone to people I know, so I'm not sure why I get so freaked out about talking on the phone to new people.

I don't think anyone loves rejection, but I feel like I take it more personally than I should. Sometimes I'd like to get to know a person I've just met better, but I don't know how to approach them to get to know them better. Like I don't know how to ask them to hang out, or I'm afraid if I do they'll reject the invite. Is that weird? It seems simple, like something I should know better by now. But I have made so many friends just based on convenience (dorm mates, co-workers) that I'm not so great at the random friend thing. I guess I do have some random friends, but all of them were the ones who pursued the friendship, not me. This is something I'd be hugely happy to fix in my life as I feel like I'm probably missing out on getting to know some great people.

I wish I could be more confident and be able to interact with people. My inability to do so makes it hard to be good company or help people, and I really hate that.

I wish i could be nicer and selfless and not so blunt sometimes. I envy people who are so sweet and gentle. i'm just not like that and i wish i could get a touch of sweetness instead of my bluntness.

I should probably be to need more outspoken with my flatmates; I'm tired of getting screwed up all the time cause I'm too nice, but I'm rubbish at talking..

I do very well in my personal life. My boyfriend allows me to be myself and I am; for good and for bad. But I could definitely be more bold in my business life. I could use some tips on that!
