Hi everyone, I'm ready to beat this


Hi guys, just mostly looking for support, to give and to get. Social anxiety has robbed me of a LOT in life, connections with people that I wish I would've made, experiences that I wish I had. They're all gone because I chose safety, I chose escape and hid from life. I did not have the courage to be myself. I'm 31 now and don't want to spend my entire life this way. It's time for things to change.

I hope you will like it here. It’s never too late to make changes and have the things you’ve wanted in life that your SA has stopped you being able to do.

Hey wabisabi, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

Welcome to the site. Lots of good people with good advice and experience. Social anxiety has robbed me of a LOT in life as well. What situation do you want to show courage in?
