Social anxiety has polluted my life since i hit puberty, and it's really preventing me from going to restaurants when i want to, sit in cafés alone, order anything, let alone ask for another size at a store. Because of that i also never ask for the way if i don't know it, i prefer getting lost than asking a stranger. It's just a challenge to make friends. Sure, i am introverted, but i should be able to ask where the tuna is at a convenience store without sweating like crazy and rehearsing in my head before. I just can't talk to people i want to know, or i think are interesting, and i want to be able to. That's why i want to overcome social anxiety. To improve my life, happiness, and to get rid of insecurities.
