The Buddy System to Overcoming Shyness


The other day I posted a question about shyness on a popular website.  The question was, “How did you overcome your shyness?”  There were many excellent answers. 

One of the answers that was shared by many was this.  Many people were inspired to end their shyness from a buddy.  From someone who was their personal cheerleader and supporter.  

You probably have this person already in your life and you do not know it.  Is there someone in your life right now that encourages you and supports you?  Is there someone in your life right now that invites you to do things with them?  Is there someone in your life right now that encourages you to come out of your shell?  This is your buddy supporter and personal cheerleader.  This is the person that is your private helper. 

Listen to this person.  Go places with them.  They are your key to overcoming your shyness.  They are on your side.  They like you.  Your shyness is not a problem to them.  You are working on overcoming your shyness just by being with this person.  Isn’t that amazing?  Keep going.  You are on the way to overcoming your shyness.

Tip 3. Appearance

Good looking and fashionable people are the ones who get more attention from the audience. Being shy can also be a product of not so being confident on how you look in front of people. To enhance your image, you may want to consider these points relative to your appearance:• Clean body that comes with clothes. Be sure that you are clean from head to toe. Hygiene and proper grooming are important aspects in image enhancement. Putting on that clean apparel from top to bottom can give you an edge in any occasions. Making sure that your body and what you’re wearing are neat will help you feel secure about yourself and your appearance.

• Proper color coordination. Be careful on what you wear as this can be a mirror of your personality. Combination of colors should be perfect. Neck ties should be matched with your inner shirt; belts and shoes should have the same color.

• Put on the right make up. Woman should always be conscious about her make up. Any color will do for fair skinned while light shades of purple and pink goes with dark skinned women. Choosing the right lipstick should also be a priority.

• Clean cut hair. You wouldn’t want to look like a rock star over a corporate meeting. Make sure that your hair is well trimmed and that it doesn’t cover your face.
