7 Powerful Ways to Overcome Shyness for Girls Who Are Struggling


Being a naturally shy person can be kind of hard to go about social situations as well as making new friends, so here’s a few tips on how you can instantly overcome your shyness!

1. Put Yourself out There Regularly

A lot of the time shy girls tend to avoid ‘putting themselves out there’ because it’s not something they’re comfortable with and hence means stepping outside of their comfort zone. But when you put yourself out there, you’re letting everyone around you truly get to know who you are and this should make you feel heaps more confident and better overall!

2. Engage in Social Situations

You don’t have to naturally be a social butterfly to have fun in social situations! Next time you’re at a party, meeting new people or simply surrounded by a group of people (who you may or may not know), make sure you make an effort to engage with those around you and you’ll soon have more fun than watching it all pass you by!

3. Don’t Be Afraid of Judgement

Many girls who struggle with shyness are afraid that if they be themselves completely and let others see this, they will be judged and/or not liked. But remember that not every ‘judgement’ you receive will be a negative one, many people will have a great first impression of you if you show that you’re being your genuine, true and authentic self!

4. Allow Others to See Your Beauty

Every single girl is super beautiful and unique, it’s just that shy girls often miss out on opportunities to showcase this because they’re…well…shy! You’re such an amazing person and you deserve for every single person around you to know that too! All you have to do is be yourself an allow others to warm to you and see how beautiful you are!

5. Get Yourself out and about

Shy girls may tend to avoid getting out and about when possible because of the simple fact that they will be around other people, which may not make them feel comfortable. But if you continue to avoid this, you’re missing out on so many great opportunities to meet new people, make potential friends, have fun and gain confidence that you could totally benefit from!

6. Use Current Friends to Branch out

It doesn’t always come easy for shy girls to make new friends, so one great tip is to use your current friends to meet and engage with some of their friends! It’s an easy but great way to branch out, and the fact that you both have a mutual friend means you have something in common and can use this to start the conversation! It’s much easier than trying to talk to someone who you don’t know anything about and nothing in common with!

7. Fake It ’til You Make It

Believe it or not we’re not all extroverts at heart! So many of us are shy, keep to ourselves and are naturally more on the introverted side. So, if you wish to be more of an extrovert but are finding it hard to go about this, fake it ’til you make it, girl! This totally words as no one will know you’re faking it, plus it’s kind of fun to pretend that we’re naturally really sociable (even if we’re not…shhh!).
