I can’t handle interaction with multiple people

0

With the people that I really know or with individuals is really easy to talk, I’m relaxed and confident. But for some reason I become really nervous when I must talk or socialize in groups of 3- or more people, I feel insecure and don’t talk much, I guess it is some kind of insecurity that strangely doesn’t happen with individuals and only in small groups of people, even friends, since I can perfectly stabblish a conversation with strangers when it is one on one. I’m sorry for any mistake made, English is not my first languaje.

Hello. It sounds like you might have some social anxiety.Social anxiety is usually being nervous or uncomfortable while hanging out with multiple people. Sometimes it can be as small a group as 3, other times it might only happen with a large group.Social anxiety can be really minor, and just be annoying; or it can stop some people from being able to interact with other people at all.Most often, you feel nervous and worry about what the other people think of you; you are scared that they don't really like you, or that you might embarrass yourself. There's a wide range of ways social anxiety can affect you.I have pretty bad social anxiety. I've found that talking to a councilor really helps, especially if you can learn how to "self talk" -- basically, give yourself pep-talks in your head and help yourself realize that there is nothing to be worried about.Hope that helps!

It's okay to feel that way because i'm like that too! When my bf hangs out with his friends he would invite me and i'll go but i'll get quiet and i HARDLY say a word which makes me look like a total shady person but that doesn't stop them from talking to me. they're really nice so they'll talk to me and get me involved without making rude comments like "Why are you so quiet?" "why are you so shy?" etc etc.. Of course being an introvert person that i am I actually get super nervous when i'm around a big crowd but with My bf being really supportive he doesn't mind that i'm always clinging onto him or having him talk for me when i'm shy.Try having somebody you're comfortable with around you when you're out like a party or a hangout. That way you could slowly get to know a person but still have somebody near you for support! I'm still a turtle in a shell but i'm slowly gaining confidence in being independent and not depend on others when i'm out. Good luck! :]
