Lizzet’s Big worked hard to empower her potential and gave her the support she needed to overcome her social anxiety
Big Madalyn and Little Lizzet have been together for 9 years. When they first met, Lizzet was incredibly shy — to the point that she would have mild panic attacks over presenting at school or talking to strangers. Madalyn was incredibly understanding of this and endured many outings where she was the only one talking.
Now, Madalyn says Lizzet barely stops talking when they’re together. “It took about two years for Lizzet to become that outgoing, but I was patient and determined to create a space for Lizzet to feel comfortable with her own thoughts and opinions and be able to share them,” said Madalyn
Many Bigs get discouraged after a year or two of spending time with a Little who remains quiet, but Madalyn was never frustrated by this and stuck with Lizzet, helping her realize her potential and become the talkative kid Madalyn knew she could be. Madalyn and Lizzet know they are going to be friends forever.
