Listen up guys because i only created this account to share my experience with you about this subject
Social anxiety level: about 8,5
*note that my english is not very good*
I remember developing SA at the age of 15 and i started lifting weights at the age of 16 mainly because i though i "was too skinny for girls to like me".
I have been doing this unnatural thing called bodybuilding for 4 years (16-20)
I never felt "big enough" even if i was 85kg and 1.80m tall at the age of 19
It's been 1 year since i dropped this stupid activity and i started facing my problems.
Please belive me guys: Girls don't give a **** if you are muscular or not. Getting bigger muscles will not make you more confident (on the long term)
I'm now able to accept my body the way it is and it feels 10 times better than constantly aiming for more muscle mass
I'd like to share more with you, but as you may have noticed, english is quite hard for me, and i find it hard to express what i have to say
If you want to do something concrete about your S.A.D, start doing a lot of outdoor phisical activity and spend more time in the sun. This will REALLY help you mental and phisical state!
ah, and drop any S.A.D medicine unless you wanna die
