I have the fear of rejection. It sort of ties into my shynes

I have the fear of rejection. It sort of ties into my shyness. I never ask someone for something, I never try to to get help at a store, because I'm afraid of a negative response. I would like to know if there is a way to get over rejection.

i think maybe working through that fear might be helpful, like what would happen if you do get a negative response? What would happen? although it causes anxiety to think about negative things, sometimes our minds stop- building up fear of the unknown. Will you change who you are if you do get a negative response? will your self worth, basic personality change? taking the mystery and power out of the "what if" might be helpful...what does the group think?
