I've been shy since I could remember also an introvert. What could be the cause. When I try to speak out I get this gut feeling that keeps pulling me back. I've felt like an outcast as a kid because I wasn't the pretty skinny one. It's hard getting people to like you or to find friends anymore so I'm just more about myself and it's not a big deal to me anymore. My parent makes me feel like a loser because I don't talk to people or don't have good social skills. Its just I'm tired of dealing f with people who don't care.

My cause of being shy in the past (as a child) was due to self doubt or insecurity.
When someone feels sure of themselves or fully confident they break their own barrier of shyness and put themselves out there.
It was a difficult thing for me to do, and something that took years to work on but I did it.
I spent too much time in my life caring about what others think or self doubting myself.
I realized I will no longer allow myself to be a victim to fear of rejection, I was missing out on meeting great people.
Being shy only crippled me... it held me back from enjoying the full extent of experiences and mingling.
Of course, my shyness would wear off if I knew the person rather well.
But initially, I always wanted to be that person that was social that could speak to others with no problem.
You have to develop your self esteem before you can feel secure enough to put yourself out there.
It takes time, dedication and work but it is all worth it in the end.0
