How to Start Talking to Strangers with Ease Even If You’re Shy

Shyness stems from the fear of making mistakes or being mocked at by others in public. The people who are timid often tend to forget the fact that making mistakes is the first journey towards perfection. Without socializing with others our life will not attain fulfillment.

You will tend to fritter away your life because of your fear of getting rejected by the people surrounding you. To gain confidence doesn’t essentially mean to lose your self-esteem. You can always work on your communication skill or appearance or the ability to manage people to gain the respect of even people whom you bump into for the first time.

The key factors to success are to reduce your anxiety and to improve your innate skills. How can you do it? Let us discuss something about how to initiate a talk with strangers without anxiety even if you are a timid person.

Strengthen your bond with yourself

As I said earlier, basically, you are shy because you not self-assured. You fear yourself. If something goes wrong and my attempt to impress others falls flat what will happen? This kind of questions rules over you, and the result is the lack of guts to express yourself.

If we go further deep into this problem, we will come to know the exact cause of this situation. You might have attempted previously, and it might have been a failure. Your parents might have been a bit tough with you and would have asked you to keep quiet whenever you made attempts to express yourself.

This might have created a deep impact on you that is holding you back whenever you want to make attempts to break out of your shell and talk to others openly. Erase every negative impression about you in your mind. Believe strongly that there are many hidden talents in you. You have to realize and make use of those powers.


Come out of the comfort zone

You will stick to things that give ultimate pleasure till the time you are in your comfort zone. Immediately when you are out of it, life sucks. The comfort zone includes old friends, your family members, the virtues you have acquired in your childhood Etc. Along with it, lies buried deep inside, your bad habits that you have acquired till now.

Break open that comfort zone that is pampering you and spoiling you further. From tomorrow onwards when you go out for a morning walk, look at the strangers’ eyes you meet on the streets. Talk to them, exchange your views with them. This way you can improve your self-confidence. Smiling at a stranger gives pleasure to you and the stranger equally.


Acquire the art of squabbling with strangers

Once you have practiced the above two steps, slowly start trying out the third step. Pick up an argument or quibble with the strangers politely. Express your non-acceptance of their opinion without splitting hairs with them. ¬†Instead, make use of the nicest words to convince them. Make them accept your opinion with soft and lovely words. Don’t get frustrated very soon and make the situation go out of your hands. Tell honestly what you feel, but in a way, they will accept you completely.
