Hey guys! I was wondering if anybody else has this problem, as it is something I have been struggling with for awhile. I get super stressed out and panic quite a bit before I am around people. I am usually okay once I have been around for a bit, but before I go, I tend to freak out and I lose control of reality. I have a problem in that I over analyze situations, and I think people are bored, and don’t like being around me. I have quite a few friends that I am kind of close with, and are super supportive of me, but I am very uncomfortable with one-on-one interaction. Sorry for the rant, please reply if you have advice or want to talk about your experience with this

I absolutely do! I have this feeling that no one wants me around and I just feel so different from everyone else. It isn’t fun. (Adding more to that, I also have a form of Asperger’s Syndrome, so that makes things even harder.)
Today, I still have it. However, I realize that I have some amazing friends who are just as weird and geeky, if not geekier than me, and they have made me feel like I belong. I totally get the one-on-one thing. However, as Christians, it’s never technically “one-on-one” since God is always with us. Just knowing that has helped me hugely with my social anxiety. Hope this helps!!

When I’m with someone that I’m not extremely close to, I worry that I’m boring them or that they are judging what I say, and this makes me feel very awkward and uncomfortable. However, the more effort I make to talk to someone, the easier it becomes each time I encounter them. I’ve realized lately that the one making me uncomfortable is me- and others are willing to spend time with me for who I am- not for who I think I should be:)
