How does one overcome self-consciousness?

I am extremely self conscious and I feel it is interfering with my social life, as well as many other things. How do I overcome this?


  1. It comes from self-importance, IMHO. When you stop caring what others think of you and accept yourself for who and what you have chosen to be, chances are your self-consciousness will go away. (when you accept yourself for yourself, others will do the same)

  2. know that everyone is self conscious, & also know that most people are self involved: thinking so much about themselves & their impression on others that they aren’t that concerned with you. Once you realize & accept that I think you’ll find yourself more relaxed.
    Growth, aging & awareness all come with time, but this also worked for me.
