This is driving me crazy.
So I wrote the sentence:
I was so sure that I am shy.
Meaning I am no longer sure that I am a shy person.
Is this acceptable?
I've tried variation of this to try to get the same meaning:
I was so sure that I was shy. -this doesn't sound right to me. This makes it sound like I am talking about a past event in which I was shy. I am trying to talk about me now in the present time.
I am not sure if I am shy anymore. This works but it so long and I wanted to write a short, concise sentence. This sentence also seems to lean to the idea that I am inclined to think that I am not shy anymore. The first sentence I wrote seems to allow the idea that I still believe I am shy.
So yes, this has been bothering me for a while now.
