Whenever you're being too self-conscious, try switching what you are thinking about yourself for a positive, then think on the positives in other people you're dealing with, instead of concentrating on self.
My advice is to go out side your comfort zone and make lots of friends. I used to be extremely shy to the point where people thought I was a mute, but I forced myself into positions where I had to be loud and confident. I would advise joining a program like Girl Scouts or going to a 4H center. Do speaking presentations at school, or be in a play. Surround yourself with crazy friends that you love. The only way to over come shyness is to do things outside your comfort zone where you are required to be confident, so you get used to being confident. It will get easier over time; trust me.
