If you were so painfully shy growing up that you wet your pants rather than raise your hand and tell the teacher in front of everyone that you needed to use the bathroom, then #GrowingUpShy is the hashtag for you—and anyone fascinated by what a big ol' weirdo you were. People are reminiscing about how horrible their childhoods were, which is like 90% of the internet, but this time they're specifically focusing on how hard it was to be a shy kid, in a cruel world that demands you talk, walk around, and occasionally be the center of attention. Shudder.
