i feel you. I used to be very shy. i couldn't even talk to 1 person. but i overcame it by going out of my comfort zone. just the other day i sang we are the champions at a public bowling ally because i knocked down all the pins.

I suffer from social anxiety and I gave a speech at my sister's wedding, the worst part was that it was over (in my mind) like in 1 minute. As soon as you approach the podium it's really no big deal. And then after you give your little speech you're done and you can sit down. BING. that's it. and no one cares anyway.

Slowly, talk to more and more people you feel more comfort with whom you feel comfortable. You are worthy. They are not any better or worse than you.
You are their equal. They are as scared as you are. Let it all hang out!

Hey Miss_Tee, thanks for being so open with us. I was totally socially anxious when I was younger, and agree with these lovely comments that things do get better by pushing your comfort zone. I've just finished writing my guide on social anxiety called 'social anxiety inside out' please free to read it, it's free and you can get it on http://socialanxietyinsideout.com

It really does get easier, i'm grateful to say that I am able to speak in front of groups now, when like you, I never ever thought it could be possible! We're all rooting for you.

Drop me an email if you want to chat further ok.

Take care
Steve

P.S. When is the wedding?
