I'm just wondering if there is a way to get over being shy? It's hard making friends because of my shyness. I mean I do have a lot of friends It's just hard for me to make new friends unless they talk to me first. Soon I'll be graduating and I'll have.my cosmetologists license and I really need better communication skills if I want to be a cosmetologist! Any tips, ideas?
hi, from my own experience when i used to get shy i have tried communicating strangers just because they do not know anything about you, means how you behave,react to different situation and what happens they start talking to, the more you talk the more you gain confidence. And i help you to start, go to any public place like historical place or kind of where you need to know some information so talk to any one you do not know that i want to know about the history of that place, about emperors etc and then after that deviate from the topic just say thanks for your help no body was giving me that information you helped me out, it was nice meeting so we will meet again, then ask for friendship etc,,,, ok i guess this helps you a lot, wish you good luck.
It's something you just have to suck it up and brave it out. I'm terrible with people as well, have very few friends and am a conversation killer. I have been getting better. It's about making the effort, throwing yourself out there making the effort to talk. Eventually, you will get better. Start with little things, even like talking to the cashier at the store, or someone standing in line with you. I actually got better since I began my job as a cashier where I was forced to talk to people. Perhaps you could try something like that, put yourself in places or situations where you have to talk to people. Think of it as practice. You will get better.
omg im the same way!!! but alot worse..but i think the more you talk to complete strangers the better you will get.... like try to go to a public place like an amusment park or someten and talk to random people i think after awhile you will get more comterble and try not to think to much
Wow, I thought I was like the only person! And Thanks!
