Why I'm so shy

Report as

you lack self confidence, you are afraid of what people around you might say or do and you hide yourself from the potential of being embarrassed or ridiculed. It could be because it's just the way you are, or it could be also because of past or present experiences that are affecting how you view yourself. For me, I had very low self esteem/confidence partly because that was my personality, and partly because my mother was unkind and abusive all throughout my childhood. She belittled me and made me feel horrible about myself and whatever natural tendencies I had to be shy were only compounded by the way she treated me.

I encourage you to love on yourself and find something to be proud of about yourself. Low self-esteem can affect you in profound ways throughout your life. If I could go back in time, I would have tried harder to accept myself and stop caring/obsessing so much about what others thought about me. I was bullied sometimes as a kid, and of course there was the abuse at home, it all weighs down on a person. I still at almost age 30 struggle with shyness, but I've come a long way. And one day doesn't have to be a far off dream. Your "one day" can be now, a little at a time. Baby steps so that you get used to being bolder around other people. Best wishes to you. And know that no matter what you think about yourself or what you think the world thinks of you, it's often not the truth. Jesus loves you more than you will ever know.

You are probably an introvert or just lack self confidence. I am very shy too. Force yourself out of your comfort zone and you'll start to become more comfortable around people

Maybe you're afraid of something, of being judged, of whether or not you'll be liked. Try to let go of those negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones; remind yourself that you're a beautiful person, and that the people who matter are the ones who like you for who you are :) Over time, you'll learn to come out of your shell.
