I'm 28, never got over my shyness. I'm a mom and this is a big problem for me now. I know people will say stop being and socialize but it's not easy. I really struggle with this!
The straw today with myself is.... We were at a birthday party yesterday with my 6yr old. The kids were in the activity room and all the adults are sitting at a foyer. After 10 mins I got so uncomfortable and went to my car. I Sst there because I feel I'd b embarrassed if I went back in. I later went in to get dd at the end time.
How do you cope?
I try to be more social but it's hard. I have one friend, who is trying to break me from that. I hate it!
I was a shy child then teen years wasn't shy and built confidence .. After college n having dd I was a stay at home mom. I felt like a recluse! We moved to a remote area in another state. So I never really saw or interacted with people unless I was at a store. It's gotten worse now. I'm even shy near family I grew up with!
I thing I'm happy about is that dd doesn't see I'm shy! She asks me how come I'm never shy to talk to people !! It's usually small talk.

Maybe sign up to volunteer at the school or something, where you have a task to focus on and any socialization will have to do with school / kids and things you are familiar and comfortable with. I'm not particularly good with a group of new people. I usually just sit back and observe to get the lay of the land before jumping into conversation.
