is the hardest thing I’ve had to do! Finishing my degree helped but life is still life and the same old anxieties kept creeping back in. The secret to being less shy is realizing that 10 out of 10 people I come in contact with are so worried about how they are coming across and what (if anything) is about to come out of their mouth that they aren’t really paying attention to me. I used to feel like there was this judging spotlight always on me. Then I realized that everyone else felt the same way. If I can make someone else feel a little less intimidated by their own spotlight…..they like me!!!!!! Crazy isn’t it? But that is how it works….
