Happy Partying: Even the Shy Can Survive!

4 years ago

If someone says PARTY, I am there! I love getting together with old friends and making new ones, when I can.

But while I am confident enough to move to the middle of the room and chitchat with anyone or everyone, I know that some people have a harder time being social without feeling anxious. Not everyone is an extrovert, some people prefer smaller social settings to larger ones and when they are put in a large social setting, they freeze.

For those that aren’t as social as chatty Cathy, I have some ideas to help with the nervousness that you may feel in your belly before you meet new people at your favorite friend’s annual holiday party.  


To all, shy or not, a very happy New Year and may only good things happen for you in 2013!!!
