Top Ten Reasons to Come Out of Your Shell

Skullkid755
Here's what I've seen on this site. People who aren't social outside of it. I don't hate anti-social people, but I don't like anti-sociality. I was for a while but later in 7th grade I changed. There are a good amount of reasons you should at least try to make real life friends, 10 of them will be in the original version of this list. If anything might apply to you just no I'm trying to help, not trying to insult.

The Top Ten

1 You'll be happier

Thank you for writing this list, Skullkid755.

You won't believe that a few people on this website bullied me and writing negative replies to my opinions, and adding certain characters and such to certain lists because of me or what I have said. Talk about disrespecting opinions, man. It's like these peeps have no life, I swear to god.

The reason I kept myself anonymous (and never have an account) is because no one will find me and I don't have to worry about spamming or call-outs. I'm not a bad person, I'm just a good one with a good heart. I do have anxiety unlike most other people on this site, so keeping myself anonymous here has been wise.

I have considered leaving this TopTens website and never coming back in the future because of these lowlife scum who hate me or what I say. I think I would be much happier if I do.

My shyness used to be debilitating. But I realised if I didn't change, I wasn't going to get anywhere in life. My shyness is now more at a level that I'm comfortable with and I am in fact a happier person. It's fair to say I'll never be an extrovert. I've never wanted to be anyway. - Britgirl

After you are able to talk to people easily, you'll find that positively interacting with others physically will provide you with multiple benefits that lead up to happiness. Those are self-confidence, fun, lower difficulties, and more. - Skullkid755

This list is kinda confusing because I always thought coming out of your shell meant to be your true self and not hide behind a fake persona but this list says it means not being anti-social - Lucasbck36

2 Your self-confidence will increase

When you feel well liked by people who know the real you, and you know they aren't a pedophile sitting behind a computer screen waiting for you to give them personal information, you'll feel more appreciated. This means you'll like yourself more. That is what an increase in self-confidence is. - Skullkid755

Good reason. - EliHbk

HA! I am a very non social person, and my self confidence is MASSIVE! - LordDovahkiin

3 Friends can help you in tough times

If someone cares about you, they'll give you help when you truly need it and they can give it. A friend can prevent you from taking your own life. Or a friend can be the edge you hold onto so that you don't fall away. - Skullkid755

Unfortunately, I don't have any friends and I am bullied because I like Anime and Cartoons... Help... - MissRWBY202

You thought! - EliHbk

4 You'll have more fun

Do I want to listen to Iron Maiden, or do I want to have a good conversation? Iron Maiden is ear porn, but I'll go with having a conversation. I don't know why but I just will. Be on this website all day, or at a birthday party of a friend of mine all day? Sorry my fellow toptenners, but the latter. - Skullkid755

This list is accurate - RoseCandyMusic

No, I won't. I like to keep to myself, and my small circle of friends. - LordDovahkiin

Technically you've already come out of your shell, just to a small circle of friends instead of the entire population. - Skullkid755

5 Some stuff will be easier

While deciding between parties for fun or homework so you don't fail your grade is a tough choice, friends can still help you out with education. Like them sending you pictures of their homework since you don't know how to do it at the time or you're doing it at the last minute, and realizing how long it would take if you don't copy. Also, they can help you figure out a tricky math problem. And if you can't remember what happened in the book your class is reading, there's a good chance you'd have a friend who can summarize it for you. - Skullkid755

6 It'll be good for others too

If you befriend someone who is also introverted, both of you benefit greatly.
People who wanted to befriend you but were hesitant since they weren't sure if you'd want the friendship to be mutual have now had their wishes fulfilled.
People who advise you to quit hiding will be proud of you. - Skullkid755

7 You can make memories you'll look back on fondly

You'll remember hanging out with your friends fondly. You won't remember shying away from people at social events fondly. - Skullkid755

Nah. - LordDovahkiin

8 To find your future husband/wife

The one person you spend the rest of your life with will likely start off as a friend. And then things will evolve far past the friend-zone if you stay with them. - Skullkid755

Yeah that's not gonna happen. - Randomator

This item means you'll meet them. Then after that things will evolve between you and them. - Skullkid755

I'm in highschool, I'm not gonna find PandaWife just yet. - ProPanda

Unless you decide you don't want to get married. - LordDovahkiin

9 Success in the future.

Having friends will help you be able to work with others better. Having friends will open up your mind to thoughts they have, leading to you finding a passion that you can stick with, which can lead to a successful career. Having friends will also help you be confident enough to be successful at something where a big ego is a big advantage. - Skullkid755

10 You'll have a more open mind.

If you're highly prejudice against a certain group, giving someone from said group a chance will possibly make you realize that your prejudice was wrong. And you'll change for the better. - Skullkid755

No seriously, this is one of the best items. - ProPanda

This is one of the best lists I've seen - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Life will be better

You are right. I think that my life would be much better if I wasn't on here. I shouldn't be on this site so much because so many users turn down on my opinions. I think it is time for me to leave this website altogether, and only check this site to see the newest lists once in a while. Any advice would be very appreciated.

Do what makes you happy. Rather you be happy outside of here than unhappy here. - Skullkid755
