From the Facebook post little known facts about Josh Case Sr:
8 - I am actually quite introverted and quiet or shy.
Some people will not believe this, especially my work friends. I only act confident and outgoing because my role(s) require it. I am not afraid of public speaking, but I much prefer to do my tasks by myself than work in groups. I also prefer to listen rather than speak (some will call that an outright lie), but I am nervous in silent situations so I will often speak just to break the silence.
Once I am comfortable with someone or in a certain environment, I will seem very extroverted ... but it's a struggle every time I do it! I am forcing myself to go against my nature and engage in conversations or lead groups of people.
That's why this is perfect to be shared in a "little known facts" list ... because other than my immediate family and a few really close friends, probably no one would EVER know this.
Song Of The Day:
There are many tie ins to the song for this post. "Invisible" by Taylor Swift is a quiet, wallflower kind of song. I'm not ashamed to admit that I often feel invisible, but I also know that I own the solution for that. I need to force myself to not be invisible. That said, I think true invisibility would be the best superpower (if I were able to pick one that would be it!) I think that's why I try to ask so many questions of other people. While on my mission, I found that asking people to talk about themselves makes me feel good. I can pick and choose things to connect with them on and I feel less invisible then.
