I have many notes to share about the psychology of dealing with shyness, or how we are viewed, or think we are viewed...
The first deals with SELF ACCEPTANCE:
How much of our energy is wasted by being worried about how we are seen?
Wasted in comparison mode. Wasted on self judgement, or the judgement of others.
It is a very natural thing to be self-conscious, and normally this has a negative connotation. I'm trying use my self-consciousness literally and to my advantage instead of towards my destruction. Simply and literally consciousness of self. I try to always always go back to 'B'. Begin and begin again. Breath and release the animal.
