I tried this therapy/audiobook a while back and it did seem to help a bit so I downloaded it again today. My confidence is shot and I really need to change my thinking.

In session 24 audio, Dr. R finally says it, "I need to take responsibility for my own life, grow up, and stop complaining." No way jose! I guess I needed to hear it after all, more like a slap in the face. Maybe social anxiety really happens when you can't allow yourself to take responsibility for your own life because of the negative emotions from the past which keep you complaining and stop you from growing up. Social anxiety is just a bunch of irrationality after all, and the way to get past it is to think rationally. Why I should have known that overcoming social anxiety is all about learning to grow up. Ow session 1 is free?! https://therapy.socialanxietyinstitu...ctures/4660864

Ahh session 5 - my favorite. It sucks a bit that the audio program raised their price, but it's so worth it.

He's really cute, please where can I find him?! When I went to the group here, Dr. Richards told me that everyone likes me! He basically lied to me! Not everyone from my group is on my facebook friend's list, some of them didn't connect with me at all and others had really disgusting personalities. Some guys from past groups are so attractive and they reject me socially, this is social rejection! Oh it feels bad to be rejected, I never thought it would feel so bad! But I'm glad about the guys who did become my friends, those are good enough, mmm.

See how much arousing someone becomes when they smile and laugh?! Smile and laugh is like an instant like to someone, you don't even have to win someone's social interaction with small talk even! Just smile and laugh!

Negative effects of the program


Hey guys,
when i started the program my experience was, that everything was actually getting kind of worse i a way. I think i figured out why, but i am just looking for somebody with a similar experience, that has maybe some advice
so before i decided to start working on my social anxiety, i was fine with family and friends. it were mostly groups, partys, presentations and stuff that made me nervous.

After i really got into the whole topic of social anxiety it became much more relevant, and everyday, after doing 30 minutes against it, i kind of reinforced, that i have this "sickness". I only lead to more anxiety and overthinking, even with friends and family now. every social interaction became a test, and got more meaning.

So does anybody share my experience and has any advice?
Thanks guys
Filo

Hey NANNO BEE,
I dont know if you are still on here, but i definitly understand what you are going through. I am in week 5 and feel the same way. I find it rather logical, to kind of dive into your anxiety and make it worse, since for the first time you are giving it much more room and time in a way. I am also still trying to figure this out still, and right now it is kind of worse than ever before. I would love to hear from you, if you are still on here.
Sincerely,
Filo
