HI pill ,How come your shy?
Look at the reasons of your shyness.
Everyone is shy at sometime in their life .
Are you shy because you lack in communication skills?
Are you shy , because you are afraid people will judge you the wrong way?
Are you shy , because you don't trust people?
The list goes on , try writing down some of the reasons why you feel that you are shy .Then sit down ,and read over them.Then try and think of ways that you can overcome your shyness,most of the people you meet and deal with daily are shy ,we are all actors in a big movie ,all you have to do is aim to be the star.
Go out today or tomorrow and act the way that you wish you could be and after a while it will come naturally.

I'm afraid of displeasing people. And when i was a child, there was this man who liked to tease me. He just scared me instead. I'm also very sensitive to people intruding in my personal space. Growing up, I had adults in my life who were inappropriately invasive. So, guess trusting people is not the first thing I do... I check them out first to see if they are going to scare me or cross my boundaries.

Great suggestions, to just go out and act they way you would wish, then it becomes natural. Thanks!

One a week is also something I feel I can do. Dance is my thing this week.

Thank you all for responding!

Pill,
I was just like you extremely shy growing up. When I got my job it changed all that. I became more comfortable with my coworkers and I was given the self confidence that I was needing.

Pill: you sound allot like how I was around my 7-8 years. I am not sure how old you are, but eventually after I faced things in a communications class I no longer have this fear. luckly it is something that isnt bad to work threw (the shyness) as for the other problem with people in your space, I have that too. I like to do things myself and rarley if ever call upon others for help or anything. i am not sure how to fix this as i haven't done so yet. this problem has also effected my relationships w/ friends and mates as i don't like people to be close or go by certian boundaries i have set.
