Even though SA can be so debilitating, when you overcome a fear or are brave enough to try something new, that feeling of pride in yourself and what you accomplished, regardless of how mundane or simple a task it is, is so, so special. People who dont have SA might confront their manager at any time and its no big deal, but the few times that I was strong enough to confront someone in authority are very special moments of my life that I still look back on with pride! I fought against that rush of fear and anxiety and almost threw in the towel and was ready to walk away but then I DID IT!
And then I can tell myself, look you've done it once so you can do it again! It only almost gave you a nervous breakdown beforehand. lol.
