Don't Be Shy
Many guys and girls from GAG say they are shy around the opposite sex. The vast majority of shy people I've met wish they could be more outgoing and confident about themselves. I don't know how to do a lot of things. I have problems of course and things I don't like about myself, but of the 99 problems I have, being shy isn't one.
Here are a few tips about getting rid of that hold you back shyness. Hopefully, this helps some people to come out of their shell's. I was shy, when I was a teen. Thankfully, I was able to overcome it later in my life. I found out the most important thing in being less shy is to have more confidence in yourself. So, let's get started with how you can be more confident and less shy.
Find Something You Are Good At.
It could be anything from baking, to drawing, to a sport, even at a career. Thriving or doing anything that you are ranked near the top at creates pride in someone. Pride which is closely tied to confidence, which will help you overcome shyness. You will probably even be complimented some because of your excellent talent along the way, and compliments never hurt anyones self-esteem.
Overcoming Insecurities About Our Looks.
The majority of women and girls do not like the way they look. Some things in physical appearance we sadly just can't change, but somethings we can change. Do whatever you can to improve your physical appearance. This relates to shyness because it makes you again makes you feel pride and gives you confidence in some way about your looks.

What Can I Do To Improve?
Get a haircut or color, wear something you feel pretty in, curl your hair, do your make-up, do your nails, get a tan, bleach your teeth, put nice jewlery on, and fix the things that you don't like about your appearance. If you like the way you look you are naturally going to be much less shy. So put a little more effort into your appearance. It may sound shallow, but it's true you will feel better. Nobody is going to look perfect so dont worry just try your best.
Overcoming Insecurities About Our Bodies.
Sadly the media portrays females today to look a way which is not realistic. You don't need a perfect body to have a good body image. When you like your body as it is, right now, you boost your body image. And your self-esteem too. First, accept your body. Find things to like about it. Take good care of your body. When you like your body, it's easier to treat it right.
How Can I improve It?
Eat healthy foods. Learn what foods are good for you, and how much is the right amount. Eating right helps you look your best. It gives you the energy you need and gets rid of extra weight. It boosts your body image too. Also, get good some good sleep. Learn how much sleep you need for your age. Get to bed on time. This can help your metabolism rate which helps you in losing weight.
Be active every day. I know trust me it sucks, but is worth it in the end. Your body needs to move to be strong, fit, and healthy. You can be active by playing a sport. You can run, jog, work out, do yoga, swim, or dance. Pick activities you like. Enjoy the fun you can have with it. This could also become something you are very good at to improve confidence and get rid of shyness as I mentioned above.
