a sense of panic

I cant make eye contact with people or walk down the same aisle towards a stranger & it makes me really uncomfortable when strangers (like waiters or store workers) call me out for something or ask me do I need anything. i also cant raise my hand in class & ask a question. I just start to panic & overthink it because i feel like i will respond with something stupid or say something wrong and they will judge me. does anyone have any tips for getting over that shy & scared feeling and begin to have more confidence in myself?

I unfortunately don't have any tips but following to maybe learn something myself.

Hi! Sorry if you’re going through this. Maybe try and expose yourself to what scares you. It’s not going to be easy but I think it’ll help you.
