Tips to Feel Comfortable around People

No one can master the art of conversation overnight. You should be patient enough to accept what you lack and ready to change yourself accordingly.

Take Initiative
There is an interesting concept called as "breaking the ice" which means one of the two strangers breaks the silence and starts a conversation. You need to understand that till now, you faced difficulty to open up with people because there was lack of initiative in you. If you try to initiate a conversation with a stranger wherever you go, you can develop a habit of making friends faster and can get comfortable with them easily.

Be Confident and Bold
Half the battle is won, if you have confidence. You should be able to present firmness of thoughts through your speech and body language. Do not hesitate to share real life incidences/ experiences with people around you when you feel that you are in a good company. You are mature enough to understand people and judge them.

Be Positive in Your Expression
Even if you have to share a negative thought or any tragic situation of your life or any issue in general, be soft, calm and most importantly make use of words that reflect positivity. This will result into a healthy talk without disturbing others’ mental stability. You should always think what you want to say before actually saying it. This will help to avoid controversial statements.

Praise People Honestly
You might think that a good conversation is possible only if you praise the person in front of you and you might begin to show artificial smile and appreciate for things which are actually very general. A smart person is able to identify the artificiality in your conversation quickly, especially when you praise him/her artificially. So be alert and praise the person honestly.

Do not Make Fun of Others
We have no idea if people take things positively or get offended. So to be on the safer side do not try to develop proximity by making fun of others. Instead try to make fun of yourself. This will project you as very realistic and humble personality.

Listen to What Others Have to Say
Mark the word listen here because, there is a great difference between the words 'hear' and 'listen'. Hearing is an involuntary act, whereas listening is voluntary. We hear a lot of sounds around us but, listen to only those that we want to. The person conversing with you must not feel that you are only hearing and not listening. This will disturb the flow of the conversation as you won’t understand what to say next. Listening is also a good way to have an idea of the views that others have about a specific issue and how is their general perspective in analyzing things.

Be Empathetic
Like you, there are people who feel awkward when surrounded by people. You can help them feel comfortable by being empathetic with them, understanding their emotions and treating them as if you were in that situation.

Lastly, try to be yourself. If you behave naturally and do not exaggerate unnecessarily, people will like you and want you to be around. Follow these tips and see what difference it makes to your personality. Good luck!
