Here are three ways to put an end to feeling shy or self-conscious:
1. The most important thing you can do is to realize that your shyness hides your greatest gift - your big, loving heart. It has made you a very sensitive person, but this has caused you to attack yourself emotionally.
2. At some point you stopped loving yourself - something must have caused you to doubt yourself. Try to identify this situation and understand that this was a mistake. Work to build your self-esteem.
3. Your shyness means that you are meant to be a leader in your relationship and in your life - somebody who can inspire others with your heart and help them find more love for themselves. Start to lead by answering the calls for help that you see around you. Your shyness and self-consciousness will then fall away.
