Tired of being shy and having lack of confidence.
Find a Conversation

How can I become more confident and not care what others think about me? I have always been shy but its getting ridiculous that I feel like I can't even be myself. I turn beat red at any sign of attention and its frustrating. I'm a sophmore in college and everytime I do a class presentation I shake like a leaf and my voice cracks so horribly. My last presentation was the worst I almost started crying and had to apologize to the class. It's not only that, but I have a hard time talking with people. I can't make conversation and in fact avoid talking to people because I don't know how to keep a conversation going or think I'll say something stupid so I just don't talk. The only person I feel completely myself around is my fiance. No matter how I am..stupid, silly, cranky, whatever..he doesn't judge me and loves me for me. I feel and see that...and feel safest to say and be who I am around him the most. I guess I am always afraid of being judged and just want to be accepted by everyone. I try not to judge people and always try to accept people for who they are no matter what. I have always been the shy, quiet, "goody goody" and I feel like I can't even talk to my family sometimes because what if I say something I feel and they don't like or expect it from me. I want to learn how to be more social...how to be myself around everyone..and not worry about what others think. I want to be more confident and sociable.
