I went through a lot in my freshman year from an unhealthy relationship to self-esteem issues and I made a lot of bad choices. However, I feel like I've learned a lot from them (though I am by no means calling myself wise, because I don't qualify as an elderly lady), and if there's anyone out there who wants advice or support or help, I'll be more than willing to give some! :D So yeah, have a great day everyone!
Hey, Kras! Alright, problem: I've got some pretty terrible social anxiety. HElp? Please? Also, I wish that I had a million dollars! c;
Hey Drag :) can't give you a million dollars, but I was shy, too so I'll give this a shot. It might sound stupid, but start small first. If you can't talk to a person directly, talk to your dog. Start pushing yourself to be more outgoing. Doesn't have to be anything major, though. Set goals for yourself (great now I'm sounding like one of those annoying teachers in middle school). Come up with things to say that you can default to if you're in a situation where you don't know what to say. If your mind goes blank and you forgot your "default" statement, compliment the other person. Remember, the other person is probably just as shy as you. If you freeze over, don't be afraid to say, "I'm sorry, I have social anxiety/extremely shy and I just need a moment to relax." If it's a truly awesome person, they won't think you're weird for that. No person should judge shyness; that's just wrong. Hope that helped! :D
Yeah, thanks. :)
No problem! :) Take care, mi amigo.
