How Can I Gain Courage?
Question: I have had an ongoing issue with being very shy around people I do not already know. I’ve always been like this. It has held me back from doing a lot of things that I would of liked to do or thought of doing, and I feel very uncomfortable when put in situations where I do not know anyone or am unfamiliar with my surroundings. I know this is a silly sort of question but I doubt that God wants something such as being shy to hold me back from doing things or experiencing things. It is hard for me just to go to church by myself. As a result, I don’t really have many Christian friends. Do you have any suggestions for me so I can gain some courage?
