What a great site this is! I’ve just found it and I’m already starting to think differently about my shyness. I’m 30 years old and have been trying for years to overcome shyness. Although I initially get motivated by something e.g. a new self help book, I never seem to follow through and take the risks necessary to make a difference. I seem oblivious to the fact that time is slipping by and I’m a non-participant in life. It’s hard to believe sometimes that there are any other shy people out there, I feel so isolated. How can I motivate myself consistently enough to make a real difference in my life, to become shy and free?
