"How are you doing today?"


Thats what I said to one of our new coworkers on Friday. I was sitting at a desk and he was over at his and i felt really nervous because if the silence and i didn't want him to think I was ignoring him or being rude and I REALLY wanted to break the ice because I was tense. So I turned and said "How are you doing today?"
Of course he said fine and I was just glad to have done that and then i didn't feel that feeling when you are in a room with someone and feel uptight and what they must be thinking.
Anyway it seems to help me and if I try to put forth the effort to ask a person if their day is okay it shows I care. Yes I also asked my friend if her day was going okay. It's funny how we sometimes have brief moments when our SA goes down a bit. I wonder what makes it fluctuate?
Thats my triumph... for reading.

Anxiety28,

That is still a triumph!
I have trouble doing that some days. I think it surprises my co-workers to hear me say hello to them.

Way to go!

Re: "How are you doing today?"


its not a coincidence anxiety feelings go away sometimes, if you are around a good friend who is confident YOU become confident too becuase you're used to that person and act yourself around them
anyway good going thats great
