It’s fine, wonderful to have a supportive partner like Prince Philip to HELP you overcome shyness, but never forget, you cannot beat shyness completely unless you do it yourself. There are probably many ways to do this, but you have to do yourself and FEEL the process each step of the way. For me, as you may know from my book Brave, it took me almost 15 years of simultaneously reading about it, getting to know and to like myself, learning about others in general and participating in events-even being solo on stage. The final step was to be “in the moment.” With that I focused on the other person, gave all my attention to the person I was with, allowing no time nor desire to think about myself. A more savvy, wiser person could probably do it much more quickly!
