I Hate Being Shy , Help !

I attend College and I am 19 years old. In class I have notice that you need to do a lot of group work and talking aloud in class about work . I am a very self-conscious person. I notice I have a problem speaking up to my classmates . I get nervous , shortness of breath , blush. I don't know how I can break that habit . I want to communicate with others but My shyness stops me .

For starters you need to shut off your self-conscious mind and just act. I was you and I still am in a way.. I would always think about what other people would think like it actually mattered. The only way to speak up is to speak up. It's a fact that I had to face and once you do it the first time.. it just get's easier and easier believe me
