Social anxiety in particular can’t be explained to people who don’t have it ,cause it’s so hard to justify the reason behind why you get shaky just because you have to walk through a room full of people, and trying not to stumble because you think people are constantly judging you.
It’s not always about the issues with body image or something like that.
I joined college recently and of course you get to meet a lot of people there and you can’t really plan on it .
I always find myself arguing and apologizing at the same time in my head very loudly when I kinda make mistakes in public that people don’t really care about but I just feel that too much.
You tend to ignore doing common things like coughing in class because you just don’t want that mini second attention.
Its haunting to introduce yourself to new people and make eye contact!
Every now and then I’ve been answering questions with “I don’t know” all the time because you feel embarrassed saying what you actually know and really nervous putting up your thoughts on it .
And the RELIEF of getting back to your domain and knowing you don’t have to do anything extra for a while is amazing.
Let me tell you, if you are ever with a person who has anxiety ,and they do silly things ,DO NOT ROLL YOUR EYES, DO NOT SIGH IN EXASPERATION .sometimes it’s hard to do simple thing like that ,and when people help us out ,its means the world to us .
