Shyness is a common reaction when being exposed to unfamiliar situations or new people. When you are shy, you may have feelings of apprehension or awkwardness when you are around others, and will often find it uncomfortable when you need to talk to people. This can lessen, though, as you become more familiar with your surroundings and peers.
When shyness becomes debilitating, and impacts heavily on your life and life choices, you may be suffering from a form of anxiety known as social anxiety, or social phobia.
Do people say you are quiet? Do you ever feel ignored and overlooked by others?
If you want a successful life then you need to know how to build relationships. Social anxiety prevents that and you know it.
