Ok, so I'm really scared t do anything in front of everybody because I'm really shy and I'm worried that if I say the wrong thing, those people might not want to be my friends anymore. What should I do?

Don't be so concerned with what other's think of you, especially at this age. You should be whoever you want to be and know that if people don't accept you as you truly are then why would you want to be around them in the first place? I'm very shy personally but I've stretched myself and caused myself to continue to grow because I don't want to be shy the rest of my life. I've given up caring what other's think because I know that those who accept me are the ones I want to be around in the first place.

you will regret wasting away years worrying about what others think of you. chances are that you are a wonderful person and that you dont need to worry. plus, if you were to die tomorrow, would people's opinions of today matter at all? people that you probably wont know or need to impress 5 years from now? be yourself, live life. =)

Never be woried about what people are going to think of you. You're your own person and you should be proud of that!
