How Social Anxiety Impacts Me

Social Anxiety⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I never knew this existed until I had a friend point it out to me. This is something I deal

with and pray about. So I am not a person you want to invite to a get together. If I am at an event or a get together you can find me in the corner. At this point I will be thinking of my exit strategy! 😩

I am a home body and it’s bad when you have a child that gets invited to birthday parties because I have to mentally prepare to be around people I don’t know and sometimes people I know.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I do want my daughter to have a social life with other kids.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

People will mistaken my facial expression as mean or looks like she doesn’t want to be talk to. It’s really the opposite. Talking to me helps more.

I grew up in my teenage years being someone else just to be around a crowd of people. Now that I am older I find that It is difficult for me to just be myself in a crowd and sometimes I am quiet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I love one on one conversations and no more then 3 people is my limit but when we talk about more then that. That’s when it starts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

At first I thought it was me being crazy but it’s not, it will just be something I have to continuously work on.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When you are a blogger and influencer its hard when I should be doing more networking. For now I will slow myself into that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Small Steps.

Do you deal with social Anxiety while pursuing what you love?
