How To Overcome Shyness And Unleash Your Awesomeness: Personal Experience To Help You
This article looks into ways to help people break free from shyness. The advice is based from personal experience and I hope it will provide inspiration to many people.
As a child and well into my teenage years, I was a person who was often referred to as being very shy. Even though this description was true, I always longed to be as confident and outgoing as everybody else.
The problem was that I did not know how to gain this self-esteem and found socializing very difficult.
There were many reasons as to why I was a shy person.
I also grew up having to cope with a slight stammering problem which as you can imagine did not help my own confidence levels and only added to what was already the difficult task of mixing with other people.
I did eventually manage to achieve fluency but only after understanding that I was overthinking myself and eventually learning another language.
I have to say that I always preferred to be by myself and was what many people saw as a loner. When I am on my own nobody can hurt me and I was also in no danger of stuttering.
The weird aspect was that inside I was a very confident person who was desperate to show the world, the real Greg Stargell.
How To Overcome Shyness And Unleash Your Awesomeness: Had To Ask Myself Real Questions
Being shy made it difficult for me to form relationships with women and made my work life also more of a choir.
At the age of around twenty-one I decided to attempt to overcome my shyness once and for all. I had to understand the real reasons behind why I was shy and to deal with each one in turn. I asked myself many questions such as:

This was because I had a fear of not being accepted or liked.
They may hurt me by being aggressive towards me or by taunting me about my speech etc.
This was me being paranoid, so I decided that if I don’t try, I won’t know.
This was because I did not feel that I had a lot to say and believed people would think I was boring. I decided just to try my best and to see what happens.

This was because I thought that they would only tell me to go away and that they would not be interested in me. Yet again, if I do not try, how will I know.
These are just three of many questions I asked myself and you can probably see a pattern forming.
I was just somebody who was scared to try, a fear of failure in a way. It was also a fear of being rejected and disliked.
I have now come to realize that out of ten people I meet, three of four of them might not like me, but that means there are six who will.
Life is to short to be constantly paranoid and stressed. I have to battle against my shyness and break free of it once and for all.
I now have more confidence than I ever have had. I still have periods where I become shy but these are becoming less and less as time goes by.
