        Making Friends
Yes, I was wondering on how to overcome shyness and how to make friends? Some people seems to have the gift for it and others like me don't. What are your suggestions, Thanks?

Dear Bighugs,

I've gone through this same problem. I was shy and not real outgoing. It wasn't until i went on a missiosn trip that i really changed. Now i'm not saying that it will be the same for you. That's just how it was for me. Now being shy isn't really a bad thing, but it is usually something many peopel like you want to overcome. Well you just have to leave your comfort zone. Your comfort zone is the area in which you feel like expressing yourself or speaking outwardly. In this case leaving your comfort zone would be like saying 'hey' to someone you dont' usually say hey to. Or going introduce yoruself to a new person you might meet at your school or church. Just be nice and friendly to people, but don't be too quiet. People bond easier when they speak. Now, on the othe rhand (i doubt this is the issue but it might be), if you're rejected from a group of people because of something you repeatidley to over and over again and you can see that people are annoyed by that, it's always a good idea to stop it. But to me it sounds like you're just a shy person you just wants to haev some good close friends. Well, if this doesn't help, ask for God's help. He can do anything ya know. Talk to you're youth pastor if you would like to. They can always give good advice (even though goign to him would be hard and you'd have to come out of your comfort zone to do so), but i hope this info helps. And remember live right and always keep God first in your life, because He's all tha really matters !!!
