You do a sport or become very good in something, so good that you do it infront of people or with people (as a team). You will have more confidence and be around people who like the same sports atleast. Slowly you will get better, and do it naturally. Also look healthier and better.

What you have to do is get over that fear. I used to be afraid of asking a girl out cause i was afraid of being rejected. I asked 3 girls out that i knew i had no chance with and they all said no (shocker) so get over your fear and talk away. Maybe be the class clown and goof up till ur comfortable of talking to people and would be ok being made fun of. Just know if they make fun of you it will only last a day or 2. Making a friend can last a lifetime.
Don't let your fears get the best of you. You just need to summon up all the courage you have and talk to someone. Maybe ask a person what their favourite type of music is, and you could bond over that. Or start with TV shows, food, anything. Hardly anyone will judge you for what you like. I was having the same problem on my first day of school in a new town and country. I felt almost like I shouldn't have been there, but I rounded up what little courage I had and talked to one girl who sat next to me in homeroom, and it turns out that we both like My Little Pony. Every Monday morning we discuss the newest episode. And thanks to talking to her, I got more courage and I started talking to others and now I have 10 good friends who like me for who I am, not because I'm a Canadian or because I looked cute in what I was wearing that day. None of them judged me one bit. All you need to do is talk to that one person. Even if the first person you talk to doesn't have much in common with you doesn't mean nobody will.

What do people have to make fun of? Even if they do make fun of you, if they have it in them, then you don't want them as a friend. There are good people out there, you just have to find out who they are. People are more prone to making fun of you if your a loner without friends who isn't social. Let that be your inspiration. You don't live to please anyone but yourself, don't worry what they think, as long as your happy.
