It's not over til you've given up or you're in the dirt.

On enhanced mobile I don't receive notifications besides pms. Apologies if I don't respond.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Whatever the situation, everyone has a blind spot. The idea is to learn to better yourself as you experience different situations under different circumstances. I will say this though, WHO you spend time with is also very important. They need to challenge you and have some value to add. Spend your time around idiots and you'll become more idiotic. Spend time around close-minded people and you'll find your world start to shrink. Personally I can't stand dummies so I just hone my skills at putting them in their places and insist on keeping them completely out of my personal life.
I get that you mean well but Iím far to jaded to believe in better days or improving or be boosted by that fact that everyone has their issues...I agree that who youíre around is important though, not necessarily because itíll improve ones social skill but because a good social circle will always boost self esteem

Not really, I haven't made much progress in breaking out of my shell.

Nope, when I die, I want to stuffed & put on display completely naked in a very crowded public place, with a sign above my head that says "So long suckers", shyness overcame.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
