I was pretty brave and confident when I was a freshman in college. I could easily talk to other first year students, I could easily ask any professor if there was a subject that I did not understand, I could easily raise my hands when I wanted to speak up.
But all that bravery and confidence is now all gone by the time I am in my last year. I can’t even go to the campus without feeling excessively nervous and scarred for no reason. All about college life makes me terrified and and all I want to do is avoiding anything related to college and stuff
Everyday I’m living in fear of these small things and I don’t know how to fix this.
I was actually thinking about going to the psychological counseling center of my major department but of course I do not trust them :/
Hey thank you for opening up. I thought I was the only one. I used to be extremely confident, bold and upfront throughout my school , college and at the beginning of my professional life. Right now I am in place where i feel like i am a coward. I lack confidence to the greatest extent possible and i fear and feel anxious about everything. I am scared to approach people and struggling to cope up with it. I can relate to how you feel. I am looking for a solution to overcome the same. I wanna open and overcome this without being judged. I hope we will sail through this phase and overcome our shortcomings.
