You have to put yourself in some uncomfortable positions that your scared of and just tell yourself you can do it. If other people can do it so can you. If you are shy with boys you have to start talking to as many as you can. Others are shy to so don't think your going to embarrass yourself. You will do just fine. Put yourself out their and you will surprise yourself how well you do when you put your mind to something. Good luck I know you can do it. So go do it.
hello,I have the same question as yours,but I talk to many people through English language,so is can increase your confidence,I am from China,I just want to make friend with foreigners and practice my English through talk,may I have you MSN?
Join some after school clubs, so you can make some new friends. Put yourself out there, and be confident in yourself! Compliment other people (everyone loves to get compliments) and smile. Good luck! :)
