On Thursday, I made a list of all the SA fears I could think of, and rated them from the easiest to overcome to the hardest. Then, I started confronting some of the easier ones. I have driving performance anxiety. So, I drove through an expressway tollbooth twice, and also through my first ever car wash. I also went to the library, and to three stores (including a "super" grocery store) alone. I have a long way to go before I become totally comfortable with these things, but it's a start...

Good job, LostSockMonkey :boogie :boogie :boogie!

If you get to the top fears and still have a problem, try breaking them down by listing speciific fears underneath them. It'll help you to figure out what is causing them!

I like that the sequence. Start out small then work your way to hardest. the small triumphs gives confidence to defeat the bigger ones.

CONGRATS!!! :nw :nw :nw :nw

That is terrific, first you made a list so you know what you are dealing with, then rated them, then started doing the easier ones, I really really like that you are challenging yourself with little steps!!!!
It is little steps done reasonably consistantly that can, with time add up to solid and substantial progress!!!!!

Good For You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
