    @jeles good thinking on channeling that energy in something non threathening, breaking stuff when frustrated can be scary for the people around you, they don’t know that they won’t be hit next.

    Another sort of unrelated thing which I feel like mentioning is the fact that breaking things when you are angry may feel like it will help relieve your stress but I came across a counter intuitive research […]

    Very interesting! It seems to me that this friend of yours hold a special place in your life and you are more open to him than others. When you’re stressed out you don’t feel like taking it out on others for […]

    Let’s say that since a few years I’ve became a nervous person when I feel stressed up. Like, a lot stressed up. This happens when I’m having exams for university, or it’s been more than a week that there are […]

    I like to pretend that i don’t have social anxiety, i really do. I mean when you just pretend everything is fine no one judges you or looks at you weirdly and funny enough sometimes its the SA switch is just off and suddenly i don’t feel anything, but that’s sometimes. Today i went somewhere and it just hurt me seeing my friends socialise and…[Read more]

    • @shadow99 It’s okay to not feel comfortable with things that you think should be fun. One of the trademarks of problems like anxiety is it makes it difficult to enjoy yourself, and you can’t always help it. It’s something to work through so while it may be a challenge at random times and make it feel like you’re not getting anywhere, putting…[Read more]

    • @shadow99 you don’t need to be like someone else. Everyone has their own demons. Yours is social anxiety. However try to fight that. Social anxiety many times can lead us to isolate ourselves (I know this by experience). Never allow your anxiety to do that. Even if you struggle keep going out, try your best to do breathing exercises and learn how…[Read more]

    I’ve basically kept myself in the house for two years because I don’t want to go out with people. I always feel the need to have to pretend to be someone else, especially in front of new people I meet. It’s exhausting to the point where socializing becomes a chore/performance rather than a way to let loose. I get so afraid to speak about how I…[Read more]
