While there is nothing wrong with being an introvert, there are introverts out there that wish they could be more outgoing and extroverted. While this may be a tougher process for others than to some, it can be done. Here are three tips to help you on your way to being more outgoing.
1. Don’t Overanalyze
Sometimes, we tend to think too much about what others think about us and how often they think about us. We have all had those moments where we did or said something stupid and then never forgive ourselves for it or dwell on it for weeks. Well, chances are nobody is thinking about that moment nearly half as much as you are. Roll with the punches, move on and don’t dwell on or overanalyze things for too long!
2. Tell People or Express How You’re Feeling (and ask about them too)
Because they are often inner-focused, introverts can sometimes forget to express their feelings to others. It can be hard for others tell if you are enjoying yourself or not (or are happy or not), if you don’t express it. Also, some introverts can sometimes be seen as rude, but usually it is just because they keep to themselves. If you are trying to be more outgoing, asking others about how they are doing is a great way to make easy conversation.
3. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
This is perhaps the biggest key in becoming more extroverted and outgoing in your life. By getting out of your comfort zone, you open yourself up to a whole new world of situations, scenarios, challenges and people. These will all make you a more varied person and will help you let your guard down a bit and be more open. You will also be doing more in your life and thus have more to talk about, which could help in making you a more outgoing and social individual.
