My whole life I've been a wallflower. Once I became older, I became less about watching the action but being the action one watches from a distance. There are times when my back is no where near the wall. There are times when I am actually the center of attention, whether I like it or not.
For the most part, I still am a wallflower, but I have come out of my shell quite a bit in the passing years, to the point where I sometimes do not even recognize myself. I became aggressive, focused, determined when it came to what I want. I want something (usually it's "someone"), I get it, in some way, shape or form. That's just how it is.
However, I still do not mind being a spectator now and then. You learn so much through observation.
