Ahead of her 40th birthday next week, Beyoncé reflects on the lessons she learned during each decade of her life in her Harper’s Bazaar September cover story. The “Crazy in Love” singer shares that she was a shy child in her early years, and that her quiet early years affected her later career.
“The first decade of my life was dedicated to dreaming. Because I was an introvert, I didn’t speak very much as a child. I spent a lot of time in my head building my imagination. I am now grateful for those shy years of silence. Being shy taught me empathy and gave me the ability to connect and relate to people. I’m no longer shy, but I’m not sure I would dream as big as I dream today if it were not for those awkward years in my head.”
