two possbile reasons why some people are shy: 1 they have nothing to say OR 2 they're afraid they are going to be judged or disliked (rejected) I was really shy for ages and ages, but then i got over it a bit. how did you overcome it?

I had lack of confidence brought on by Low Self Esteem and it was ruining my life, as you mentioned I was afraid of making a fool of myself, didnt like the way I acted and thought people laughed about me behind my back. Then I was introduced to Hypnoterapy against my will at first, but after only a couple of session of listenin to a CD set I bought from a hypnotist who was recommended by a friend I was feeling better about myself and within a month my friends and work colleagues noticed the difference - and for the better they all said. If anyone is interested I have a website http://www.jack-badger.com where I explain some of the things I have been through during the course of my life and promote the products of the Hypnotist who helped me, my way of paying him back

thanks for the helpful advice, did you feel anything on the transition stage? do you see any difference before and after by your own views? and how old were you when you had this rehab? hoping for your response, thanks again

I'm shy I guess because I'm afraid what others would think of me and my confidence is kinda low. I am yet to overcome my shyness.

i also have a discussion regarding this, as for me, i also haven't overcame them and looking for ways to. you had a good response and was thinking of trying them if available. reasons for my shyness might be both of your options.

i think i would consider myself to the second reason which is afraid to be judged or dislike. I also grew up with low self esteem but i manage to cope with it as i grew older and realize everything. Reading books such as positive thinking really helps as you would get some ideas and learn through someone experience and how they cope with it.
