Hi there, ive always been a shy person but since ive been in high school its got worse, i can never seem to talk to people or continue a conversation with people i dont know. Im really chatty to people i know well but i want to be able to talk to people i dont know. Ive been on YouTube to try find some answers but it doesnt work for me. Help!!!
I totally understand cause i'm exactly the same. My family recently moved to a new country so I barely even speak the language which doesn't help much lol! But it's actually been good for me. One thing I've learned is not to worry what people think of me. Everyone makes mistakes when they're trying something new or different and people will actually admire you for stepping out of your comfort zone. People who don't...well...
Something i've also learned is to not think about myself and how i'm coming across. That's just gonna freak u out. Think about the other person. believe me, they'll like u all the more;-).
Anyway, i'm nowhere near as bold as i wish i was but with lots of practise i'm sure we'll make it!
