Fellow introverts, or those who are close to individuals who are shy/quiet/etc...
How do you deal with the timidness? Or how do those you know deal with it?
I've been like this my entire life, and I'm realizing that I'm pretty lonely, as it's difficult for me to socialize..(My 4 year relationship with my boyfriend recently ended and realize that he was my only close friend)..
I enjoy being with people, and talking with them, but it's hard for me to get over that initial 'fear' to get to that point.
I'm getting really frustrated with myself and how self conscious I am.
I want to get out there and make friends and network with other artists and people in general, but I'm struggling. How do you deal with feeling like this? Can someone really change themselves to be more outgoing?
