Shy and terrified of people. “She is gonna think I’m pathetic.” She will think my opinion is worthless. (Kind of like this blog)

It’s all in your mind I think. The fact is most people enjoy talking about themselves so that is a good starting point to overcome shyness. Consider these examples:

I like your blue hair. You see colored hair everywhere these days.
You tired of this rain yet? It’s been raining here for weeks.
Did that tattoo hurt? You already know it did.
Think Obama can fix this economy? – Pry them for their political views.
You seen that new Star Trek movie? Label yourself a Nerd right away.

Exercise these 5 questions at your local Wal-Mart and make new friends.
Hey, wait… What the heck’s wrong with being shy anyways?
