If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Change is a very big thing and not a lot of people like change, I am one of those people but the one thing I would love to change about me is how shy I am. I have always struggled with being shy and I just hate how bad it gets sometimes, there will be times where I’m meeting someone and it just kicks in and I can’t control it. It actually so weird because no one in my family is shy, I’m the only one and my parents are always telling me I need to get over it and I try but it just doesn’t seem to happen that easy. However, I have got better with it and I am not as shy as I used to be and once you get to know me you will see how bubbly I truly am. Part of the reason I got better was because of my friends, being around friends who are always out and about and say whatever comes to their mind, it rubs off on you. Another thing that helped me get over my shyness was my job, working with people and talking to people got me out my comfort zone and made me feel much better. There is some specific things I get shy over and that’s talking in front of a big crowd, ordering by myself, talking to important people, I don’t know why but those three things are the main things I still struggle with. Another thing that helps me get over this, is practicing with people I know and that way I get more experience with talking to more people. My friends are the most supportive people I know, they will introduce me to new people that way I can get over it and slowly but surely my shyness will just slowly fade away and I can be myself in public. Change is always good for you and sometimes it just takes practice. What is something you would change about yourself?

One thought on “Change”
What a great article! Did you know public speaking is generally the number one thing feared by most people? Talking to important people can be intimidating, which is why many people stumble over their words and/or don’t make direct eye contact. A lot of people feel pressure to not make mistakes when they are ordering because they feel rushed, but just take your time and you’ll work through it. Just know you are not alone when it comes to your fears. It seems like you are already overcoming shyness and if that is what you are shooting for, keep it up! Thank you for sharing this. I loved reading about you. (:
