I fought this one for a while. The more you try not to think about it, the more you ARE thinking about it. I think this may somehow be tied to OCD; we begin obsessing over how not to think about it! I was able to get over it by just accepting I have social anxiety related to eye contact. Internal dialogue: "Yep, there's that reminder I have this problem...it's just social anxiety talking, but I'm not going to let it win by "feeding it". Then I just refocus on what I am doing or get involved in something that will get my mind off of it. I think fighting it just makes us think about it more, so do the opposite...let it be okay by accepting this is happening to you right now, but you know you are working on getting better. Somehow accepting it's there allows your mind to let go of having to think about it. I hope this makes sense. It freed me from the struggle of trying to forget about it. Good luck!
