Shyness Affect People's Well-being

It is just normal to feel shy sometimes. But once this feeling of shyness persists for a longer time, it can have a debilitating effect on the person.

Extreme shyness can affect the emotional well-being of a person, particularly on men.

Men who are extremely shy would find hard to meet women. They may never have a girlfriend or may never get married.

But the good thing is, extreme shyness among adults can be remedied. 

Start by trying to leave this feeling of shyness behind. When in a social event, just be calm and feel easy. Think that no one there will harm you.

Make it a habit to talk to a lot of people. If you are too shy to do this, start with one person a day, then increase the number slowly until you already feel at ease talking to many people. Don't be afraid to talk to people. Saying “hi” or “hello” would be a good start.

When you already have confidence talking to many people, start going out in public. Invite your friends for a night out or go to any event where you can meet other people. Try to initiate a conversation until you become comfortable with the other people around you. Start joining activities that would allow you to interact with other people. You can enroll in a gym to keep and maintain your body build, you can attend exercise classes, or join a club. 

Avoid being too conscious about yourself. Often times, shyness occurs when you think too much about your flaws. Don’t be negative. Instead, focus on the current situation and the conversation that is going on. 

When in a group, try to be a good listener. Never do all the talking, lest this can give a hint to the other people in the group that you are an authoritative person.

Shy men often have difficulty meeting women. If you happen to be one of these men, don’t worry. There are ways that can help you overcome this feeling. Below are some tips that can help you out.

Start by showing your respect to women. Women will never like you if you don’t know how to respect them.

Always wear a smile. This gives women a feeling that you are friendly and approachable.

While showing your best smile, say “hi” or “hello” to any women you meet. Later, when these women are already familiar with you, engage in a small talk with them. You would never know, this small talk would lead to something else.

If you still don’t know how to talk to the woman you like, practice with a female friend. This can help you earn a little confidence. 

The most important thing that you need to do before meeting a woman is to be prepared. Start the conversation by asking simple questions, like asking the girl how was her day, or complementing her look. Just don’t forget to make eye contact every time you talk. Imagine yourself talking to a friend so you don’t have to feel nervous and awkward.
