How can I get rid of my shyness. My whole life I've been a shy person. When I met new people as a child I would always hide behind my parents and cover my face. I dont have any in person friends at all. I like talking to people but I cant find a way to talk to them. I want to make friends and be outgoing but something in me stops me. I cant even order at a drive through for fast food restaurants or order in person. I also find it uncomfortable going shopping because I'm scared people will judge me for what I buy. In grocery stores or the mall, anywhere really. In gym class I would always not like participating or playing sports because I was scared people would judge me. After gym days I would go to my room to cry because sometimes the gym teacher would call me out or kids would talk about me. I remember playing volleyball and the Ball flew towards me yet I didnt move at all. I didnt flinch or anything. I just let the ball hit me. When I moved to the U.S. I didn't like saying "here" for roll call because I had an accent and the kids would laugh at me. I always get asked to speak louder because I speak too quiet. In a vacation this summer I overheard my cousin say "its like talking with a wall" meaning me. Meaning I am like a wall. I want to make friends and talk to people but im like too scared. Idk why. Idk what this is, what causes it, or how to fix it. I mean I can talk to people online in videogames. I actually have quite a lot of friends online. I can talk to them and be myself but in person I cant.
