Parties can be a daunting prospect when you’re shy.

Even if you can psych yourself up into going, you might face an evening of standing in the corner, either hoping no one will notice you or that someone will take pity and come and talk to you anyway.

But, there are ways to master your shyness.

You can put the days of turning up and going home as soon as possible “well, at least I went” attitude behind you.

You CAN say goodbye to those occasions where you write “Failed.

Again!” in your journal.

Try these things and embrace that inner social animal that’s screaming to be let out.

1. No Pressure

No Pressure

One of the best things to do when you’re shy at a party is to constantly remind yourself that that is simply what it is - just a party!

Even though your anxiety might make you feel like everybody is there to look at you and is expecting you to be the source of all the fun, you will be absolutely fine and not out of place if you just take a drink and set yourself up where you can take it all in at your own pace.

2. Adjust Expectations

Adjust Expectations

You don’t have to enter a party with the expectation that you need to have as much fun and get up to as much mischief as the main character in a college movie.

In real life, parties are very rarely that crazy!

The only objective you should have is to enjoy yourself, and if that means being reserved among your close friends then that’s fine!

3. Pace Yourself

Pace Yourself

It’s good to have a grasp of your personal limits.

If you are already being super brave by beating your shy nature to even be there, don’t let yourself get pressured or persuaded in to doing things that you don’t want to.2

You don’t have to dance on a table in front of everyone to ‘party successfully’!
