I’m feeling weird. Very weird. For the first time i told my family that i have social anxiety. They always knew i am an introvert but I guess it was a bit shocking for them to know that i am socially anxious too. It was in front of my cousins and the moment i was telling them about what all i feel i was on the verge of breaking down. I one of those people who never share their feelings. And for the first time i told them and by telling this i told them one of my weak points too. I feel so conscious right now. I don’t know how to feel about this. To feel relaxed or to feel anxious. Will they use this against me someday? Or it’s only me who is overthinking about this. I want to change myself.
Social anxiety is totally normal and something a lot of people struggle with, including myself. The first step is to be kinder to yourself and if it’s something you want to overcome, I find that putting myself out there little by little helps tremendously. You already did a good job of opening up to your family about your struggle. Hopefully they are supportive and help you through it (:
Thankyou i hope it gets better now that I’ve told them :(
They might take a while to understand and need to do some research about it but at least by knowing, you are enabling them to help you even if in a small way.
