How to delete your shyness?
29 Apr 12
You can't "delete" your shyness I think. I remember that I used to be extremely shy and self-conscious- but that was because I cared way too much about what other people thought. Once you learn to stop caring about what they think (to the extent in which they really affect the way you talk and communicate) that shyness will suddenly go away. I was shy and self-conscious for a number of years, however as I grew more comfortable will myself, mentally, plus changing my appearance helped my self confidence quite a bit. Over time it just faded away. Good luck!

If you want to remove your shyness, the only way is to not to be shy? Get it? Haha. What i mean is that you have to face it with yourself 100 percent. Show them that you are nm shy, well smiling is one way. :) . I am also a shy type guy but now it lessens. No worries when just in class. Your classmates are just your audience. You have been seeing them almost everyday, don't be shy with them cause they are not shy with you. If you can face them even just with a 10 percent of shyness in yourself, i would believe that your shyness will be remove soon. However, maybe you just keep that 10 percent. Having shyness depicts a person a nice one, sometimes. Haha.

I think it is difficult to delete shyness. When I was a child, I was shy to speak in front of many people. When you delete the shyness once, you may give yourself a gift as encourage. Than after you try many times, you will be more brave. Good luck.

I'm also very shy person...until I got an experience to work in a fast food restaurant. I think at that time, my shyness lessen. It made me confident a little. I met lots of people, good and bad ones. Coz in a fast food, I have to entertain the customers. I've also been scolded by them including my coworkers and managers. That made me strong, I guess. But still, I'm shy. There's still shyness from within. But, at least, not very shy..haha

Aww, the problem is that it's part of your personality. You can pretend to be someone your not, that has worked for me in the past. I'm pretty shy too - but I work in customer service so I am used to being happy, friendly, and chatty around new people. The best thing for a shy person to do is -- firstly, remind yourself why you are awesome --- are you funny? have a good personality? a hard worker? Find things you like about yourself and let that build into confidence. Confidence in your abilities, in your speech, etc. If you are so shy you aren't used to meeting new people or being chatty, get a job in customer service where you are constantly greeting and small-talking with people. If you can't acquire some kind of self confidence, PRETEND as though you have some - walk with confidence, talk with confidence - I have heard once that if you pretend long enough, sooner or later it will become reality. Just some ideas! Happy MyLotting!
