And I have social anxiety.
I didn’t try to become this way.
I was such an outgoing child/teen. But, ever since my twenties I can’t talk to people outside of my old circle of trust. If I do I can’t make myself hold eye contact after the hello.
Am I okay? I don’t know. It’s so strange cause I wanna be outgoing. I just don’t know how.
Every time I try to talk to people my breath catches and I have slight panic attacks.
People tell me “just branch out. It’s not that hard to talk to someone and make conversations.”
But, they don’t know how much it strains me to find words to speak without repeating myself 12 times.
