Re: I wanna make friends?

omg I totally get you! that's legit what I'm going through too and makes me kinda feel more connected cause im not the only person out there that is experiencing these things. like I honestly thought there was something wrong with me but I guess im not the only one!

Re: I wanna make friends?

I try and hide my social anxiety but for me yeh making friends is to hard and then I try get out of my comfort zone and I eventually become friends. my fav sport has to be tennis and soccer but yeh footy is super fun too. honestly its probably my low self esteem and im rlly self conscious but honestly idk why. hahah Nono it makes me feel better honestly. I haven't tried meditating maybe ill give it a go!! yeh I get it your honestly such a good person!!

Re: I wanna make friends?

yesss ofc

Re: I wanna make friends?

Hey @ruthxxx 

 

I just wanted to say how heart-warming it is for me to see that you feel less alone after reading that other people go through social anxiety. I used to think it was just me too! As I got older more and more of my friends started to say they had the same anxieties about socialising - we kinda had a laugh that we were all silently feeling so anxious and didn't say anything to each other. 

 

Low self esteem can definitely be a contributing factor and it's amazing that you have the self awareness to recognise that. You mentioned that you try and get out of your comfort zone and eventually make friends - that is so brave of you to get outside your comfort zone! Heart

Re: I wanna make friends?

Hey, sorry it's taken me so long to reply but that's great! and thank you, i appreciate that. Headspace is a pretty good app for mediation, it relieves my anxiety and stress and it teaches me to be aware of my thoughts. when i do it for the morning it puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day.
