Everything is going to be okay.
I’m the same way. I have anxiety every day/moment/situation/second of my life.
There’s treatment, and I have a friend who followed up on it and he’s doing great.
I don’t take medication for it or anything, I just try to live normal.
And it works for me, I mean, things are hard sometimes in ways that just don’t seem possible. But if you just take long breaths and take baby steps, it can be livable. Sometimes the anxiety actually works in our favor.
You may not be a very strong person, but you are a strong person. You only get stronger.
Work on tackling your fears one day at a time and don’t pressure yourself; thats what the rest of the world is for! Just know your limits and try to match your expectations with your capabilities - strive for excellence. Be patient, have fun, do what you love.
You don’t have to wake up one day and burst your own comfort bubble, just do it in strides.
Life is worth this.
You are not what you’re going through.

Honestly,I think everyone suffers with anxiety/parania from time to time.
Hurting yourself wont make you feel better,your defeating the object.
Ask yourself why you feel that way,go back to when you was happy.
Dig deep! You cant fix something which isnt broken.
Hmm.. ‘’everything is going to be okay'’ is often what people say to try and make you feel better when they’re not exactly sure how. I have been told this many times.. its not a bad thing. They are just trying to be positive.
What is wrong with being an emotional person? Sometimes I feel very unattached to everything and the only thing I feel is this strange numbness. I would much rather cry at every little problem and maybe care enough not to dissapoint people. There is, however, a time when this ‘’caring'’ goes too far and becomes worry. Why do you worry that you are not good enough? I do not understand this. Has someone told you that, or is it your own conclusion?
Here are my thoughts on the subject, think of it what you will.
Every person has their flaws. You cannot be expected to be perfect. Mistakes are part of life. We learn from them. It makes us better people. You worry about disappointing people, but I think that as long as you are trying.. there should be no blame for what you are not able to do. It is your life. Live it to be happy. As long as you care, you can live and be happy.

Just forget about what others think and just do what ever makes u happy and feels right.
I also struggle with social anxiety and depression. It’s hard, it really is, I know. I have recently started attending therapy to help me overcome my social-phobia and depression. If you have the means then perhaps this is something you should look into as well.
Good luck! Things do get better.

with all due respect, why do people respond these way. everything is gonna be okay, you are not what you’re going through.. i am sorry but i find those replies crappy.. i have yet to find a reply that went to the heart of the poster. i am not bragging that mine could be better, in fact, i could be worse, but i am sort of not content with what is written before mine.
i have nothing much to say anon/poster. kill your self/die. then what? you will be happy.. if not, just push the undo button, you might reverse it and live again. which we both doubt. cry to your hearts contents. lament you life, blame yourself and your life. do all these. but afterwards, wipe your tears and live. live the life you have been given. your life is not your right, it is your privilege. you have your life in your hands, you are not that helpless and powerless. there is no need and no use to be depressed, and angry or lonely. before you please others, try pleasing and loving yourself first. you might become a better person. and pray, when all else fails, why not try God?
I’m sorry for trying to help?
I love you .

now wanting to live or just not knowing how to? I think those people who say everything will be o.k are people who have experienced what they thing are similar feelings and passed through them and now feel strong again.
Social anxiety disorder, from my experience is absolutely exhausting and horrible. it’s not life enhancing at all it is life limiting. Not wanting to live with it is reasonable thing to feel and if you have these feelings all of the time it is possible to feel hopeless sometimes.
It can be overcome though. Allthemessylove is giving you good advice. Let’s pause for a minute though and just acknowledge….social axiety disorder is sh*t. Horrible and crap.
I wish you the strength to push on through and overcome it. Go easy on yourself and try not to entertain it. It’ like a bad houseguest you can’t get rid of. Ignore it and eventually it will go away.
You are not your thoughts. xx
