Happy new years guys.
Just had a crazy fucking thought. IN a year an a half, I will be in university. I could actually be in medical school. Fucking hell thats a crazy thought. So long as I can get my current set of qualifications and the next more intensive set, I'm on the right track.
Its blowing my mind that my life could change so dramatically in that time.
Who's suffered social anxiety and over come it with time?
I got a question for anyone who has. I've been working hard to not harshly criticise myself, and for the most part it works. I no longer spend hours tearing myself down over silly little awkward social mistakes universal to everyone.
However, awkward slip ups still trigger an automatic emotional response disproportionate to the circumstances at the time whatever it is happens.
I dont beat myself up over it tho. Does this go away?
Been doing a lot of soul searching since my breakup.
Something that's helping me deal with things better, is the realisation that: I need to look for what I'm looking for in other people within myself.
I'm looking for compassion and understanding from other people (platonic or otherwise). Those 2 things aren't something I give myself and I'm starting to work on it.
I'm starting to feeling better in myself for doing it and I'm proud of my self for figuring it out.
This will take time.
