What do you mean? My self esteem only depends on who I'm romantically interested in. Social anxiety is not linked to my self esteem problems. My self esteem is all about looks. My social anxiety comes from not being able to hold a conversation yet join one based from lack of knowledge on whatever topic is being discussed.
