How To Be Confident

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I am new at all this puberty stuff, but luckily that's going pretty smoothly. My biggest problem is being shy. There is this one boy at my school that I really like, but I'll never find the courage to tell him that even if I search the whole world. If I could just have some advice on how to be confident, that would be awesome. Thanks.




Dear Dianne,

Being shy is a trait a lot of teens share. Chances are with practice you can overcome your shyness. Being shy has a lot to do with confidence, nervousness, feeling uncomfortable, or timidness at your age.You might not be ready to be noticed just yet, but with some practice it shouldn’t take long to get ready.


Sharing with us you have a crush is a big step in getting ready. Now that you have shared this think about how you want to act around him, and what you would like to say. The girl you are seeing as you imagine this is a more confident you! When you are ready to work on being noticed ask a trusted friend, your mom, or an older brother or sister to role-play how you’d like to react when you see a guy you like. Practice this, and when you are confident, add what you’d like to say. A simple “hi” may be as far as you go at first. Once you are comfortable with this, add a little bit more. You will feel anxious at first. Understand this is to be expected. I think you will discover the more you practice, the more comfortable you will be.


You can do this!

I had love him since 4th grade, but I didn't get any chance to tell him I like him, what should I do? I think if I let this going longer, and we are never seeing each other again, then I will never get any chance, like at ALL to confess. I guess none of my friends know about this website, I'm just gonna say it out: I LOVE YOU, DUY!!!!!!!!!!!! >.< P/s: OMG!!!! I can't believe this!

I just moved schools and on the first day, I put on a brave face, squared my shoulders, and stood tall. Half of thetrick to being confident is looking confident. I have been shy my whole life and I just figured this out.
