Meeting new people terrifies me.
Meeting new people terrifies me. Alright, a bit off blog topic and I know it does for a lot of people and I’m just being a great, big baby but the truth is that I’m scared of people and I pretty much always have been. Generally, though, I’m cool with that.
When it comes to my fear of new with people, I understand that about myself and that I don’t have a choice but to interact with people and I need to be friendly or at least professional — it’s an anxiety thing and a work in progress but it works out. Usually, at least. In fact when people find out that I have severe social anxiety they usually seem genuinely and sincerely surprised to hear that. Which is nice, it means I’m doing a good job at keeping my problems from becoming a problem for everyone else.
