I want to let everyone who is shy know that you need to stop beating yourself up and stop feeling like a failure. The truth of the matter is that shy individuals have not been given much support or the proper guidance to help themselves. I am a nurse, health educator, shyness coach. and the author of Don't Call Me Shy which contains a step-by-step method to help those who are shy. I have studied shyness all my life and have spoken to hundreds of shy children and adults and have come to know that unless a shy individual is helped to change the way they think of themselves they will not be able to change behavior. I was a shy child and I knew what I should be doing in a social situation but because I thought of myself as shy I felt like a shy person trying to act social. Once I changed my beliefs about myself - and stopped identifying myself as shy - slowly but surely I was able to change my behavior. I am here to help you...let me know what you are going through.
