My social anxiety is preventing me from getting to know people in my new town. The problem is, I close up even when I'm around close friends...I don't know why I do it, or how to get over it... Is it still social anxiety when it's all my close friends? I was invited out to a party at my friend's boyfriend's camp last weekend. All the people there were people I know...and yet I still shut myself off, secluded myself, and felt totally awkward. WHY???

I have a similar problem. At times, I close up around close friends and even family members. It's very frustrating. I'm not sure why. One of the main things about social anxiety is the fear of judgment. I think I sometimes feel I will say something dumb.

I think that since I moved to my new town, a few years ago, I've clung to a few close friends and haven't really ventured out. A few of those close friends, I can talk to about anything, and don't get all awkward. Most though, I'm still guarded around. Some of the people I do feel close to are feeling suffocated because they are my only support system in the area. I am having trouble building my new life...
