A while back (okay, quite a while back), I wrote about myself and social anxiety. It was the first time I had really told my wider circle of “people I know” about it. The post basically doesn’t exist any more. I read it about 2 years later and I shook my head, thinking I just didn’t do a good job of articulating what social anxiety was like for me.
2016 has been a big, BIG year for Zeta and I. It’s very hard to put into words just how big it has been for us. But I will attempt to.
A huge part of my social-anxiety is my self-consciousness, especially in social situations. Those situations can range from interacting with someone I know well, to talking briefly with someone at the supermarket checkout. Annoyingly, it isn’t enough that I feel nervous in these situations but I also become quite noticeably awkward. I wanted to write a bit about it, so for those that interact with me will understand me a little better.
