How do you overcome shyness/self-consciousness?

I’m an extremely shy person and i don’t have the guts to do anything because i’m too self-conscious about myself. A few of my friends suggested that i shouldn’t worry too much about it….but it really isn’t that easy…..


  1. Maybe you have to work on your self.
    What i mean is, if you are not sure on how you look that would make you shy when you have to go to a party, or a club. So you can start by looking at fashion magazines to find the clothes you like and combine, and try combining your clothes and using more accesories, try all of that at home, see your self in the mirror, till you find the way you feel better.
    If you are shy cause dont know what to talk about, you can read a little more, watch movies, read and see tv news so you know always subject that are IN.
    If you are not satisfied at work or at school, maybe you need to improve it, find out some other issues you want to learn and take some courses.
    Finally, if you dont really have any of those problems, maybe you dont have to worry to much to live a low profile life, while you are satisfied, it must be enougth to have a plenty life.

  2. Yous hould justy go out in front of a whole b unch of people and be like Wah and just start dancing. You wont be so self concious anymore

  3. Research has shown that a form of psychotherapy that is effective for several anxiety disorders, particularly panic disorder and social phobia, is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). It has two components. The cognitive component helps people change thinking patterns that keep them from overcoming their fears. A person with social phobia might be helped to overcome the belief that others are continually watching and harshly judging him or her. The behavioral component of CBT seeks to change people’s reactions to anxiety-provoking situations. A key element of this component is exposure, in which people confront the things they fear in an sensitive manner. This is done with support and guidance when the therapist feels the patient is ready and only with the permission of the patient and at the pace the patient wishes.
    Cognitive-behavior therapy for social phobia also includes anxiety management training, such as teaching people techniques such as deep breathing to control their levels of anxiety.
