How do I stop obsessing over every little thing?
It's driving me crazy! Whenever I talk with someone, I always obsess about the smallest things that give me a headache and stops me from just living. For example: I was at the eye glasses store the other day setting up an appointment for a eye check. I'm making a concious effort to make better eye contact with people because for years I've avoided it and I think I come off badly. So, the lady was explaining something to me and the whole time I was worrying if I was making her nervous, if I looked nervous, or if I was staring too long into her eyes. I'm so focused on things that should be natural that I don't enjoy myself at all. How do can I get over this constant obsessing/worrying? I feel like I'm taking a test everytime I talk with someone. One wrong move and they'll find out my secret. lol Seriously though, I need to get over this and I have no idea how. Can anyone relate with me? How can I work on this problem? If I don't fix this, I fear I'll never be in a happy space in my life.
