I recently moved to a new school and made some new friends, but I am really shy. At my old school I was not shy, but at my new school, for some weird reason, I am especially shy. I have a few friends, but I can only really talk to my close friends. Whenever I try to start a conversation with someone new I always get tongue twisted and forget how to carry on a decent conversation. Any tips to help me get out of my shell? Oh and I am driven my competition.

well that's okay. I've just moved into year 8, and there are still some people whose names I don't know. Meeting new people means a new territory and the experience can be quite frightening. 
 
I guess you can just stick with your close friends, but if you really want to make new friends, here are some tips:

- Practice a conversation with a teddy bear or with your pillow case. Boost your confidence by holding your chin up high and making sure you know what to say. 
- If you're doing an activity in class, make friends by making small conversation. Just ask simple things like what's their favourite subject and say that you want to know some things about them. 
- Compliment them. I don't know about you, but if someone who's been harsh to me randomly comes up to me and says "omg, I'm so sorry for the way I've been treating you. By the way I'm so jealous of your hair and I was wondering if we could go to the movies sometime?" I would TOTALLY forgive them smile so maybe compliment the person sitting next to you about their hair, or their clothes (and if you have school uniform, don't bother) etc. 
- Be kind and helpful. If a guy/girl drops their books on the way, help them out! Be smiley and nice to everyone. 
- say "wow, have you seen this movie?" And if they say yes, continue to talk about stuff that you like.
- BE YOURSELF! Don't pretend to hate your favourite singer just because you're afraid someone will be harsh to you. And if you dislike the same music as they do, then don't be mean to them, tell them you just don't like those singers / or maybe change the topic. 
- Think positive. If things don't go your way, then don't worry, there are more people who you can talk to. And besides, you still have your closest friends & you can't be everyone's friends

When I moved to a new school, I made some friends in the class and luckily they were popular.! Just understand that YOLO could help you even though it may seem like an old term. Make friends now.

Converse!
Converse.

It's normal to feel shy. You are probably going through a thing called culture shock. It will go away as you get more comfortable in your new school.

When I meet new people sometimes I get too shy but I get to meet them I'm not so shy anymore

To be honest I am in the same boat. I am way too shy to talk to people at school to the point where I don't have any friends.

What's your tale, nightingale?


Treat others equally and we'll get along fine.
