Tips To Combat Shyness

  • Ask help from people you trust like your family and friends. Practice socializing by maintaining eye contact during conversations.
  • Know your insecurities. Is it because your fat or you find yourself ugly? Try to think positive and don’t feel ashamed of yourself.
  • Believe that no one is perfect in this world. Even a famous person has failures and insecurities.
  • Identify your talents and skills. Focus on that talent of yours and have a goal to improve it. Express yourself by drawing, singing, or dancing.
  • Be grateful of what you have. If you lack that self confidence, then learn to appreciate what you have in life. Eliminate the feeling of dissatisfaction.
  • Start a conversation by yourself first. Don’t wait for others to approach you. A simple compliment or smile when meeting new people is a great start.
  • Practice speech in front of the mirror. When conversing with someone, don’t make it too scripted. Go on with the flow. Sharing of ideas and personal experiences are always the best.
  • Find a group which matches your interest. Talking to a group with the same interest will allow you to open up your thoughts and feelings.
  • If you suddenly get nervous during a conversation, then make appropriate excuses by saying you need to go the bathroom or you need to get something. Give yourself time to calm down and organize your thoughts for a few minutes before you return back for a conversation.
  • Always be yourself. Don’t act as if you’re somebody else. Don’t be afraid to show your uniqueness to others. Your personality is a bridge in making new friends.
