How do you get rid of shyness?

I'm tired of being shy.

To break free of shyness, go further than usual to speak up in social gatherings, look people in the eye, and allow yourself to be the center of attention for awhile. Catch yourself when you would normally say no to an invitation, and make yourself say yes instead. Be active socially and make it a point to talk to people.

The best way to get over shyness is to force yourself to participate in social events. Facing your fears so to speak. Going to parties or joining a class at the local college would be a great way to talk to other people. A speech class would definitely get you comfortable with public speaking and make you less shy.

While there is no sure cure, here is one suggestion. Think of a subject that your friends are interested in, perhaps a sports team, music artist, computer game, etc.. Learn a lot about the subject, then you will be able to participate in conversations about it and soon will forget your shyness.
