I’m glad you’ve faced it and are managing it effectively. You’re worth it too!

Social anxiety is really tough. It really does make doing things in this world harder than hard. Wanting to reach out, afraid to reach out, that tight feeling when you know you have to talk to others, interact, go to work, or school or any other thing that requires us to people. I’m so sorry that you are still struggling but it’s good to know that you are working through this and doing what you have to for recovery and healing. That is huge!!! The biggest hurdle is just taking those first steps back to health. But like you said, it’s so worth it. And YOU are worth it. I’m glad you shared. Thank you.
