Years ago, I decided to learn how to overcome shyness since I had issues conversing with people.
Agreed, it’s not easy to learn how to talk to people you don’t know, but I struggled to even gel with people I was acquainted with.
I had a fear of talking to people and that made me anxious about meeting anyone.
For many people, shyness might not sound like a huge problem, but for me, it was. It wasn’t only the fear of public speaking that held me back, but I would struggle to find words while talking to anyone.
Fortunately, I was comfortable at least with my family, but when it came to talking to people other than my family, my knees would turn to jelly.
Now, I have no clue what that is called in medical terms, but I decided to help myself, without the support of a psychologist.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with consulting a psychologist, but I was determined to find out how to overcome shyness on my own. Having said that, I don’t think I could have made it without the support of my family and friends, so it’s very important to have a strong social support.
