I realise I do need to make time to meet people in person.
I have get anxious when I go out in person .
I have fear of people probing me for cash and when I tell them I'm an international I'm so afraid that they think I'm rich.
I live with mum and dad and I make it a point to keep record of what spend when I'm out. I feel guilty when I spend money on piss from the bottle O.
It's way cheaper to shout drinks that way than say buy a round at the pub.
I spend money on piss due to social obligations in australia and this indicates a chill environment rather than an overly intellectual international.
Right now Pubs and races courses and festivals are a good place to feel social. But being alone I don't want to get murdered, drugged, or mugged at knife point.
I don't want to be taken advantage off but want to be a good mate. With piss there are ubers and other shit to cover so someone doesn't die. I was bad at reciprocating this in a relationship I was in.
Help me to be fun but an okay mate
This thread over here is a great place for self-care and distraction ideas (It's the 1000001 Coping Strategies and Distractions thread)
They might have some on-the-go ideas you can use to help you when you're in a social situation. What do you think?
