What should I do to break out?

I can't give a speech in public.

I blank out at times when trying to express myself.

Also rapid heartbeat...

I feel more relaxed when alone.

Better start warming up now. Associate and mix with people. When people are discussing try and pay attention to what they are discusssing especiallly if its a topic of debate like politics, sports, movies, contribute. You do read, so don't tell me you don't have idea about anything.

build your confidence.

its good to feel relax when alone, but don't allow it to affect your self confidence in public and in your speech publicly. Me that can address thousands of people Publicly now, it was not a one day thing. its a gradual process.

Get a teaching job. You will catch up from there. Your students or pupils will at the beginning intimidate you and if you are really to learn as you grow up you will need to as adjust yourself to certain situation.

The teaching job must be in one of the grade A or B private school.

Start practice nudism in front of your mirror in private.

Also sing out loud in shower.

You will come out of it.

You are not alone.

It's a difficult situation for introvert.

A speech club might help.

Practice more with a mirror.

Also, try speaking when your family are gathered together.

Do the same thing with your close friends.

With time you will be bold enough to speak anywhere.

NB: I edit videos for business owners. I also do data entry jobs.
Kindly check my signature my WhatsApp number is there, I'm very affordable.

You're experiencing Social Anxiety Disorder. Try to join a workforce (church, school etc.) or volunteer group to boost your self-confidence.

Practice! Practice!! Practice!!!

Know the topic you're meant to speak on.

Read about how to do public speaking and develop courage to speak as much as possible.

Asking questions in public is an easy way to build confidence.

You can't make much progress without your ability to speak confidently in public so learn it

Being shy is one of the attribute of prophet Muhammed (S.A.W)
You are fine just that you should not be extremely shy and don't always stay indoors ac that would make you an introvert.

As someone mentioned earlier, just get a teaching job.

I was once like you but the only thing that helped we was that I started holding microphone from early stage.
I dey shy but I do MC for school at end of the year party.

I dey teach well well before I got admission into Uni. Na so my shyness disappeared.

You will still notice the gentleman in my face but if have interaction with me you will know say I no gentle at all. 🤣🤣😀🤣🤣🤣


There was a time that I drank alcohol for me to be able to woo any lady. I don't teach you to be a drunkard o 😀

Whenever you are talking to someone.... maintain eye contact without cutting. Always keep your eyes open.

Guard your heart as you are about to speak. Once you continue talking. It will stop.

Learn to approach people first with hand shake.

Always force your self to approach crowd. If you F.up, you go again.

Learn to approach girls jokingly..

Dey try take 1 or 2 bottles. E.go help u shine eyes.

I once had this same issue, what I did was that I started appearing more in public and always want to be heard, I speak mst times. At first i was jittering but I later became used to it and now I am good to go at all time.

Focus online because the road to break from intro to extro is difficult. Getting tipsy or stoned could be addictive. I am still trying to fight my own... But I am really fun when I drink and very different when sober.
