									Tips In Overcoming Shyness

Every year, the number of people that have having a hard time overcoming
shyness is increasing. If you think that you are at risk of developing
social phobia or you know somebody who is already suffering from extreme
shyness that affects his or her personal and social life, the best way to
address the problem is to determine if there is really a "problem".

In this case, the problem is the fear of the person in dealing with
others. Experts say that the earlier the shyness is diagnosed is the best
treatment for this condition. This is because the problem could be
addressed in its "infancy" stage so more options would be available for
the patient.

The first thing that one can do if he or she suspects that he or she
might have developed this fear in dealing with people is to check the
symptoms of people who are diagnosed with it. Some of the common symptoms
extreme shyness or diffidence include over anxiety or nervousness during
the conversations and other social functions. Other manifestations of the
condition might also include nausea, dizziness, vomiting, muscular
tensions, motion sickness, excessive sweating, heavy breathing,
palpitations or increased heart rate and uncontrolled shaking or
trembling of the person's body.

If these symptoms happen to a person during any social gathering or
conversation, then there is a great need for him or her to seek
professional help as soon as possible. The diagnosis of diffidence is
usually made by the psychologist who will offer advices. He or she will
also assess the patient by asking about him or her about the fear of
people, how it started, and the extent or the severity of the fear which
may affects his or her life.

Going to a psychiatrist is one of the basic treatments in overcoming
shyness because he or she will give the person another perspective on the
condition and will also help him or her handle the condition especially
if it has reached phobic proportions. If you suspect that too much
shyness affects your life in general, the following are just some of the
tips that you can follow in order to overcome this:

- gain enough knowledge. This is the best thing that you can do in order
to overcome shyness. If you are educated about shyness, you will know
that embarrassment—which is the major reason that triggers shyness—
doesn’t happen all the time. And if these will, you will know what to do
since you have already taken time off to know more about this occurrence.
Experts say that the greater understanding there is when it comes to
shyness and about all the things that usually take place during social
functions, he or she will get hold of the fear that grips his or her
emotions.

- know what actually scares you. This is the basic thing that people who
have extreme shyness should do because if they will know what it is that
they fear in dealing with others, they can address these issues on
themselves with a help of a professional such as a psychologist.
