SA really screwed up pretty much every aspect of my life
I was just thinking about how SA has affected my life.
Professionally if I wasnt so concerned with the opinions of others I'd probably a lot further than I am now im my career. I was more skilled, experienced and smarter than a lot of the other people that I worked with but because I was worried about others opinions I wouldnt go for promotions or higher paying positions.
Socially I've done OK but I havent really pursued the relationships and friends that I've wanted because I was, again, too scared. I should've dated a lot more girls than I have and should've had more friends.
Now that I feel that Im past SA about 85% I feel like this will allow me to do the things that I want to do with my life.
I've been out of work for a while and when I get back to work I feel like I'll take more initiative in my career and work to get the things that I've always wanted. I've already started meeting more people and have met a lot more girls than I ever have in the past.
Its amazing how much of a hinderance SA has been on my life but now that Im not so constrained by others opinions I feel like I can get more out of life than I ever could have with SA.
I'm sure you all have similar stories about how SA has stopped you from doing things that you've always wanted to do.
