Surprise yourself

Socialising, now, for many people this is just natural, they go to the pub or out to the shops with friends and socialise, talk. It seems so natural and so easy.

However, for many people socialising almost feels like one of the hardest things to do in life. As you come together, meet up with a group of people whatever the situation, your ability to socialise vanishes, as you almost feel like your lips has been sewn together; you can imagine and think of the words in your mind however, they just do not seem to come out. As you start to think over what you are trying to say, you feel the doubt that starts to seep in. Then that is it, you are scared and begin to fear what you are trying to say and you sit there in silence lost in your mind.

A lot of people will not understand your shyness and think of you as ignorant.

This is not true though. You are such a great person though, someone who has a whole world of ideas locked up in your mind, things that are fun, entertaining and intellectual just waiting to be unlocked.

It is the hardest thing to do though to let those words leave your mouth, to remove all control over them, but as Eleanor Roosevelt said ‘Do one thing every day that scares you’. From this, you may surprise yourself, the first step is always the hardest, but once complete I believe that it is one of the most rewarding.
