I had breakfast with my boss and colleague at a busy cafe this morning. It was bustling with people, and usually in these kind of situations, I feel quite dizzy and anxious. I was feeling dizzy, but I managed to stay the entire time and appear somewhat relaxed.

I had a skit presentation in my Korean class today. I was so nervous at first but I got through it! Even made some people laugh (with me, not at me)

I made small talk at a drive thru.

I stopped a potential fight which I rarely do.

What about eating out with your mom made you nervous? Was it the eating out of the house aspect or more on spending time with your mother?

Only asking because I feel weird when I go out with my parents too.

Being out in public period makes me nervous/uncomfortable. Plus the place was packed (more than 3 couples).

Put headphones in and listened to music at work. Feels strange not being able to dance and sing along

Showed some of my extended family my self-harm scars. A little intense. I just think the only way I'm going to improve is to be open about my issues.

Absolutely none, which reminds me that is the problem

That is awesome, Kevin!
And you are right. Be open. And if it's scary, know that you have friends that support you.

I went to dinner with my friend and met a couple of his friends. Wasn't too awkward. They ended up going to a bar afterwards, but I was too afraid to join. Maybe next time.

I ate at a restaurant today with my mom and sister. I felt uncomfortable but at least I got out there.
