One of the symptoms of my social anxiety is underestimating my social skills. Multiple people have told me that I have good social skills and I don’t believe them… I just take all the memories from my break when I was socially impaired, and label myself as that.
Apparently this isn’t new to the studies on social anxiety, I read in my workbook that it’s very common. Don’t underestimate your social skills.
Despite my recovering most of my social skills, I still wish I had more friends in the Midwest. My best friend might come out for Thanksgiving this year though.
And to end this post, I’d like to say that: all the cliches are true. Get out more. Talk to people. Don’t focus on the negative.
