Shyness is a narcissistic-based fear. It causes a person to focus solely on themselves; their thoughts and feelings. Not once does shyness allow a person think about how others feel or what they might want.
I encourage people to exploit the narcissistic aspect of shyness to overcome the fear. Think about the benefits; what you can get from the situation if you conquer that fear, even if just once. Focus on how good you would feel for breaking free of your inhibitions – that cage you carry around. How good you would feel for having a good conversation with someone, making a new friend, bringing a smile to someone’s face or brightening their day. Use that egocentric side of shyness to make the day better for yourself and others.
