8 Simple Steps To Overcome Shyness

Are you a shy person? Shyness is simply a feeling of nervousness or awkwardness when around other people. No matter who you are, each of us have our times when we feel shy. For example, when you're new on your first day at work, when you're at a party and everyone is a complete stranger, when you're with someone you are attracted to, when you're asked to speak in front of a huge audience, etc. When we're caught in a state of shyness, most of us will take on certain actions to "protect" ourselves. Some of us become reclusive. Some of us turn into introverts. And some of us try to evade the situation altogether. While these actions make you feel "safe", doing them aren't exactly constructive. For example, you can hide from an awkward situation, but you gain nothing out of it except for self-perceived safety. While you can keep turning down social invitations and avoid strangers, at the end of the day you'll still be the same person. You'll not be able to grow as a person nor build new social connections.
