I just moved to Paris because of work and it feels difficult to adapt

Design Lalala 19 Lalala

I am originally from Cyprus and I work in IT. The company I work for is established in Paris but until now I used to work from back home. I got a chance to move to Paris for a couple of years for a bigger wage and I thought I'd be a great move which would help me broaden my life experiences. However, I have always been a bit shy and since I moved to Paris it's even worse. I feel like it's hard to expres myself (I know a bit of French but not enough) and especially, it feels very intimidating that eveyone looks so busy and in a hurry all the time. Is there anyone who could give me some tips that could help me survive in this urban jungle and start to enjoy this genuinely amazing city?
