Foot Shyness Problem

I've always had a foot shyness problem for as long as I could remember. I'm not exactly sure how I developed this problem because when I was really young I went barefoot and have pictures to prove it, but as time past I started to feel uncomfortable when people saw me barefoot. I would only go if it was absolutely necessary like when I took Akido, a form of martial arts similar to karate, but I would only be barefoot for the class and that would be it. It got to a point that when people told me to take my shoes and socks off for whatever reason I would feel a sense of anxiety come over me. This feeling went away shortly after once I realized that there was nothing to worry about but I was still uncomfortable about the though of someone looking and seeing me barefoot. The problem got so bad that it wasn't until the 7th grade when I started to sleep barefoot. I have managed to overcome most of it but I still feel uncomfortable going barefoot around other people unless necessary i.e doctor appointments, swimming, yoga, etc. I love going barefoot when I'm alone but around other people like family forget it. When I'm alone I walk around the house and if the weather is nice I'll walk in the grass some barefoot. I'm graduating college soon and I'd like to be rid of this problem completely. Any tips or advice you could give me would be helpful. Thanks.

If you do have a foot shyness problem then how did you overcome it? I've seen in some of these polls that some people had their friend's help them by forcing them to go barefoot while at their house. Did something like this happen to you? Please explain.

I've never really told anyone about my problem. Not even my friends because I was more embarrassed to tell them that I had this problem that sounds so stupid, but if I was to ask a good friend about it how should I tell her and how should she help me overcome it?

Last question. Is there anything that guys can do to dress up his feet? I have some anklets and I wonder if it would be appropriate for me to wear one?
