Asking that here is not gonna give you a fair idea of how many people overcome it. People who overcame social anxiety probably want nothing to do with it and have no desire to relive it through posting on forums. So my guess is you're not gonna find anyone, but don't let that discourage you. If you get past it, I'd imagine you won't dwell here either. That being said, I am sure most people get over it at some point or another. At some point in our lives, we all will have that "f*** this, life is too short" moment. Maybe we'll undergo some philosophical epiphany, maybe it'll be a midlife crisis. Who knows?
