I just moved to a state I have never lived in and I don't know anyone. I am an extremely shy person and I really need advice. I start school tomorrow and I don't know what to do. Please help?

Smile a lot - say "hey, how's it going?" to some people in the halls. You don't have to be the best at conversation - just smile and be friendly. Everyone has been new at some point in their lives.

When you get settled in the school, look at joining some clubs. That will get you around people that share the same interests as you. If you sing, join the choir. Good luck.

The big thing is to make a start. You can never learn to swim if you are not willing to get wet. And you cannot overcome shyness unless you are willing to make the effort to break free by initiating conversations, making new acquaintances, sharing with others in doing things. Realize that everyone at times will feel somewhat uncomfortable or uncertain with certain persons. But do not make a mountain out of a molehill. Starting a conversation can be as simple as saying, “I don’t believe I’ve met you; what is your name?” From there let the conversation flow. If you show interest in others, they will show interest in you. And especially if you express appreciation for the good you see in others you will find many friends. And then day by day you will see your life grow richer, more interesting, more rewarding—to yourself and to those in whom you show interest.
