I'm getting over my fear of online interactions!


So, I've been using this forum for the past 3 days, before using this forum, I couldn't even make a single couple letter post on anything online. I feel like the supportive community here has really helped me grow as a person, and feel a lot better about posting in general. I've already made over 20 posts because of how accepted and appreciated I feel here, so thank you all! I feel like I will get over my fear of online interactions completely within the next few months!

I know exactly what you're talking about and that's wonderful that you're improving!

I feel glad for hearing people's progress. I never had considerable problems with online interaction, although I never used to start conversations myself. I'm just a little bit shy sometimes, which is nothing compared to my anxiety in real situations.
For some reason I feel more comfortable when speaking English. I'm not a native speaker.

Thats so great! Soon you will lose your online anxiety! Also, do be aware that while a lot of people are accepting or appreciative, there are also a lot of people who arent. So you just need to not let anyone's negative opinions get to you

Big thanks to you and everyone else for the replies! I've been trying to get better at receiving criticism lately, as I realize sometimes it helps you in the long run if it's constructive, helping you improve your work or actions.
