You get out of life what you put in to it. That being said, if you put little effort in how you act and speak every day, please don’t be surprised when you find you’re having a hard time in life. Being shy is a natural thing, but being perpetually shy is not. I’m not talking awkward or anxious or even hyperventilation, I’m talking avoidance of eye contact, mumbling, and fidgeting. These are unattractive characteristics to have. You need to get over whatever it is that’s stopping you from being you in a social situation. And if you do eventually feel comfortable around people, expand that comfort zone! Start with a small group of friends, then a few more, then a few more… C’mon, I actually have faith in you this time. You can do this. Get vocal, get active, and get out there and show someone.
Your Shyness Needs To Die.
And I’ll propose a challenge: If this article is disagreeable to you shy types who like to maintain a private “bubble” of insecurity, LET ME KNOW. Find your voice in the comments. Because not once in my life have I been abused verbally by shy people. Want to know why? They’re SHY.
