Our expert says:
shyness at its most extreme can be very debilitating for people, and makes it difficult to socialise. It can sometimes be helpful to spend time with people you do feel comfortable with as this will begin to build your confidence.
You could also think about getting hold of a self-help book on shyness or social anxiety. Try your local bookstore or on the net at www.exclusivebooks.com or www.kalahari.net
Alternatively you might want to consider booking an appointment to see a Clinical Psychologist who will assess where the problems lie for you, and they can offer you strategies to deal with your shyness.
Hope this is helpful. It best to do something about building your confidence now. What you will begin to see is that there are lots of positive things about yourself that will help you to feel less shy, you need to re-discover these things.
