Let's talk social anxiety and hope everyone takes the time out to read. I posted this earlier in my story but I wanted to go into more depth. It's a real thing and something not many people are talking about. I suffered with this from a very young age and still to this day. For example I would used to hate going shopping because of my anxiety, even when I had to order food before I would have to rehearse my order 30 times, when I go to public outings I would sweat uncontrollably and would have to leave thankfully these have subsided a bit.
It's something that made me lose opportunities. It's something that eats at you and it's a voice in your head that keeps telling you the worst outcome, it's a voice that tells you everyone is looking at you, judging you.
People like to chalk it off as "shyness" but it isn't, it's something I wish I didn't have to deal with, it's something I envy others that don't suffer with it. People rarly are able to understand and think it's something I can just shut off.
It isn't. Although I wish I could. I just want to make more people aware of this and not to think everything is rainbows and puppies on social media. I will never pretend life is golden because that is truly a lie no one's life is perfect, so don't believe everything you see online because 100 times out of 10 it's bullshit
So feel free to share with me the stories of maybe the aniexty you face, I'm always here to talk and I'm more then willing to help in anyway I can because social aniexty is a shitty thing to go through alone.
Everyone is a mess, showcasing that and sharing your struggles is the very essence that makes us human.
