A lot of my anxiety comes from not knowing the right thing to say or do in a situation.

But I was reading "The Bell Jar," and they talk about acting with such confidence, that you convince other people you're doing the right thing. They give the example of a famous poet eating salad with his fingers in a fancy restaurant - but doing it with such assurance and poise that people assume it's a natural thing to do.

I think it's a very reassuring thing, to not always have to worry about social niceties and the correct and proper thing to do.
