Struggling to start a career and give back to society. Being held back for years because you are too afraid to network/have a professional relationship or ask for anything from people you respect

Having SA feels like being a scratched up LP that keeps getting stuck at exactly 10 seconds into Track 02.

I'm kinda with you. Since working and whatnot, I'm around people. I'm very awkward but I wouldn't say I'm afraid to talk to people anymore. However, since being more exposed to others, I unfortunately realized I don't even like most people. It's depressing. I guess I have high expectations of others, and most people don't meet them. People are loud, rude, judgemental, nosey...it's hard to find other gentle, laid back people.

shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to.

@plastics , well with me it's unfortunate that if it's something important or I need to communicate with somebody that I want to know or that matters I still just freeze up or get nervous. But I COMPLETELY agree with you about the difficulty in finding laid back people. At some point everybody seems to jump to their own conclusions on something or another.

Another problem I have because of my anxiety is self-doubt.
Omg this is dead on, thank you for sharing : )

You know it's weird, but the city gives you a sort of anonymity while also providing endless opportunities to socialize or get to know other weirdos like yourself! At least for me it helped me thrive more...

I'm more prone to being isolated in a city than a small town. I received zero opportunities to socialize, and received a lot of language barriers from people in the environment at all times. My mind is less concentrated, and more affected by the polluted environment bio rhythm to over tasked my thoughts to a certain degree.


How can language barriers help me through social interaction? when people use mismatched words in a sentence to address an awareness that never existed in the first place to confuse my concentrated thoughts ?

Multi-Agent Quantum AI Computers managing humanity 24/7 using Quantum Cryptography Satellites to run a thought interval to generate cryptographic keys to refresh key information into thoughts to channel the communication 24/7.

NSA Software Engineers computionally remapping buildings, jobs, relationships, wealth, education, and income using bio intelligence system to manage citizens time & events in their own environment.


The real creator gave the programmers restricted technologies.

Fear of future loneliness. Sudden upticks in anxiety of people I'm scared of even if I don't know them and that gives me physical pains. I can't even control that anxiety.

I've begun to stop my idolization of people, which is an issue I've struggled with earlier in my teenage life and younger. I hope this helps in lowering my anxiety. People aren't worth idolizing.

Simply speaking up. I'm usually a quiet person. I keep my emotions inside. Also once in a blue moon I have panic attacks. With those it is because I tend to scare myself because of an unknown body sensation. Whatever it is it trigger my brain and it causes me to panic. Something people who have panic attacks that go through.

It's hard for me to start conversations with people I don't know. I can't meet new people. I also struggle with being rejected for my SA by women I've let some really important people in my life move on because I didn't want to keep them from being happy..these were people who I showed a deeper side to me than anybody but it didn't matter because I didn't want to hold them back socially. It's very frustrating looking at where I am now because of SA rather then where I should have been if I had only spoken up..
