Weird avoidance thing and anxiety about job


I have been on vacation for the last few days. The place we are staying at has a pool. For the first few days, it was mostly empty. Today it was busy, and I just didn't want to go in. I felt like people would watch me. I had no problem at the public pool near my house or the lake. I just got a job. I am excited about having money, but I am terrified. I am so awkward and bad with people. I am just so terrified. Social anxiety really sucks. I was fine years ago. I feel like I did something to make this happen. It's just so awful.

God bless you

Probably safer to social distance anyway.

But other than that people don't really stare unless something stands out about you

Sometimes our facial expressions can give us away too. If you wear an anxious facial expression people will wonder what's up and maybe think: "did they lose something valuable?", "are they looking for someone?" etc

John 3:16 (NIV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
