New Start

I'm a junior this year in high school and I've always had a hard time socializing or carrying on conversations like everyone else. It wasn't until last year I started researching social anxiety and realizing what I do isn't just normal "shyness". Over the summer I tried to build my confidence. I went out of my comfort zone as much as possible. Just remind yourself that no matter how hard it is for you it's never as bad as what you think it'll be and even if it does go terrible everything will be fine. This year I am really trying to socialize more even if it's just a smile at someone or laughing at their joke. Even though I feel awkward when I do this, it does get better and more comfortable the more you do it. Just believe in yourself and don't let your mind race.
