    I really hate it when people think that shy people are arrogant. Just make sure you smile at people because this makes a lot of difference, and try and think of things to say.

    You just need to be confident in yourself. You don't have to jabber on like an idiot all the time. Reminds me of this quote: "A wise man speaks because he has something to say; a fool because he has to say something". I'm a relatively quiet person and pretty much always have been. Throughout my life people have made a huge deal out of it- school teachers especially but the truth is that I don't have to change who I am to please other people. I'm not shy, I'm perfectly comfortable asserting myself and I don't have any problems making friends and socialising. I have quiet, thoughtful moods but that's just the way I am. If you don't want other people to see you as stuck up just chat to them, be friendly when they they talk to you and laugh about things; yourself included. The most important thing to remember is that no one else should be able to push you into being someone you're not. You have to find confidence yourself so don't feel as if you have to become really outgoing to get people to like you. Be yourself and it will be enough.
