Post Here Whenever You Take A Positive Step


I think it would be nice to have a thread for people to post in whenever they go out of their comfort zone/take a positive step.

☆☆

I went for a walk around the park by myself today, which is the only time I’ve walked anywhere alone. I’m going to do this everyday as long as the weather is good enough, and if anyone says hi to me, I’ll force myself to say it back, even if it’s hard to.

I like this thread.


Posting my embarrassing pictures was a big one for me. I took a risk of possibly being made fun of and a picture being stolen. At this point I really don't care. It is nice having people to encourage you and they do it with you. It make it a lot fun. : )

I haven't done it yet (still having my cup of tea) but I'm going to make myself visit a friend at the markets. He called again the other night to tell me they were all going to be there. He's a book guy like me.

I can't believe how ridiculous I am about just seeing people that actually even like me to start with. My natural inclination is to not go - I really have to push myself each time.

There was nothing wrong with how you looked in those photos. You looked like a happy, fun person.

It's not so much social anxiety related, but I did manage to ease some general anxiety and tension that has been affecting my family after having a long, rather heartfelt conversation with my father.

I went for another walk, and the park was busier than yesterday. I only walk around it once in case I look like Iím doing something suspicious, but my parents said most people would walk around it a few times and that I would look normal, so Iíll walk around it more than once next time.
