What is this? Confusion
Is it ok to reach out to a fellow anxiety sufferer? Even though you see them weekly in customer service and thats all you know about them. I think my daughter makes him extremely nervous.
My daughter is Aspergian and quiet beautiful to look at. She is very anti social and is going to speak with no one publicly in that type of setting.
This anxious person in question is very loud and talky with collegues and customers when we are close by but when it comes to my daughter and me and he is checking out our things, he is deathly anxious and serious. I feel like saying its ok, we are in no way better than you in any way shape or form. We are far from perfect. Am I reading his body language wrong?
She is not arrogant or judgemental she is on the autism spectrum. We do our weekly shop there and its been like this for a few years now. We or just my daughter make him really uncomfortable. If he knows we are in the store, he will make his way around close to us and get really chatty talky with one of his colleagues.
We were in his checkout lane one other time, talked the hat off his previous customer, we were next up for paying checking through, deadly awkward silence. He has probably translated my daughters social awkwardness as a rejection of sorts. She has no clue whats up.
I think he likes her, but doesnt know what to do himself. First time he checked our stuff through he saw her for the first time and let out an audible sound that he thought she was attractive. Should we find a new shop. He seems very anxious when we are in the store.
In the darkest hour the soul is replenished and given strength to continue and endure.
