What is the cure for shyness?

I'm tired of not being a part of everything.


Answer by  MLEvans (27)

The cure for shyness is simply to "just do it". Eventually after you keep putting yourself to the test and you keep challenging yourself things will get easier. It may take days or even years to overcome completely. However, the more you put yourself to the test, the better you will become.

I am not sure there is an actual cure but to overcome being shy, it requires a concentrated effort on that person's part to be part of things and push through the discomfort. I suggest getting a good counselor and perhaps even being evaluated for treatment of social anxiety. Sometimes the case is biochemincal.

First you should understand it is common and curable. It often helps to have a partner to help you volunteer for something. You will probably have fun.

Shyness is also known as social anxiety disorder. It's real and there is no cure. Read 'Good-by to Shy' by L. Lowndes. There are tips to help such as fake till you make it, ask questions people LOVE talking about themselves. It is really helpful.
