So I have bad anxiety and it’s gotten even worse now that I’m homeschooled. Simple things like going to the grocery store or any social thing gives me horrible anxiety. I get really nervous and don’t even like to look at people. I just feel really intimidated in public. Please help!

My dear, you have been given a wonderful gift. God never gives us more than we can overcome and this is a tough one. Just think how wonderful it be when you overcome it. I have anxiety issues as well and I overcome it through missions work. There is no easy answer for this but keep the faith. God is walking along side you, coaxing you to be strong and not to doubt him. He has great things in store with this <3

Have you talked to a parent or adult that you trust about it? I’ve found that refusing to talk about a mental problem like anxiety often makes it worse. Support from real life friends or family will help you overcome it. Going to a psychologist or counselor may also be a good step for you. I would start by researching social anxiety & by telling someone you trust how you feel. Then you can look into other options that could help.

Ah! I’ve been through what you’re going through right now. I was a former cutter, and been diagnosed with a bipolar disorder. Things have gotten better, all because I found God’s love. For you, could it be something with a lack of self confidence? If it is, remember that YOU are made in God’s image. Don’t compare yourself to others, everyone is beautiful. I used to be extremely shy and quiet, never talked to anyone. I’ve gotten out of my shell by talking more to people. By being more social, you’ll build up that confidence, from what I’ve learned. Be proud of who you are! Show that beautiful face to everyone! Get better soon, xoxo

Ugh I’m sorry! I’m sort of like that too but not so extreme, but I still do know how you feel! I’m especially anxious about school stuff and tests, exams, etc.
