Many people grow up as a shy person. It gets better when grow older, but shyness may still be around when coming to a whole bunch of stranger. Let's don't be shy and talk about it.
It's okay to be shy. There is a point where you might feel wrong to be shy, but it's always good to tell yourself that it's okay not to be a loud person in the group and just be a listener. When it comes to a point where you feel comfortable to talk, you will talk. It's always the comfortable environment that helps.
Don't push yourself too hard. Sometimes we want to be more outspoken and turns out being annoying the group. Believing in yourself that friendship or relationship comes naturally, it's always bad to push yourself too hard and end up with a bad result. This makes you feel more afraid to show yourself next time.
Start from a small group of people. If you are too afraid to speak up in a large group of people, start from a small group or even one or two friends and try to build up the confident before getting involved in a large group. Having a talkative friend from a small group and leading you to a bigger group is much easier to go right into a big group all by yourself.
