Don’t imagine things first before doing or before going anywhere since you are shy and want to stop it. It is best to stop imaging anything at all and do things just as you see them and take things too, the way you see it. I want you to bear one thing in mind, you see in this life that we are living what will happen will happen and what will be will be. Sometimes it way happen according to how we imagine it and sometimes it may not. So to avoid being shy and disappointed stop all imagination.
Don’t think that people hate you or that nobody likes you. Because people like you more than you think and also love to be close to you and have a conversation with you. So why taking yourself for granted and having negative imaginations about yourself.
