Extreme anxiety of talking about myself
I am 28 and suffer from social anxiety. Ihave always been extremely nervous of sharing things about myself although the past few years i have gotten better at it.
i am particularly nervous right now with one person who i used to hang out in university and havent seen in 5 years. Sometimes he messages me on facebook and asks how im doing and i want to tell him that i have two nieces now but i have never told him i had an older brother in the states. I am scared of telling him and him being mad at why i didnt tell him before. My oldest brother is a phd so never wanted to talk about him for fear of standing out. I am extremely nervous people thinking i am rich.
I also never told this guy that i have a sister. This was for fear of making jokes about.my sister if he found her good looking.
Now i want to be open with this guy and really nervous he will be mad at me for never talking about my sister and older.brother before.
am i overreacting or do you think he will not care at all?
