Is shyness a lifetime sentence?

I’m a 27 year old man. I can’t look into people’s eyes because I’m extremely shy. Most people think that I don’t like them and even people who first liked me and also I liked will start thinking that I hate them and sometimes even start to get angry toward me or start to feel bitter about me. It is really a heart aching process. I have made few friends in my life and never have made any girlfriend. Shyness is almost same as serving a lifetime sentence. I’m in despair. If you would like give me some advice.

  1. It seems like a lifetime sentence — the good news is that you have fully realized your plight at age 27. Perhaps you feel 27 years “old” — this is normal. The reality is that you are still young with over 2 thirds of your life to live.

    How do you want to spend the rest of your life (the equivalent of 2 times the years already spent)? Can you imagine being happy, connected to others, and free (especially of what other people think)?

    Now, the best advice is to stay focused on what you want, not what has been in the past.

    What are some ways for you to feel better about yourself? Explore the entire topic of self-esteem — what it is and how to get more.

    Keep working on yourself even when you feel that no one cares. While each step may not have immediate payback, in the long run you will be rewarded for being the best person you can be.

    Feel alone? …. consider helping others.

    One day you will look back from a happy place and realize that you are now Shy and Free.
