I write poetry and blogs about my curiosities in life. Why do we stress? We do we settle for less? Whether it's heartbreak, inspirational writings, I'll just write away~
How I Am Overcoming Social Anxiety
I suffered from social anxiety for about all my life really. I have only been diagnosed with it this year without knowing it. I really only assumed it was incredible shyness until I realized that the shaking, trembling, cold hands, but most importantly the inability to go outside in fear of interacting and seeing others interfered with my daily functions in life. How am I ever able to go outside? How will I get the groceries, how will I try on clothes to buy? Even going outside to my neighborhood was bothersome enough because I couldn’t take the amount of staring each one of them gave me.
What happens when you settle for less, for the men who were, or were about to become, abusive boyfriends? You feel lost, empty, hopeless, but afterwards you become smarter, wiser to know not to make the same mistakes again, and most importantly, you become stronger.
