If you are shy about talking to someone, try inhaling and exhaling deeply to help you relax then open your mouth and talk. You can start with words about the weather, news or others. From there, you are conversing.
5. You Must Listen
Try not to be completely overjoyed about meeting a new friend and ensure you listen to the other person. A good way to know a person is simply to listen to their verbal and non-verbal communication.
Have an amazing 2019.
