I Wish I Was More Outgoing..

I'm just super shy around people I don't really know..I'm scared to get up in front of people to present something and I feel awkward being partners with someone the teacher picks cause I don't really know what to talk about or I don't want to make myself look like a complete idiot in front of them.  Once I really get to know someone then I feel more comfortable and loosen up and talk more.  It's just really hard to be so shy because, I love making new friends and meeting new people but, it's difficult to do that when you can't "break the ice" or something like that.

Think it's cool we have same b'day! Will you add me?

I share your pain - i always feel i am so different from everyone else, i watch my friends confidently laugh and chat with people they barely know, i envy them :/<br />
i think a large part of it is having little self confidence -do you ever feel you are constantly 'picking' and faults with your self? appearance or personality, i do. i sometimes feel that because i am not 'pretty' or 'popular' i am therefore a waste of space. <br />
All i really want to do is go out to parties with my friends and have a laugh but so many things stop me, 'do i look alright in what i am wearing?' 'will i get left out?' 'what if i can't find my friends?' i wish i could just get over it and be confident! anyone else feel similarly to me?

I am exactly the same way even with new family members but once i getg to know someone i dont stop talking lol
