You kind of sound like an artist. Are you creative? If so, then it's ok to be "weird." Maybe it's even required. :)

I think the guide you wrote is very insightful. You are right about us being self-absorbed. We focus almost all of our attention on ourselves and are constantly trying to see ourselves through others eyes. Always worrying how we look/sound/act/come across, etc. To the point of not being able to relax and actually pay attention to the present situation that is happening right before us. Instead we have all this other crap going on in our heads ("they're going to think I'm a freak" etc.) that we can't just experience the experience.

I think the self-focus is the core habit we need to change to lessen the anxiety. It's hard tho, cuz it's such a strong habit!
