There is absolutely nothing wrong with you. I'm incredibly shy too. It's just something you have to learn to be okay with, and after you start accepting it, it starts to go away. Learn to work with it, and learn your limits. Little by little try putting yourself in some situations that require you to hold up conversation. It'll slowly get better.
I have it. It is not entertaining. Socializing, starting conversations and praying and asking God to take away shyness will do good.
It is a process. Let us keep improving!
you simply have the shy attitude which often includes sarcasm and that sort of joke but please, in reality you can't believe that, definitely not. Being shy can be as attractive as other features. Youll be fine.
Nooo. There is nothing wrong with you.
Socializing does get easier eventually.
Nothing wrong with you. It takes all kinds to make the world go 'round.
Nothing wrong with controlling who you want to interact with -- but there is a documented mental state called "Avoidant personality disorder". Since you ask about it, a visit to a counselor would be a good step. You'd be in good company, it's common enough that it has its own ICD-10 diagnosis code, F60.6
Shyness is mental so is being assertive - but it is not a disease or illness.
If it is in limits it is essential. If it exceeds limits we can control it. It is not illness. It may be an impact of the way we are nourished.
Shyness is a defense mechanism. If you weren't shy you would have the courage to go after girls, only to find out that they will turn you down, and humiliated you to the point were you would want to go home, drink every night, and never want to speak to another woman again.
A lot of it is a lack of confidence
If your shyness keeps you from socializing with others, then possibly. You may need to talk to someone.
I was shy all through school. Sucked big time I admit
