Social Anxiety

Social anxiety

Are you indecisive? I try and live life by the yes policy.

Yes to collaborations, yes to escargots in Paris, yes to dyeing hair but when it comes to anything social it’s maybe baby.

Social anxiety is something I have always battled with. I am full of self-doubt and constantly give myself a hard time talking to people at events.

“Am I coming across as shy? I hope I’m not coming across shy”

“Is my voice too high pitched?”

“Do they like me?”

“Be more extrovert. Be more extrovert”

Social acceptance is something I crave but unfortunately it is also something I will never be certain of having attained.

Sometimes it is just easier to say maybe and stay at home around those who accept you unconditionally.

I am my own worst enemy when it comes to this and it is something no amount of Instagram likes is ever going to change. If you know a good self-help book or have a method that works for you then message me! And next time you see me at an event say hey!

    I feel the exact same way. I’ve always been so shy and introverted and the fact that people made fun of me for that made it even worse. Being shy is something only we know how it feels so it’s really hard for others to understand and I feel so bad that I’m this way.

    This is something I struggle with too, but I’ve gotten better. My favorite book that has helped me is “You are a Badass” by Jen Sincero. I have recommended it to absolutely everyone because it is honestly life changing!!! <3
