this summer i took a psychology class, and a large part of the class was getting in groups with random people and discussing various topics. to my surprise i found that i was very confident, outspoken, funny, assertive, and didn't feel anxious at all. i wasn't overanalyzing everything and just let my thoughts flow. i guess if it is in a group setting with a set task i fare better than just initiating and carrying on small talk. i know its not much but hopefully i can learn from this and improve my everyday social encounters.

It sounds like a big step to me too. Doing well in a social setting (especially with strangers) is always big for us SAers. Nice job and good luck with the rest of your classes!

Beckjcream,

That is a triumph - not even a small one. I know I have struggled getting my point across in groups (meetings, etc.). It's great to read that you didn't have that problem!
