Hello, I’d just want to share a little thing, I’ve known that I have social anxiety for one year now, and I think I also have some symptoms of avoidant personality disorder, so I’ve been thinking of telling it to my family. It’s just that first: my avoidant personality disorder makes it really difficult to open up with someone about my feelings or saying that I’m not fine because I don’t want to be judged or make someone dissapointed. And second: I really don’t want to upset them because they’re really good and I don’t want them to think I have this issues because of them.
So I don’t know if I should tell them or not, because my disorders are not serious enough to worry. I could live with this, but I know that eventually I would have to tell them or go to a therapist to help me with this.
So any advice?
It would be great if you can bring it out and seek for help. These disorders are ok to have and they can be worked on. Do not let them be with you for so long when you can work on them and get rid of them. It’s ok to have them, and it’s great that they can be worked on. There is nothing wrong with sharing it. with your family so you can get proper support and help that you need!
