okay, so I am sure I have a very severe case of social anxiety.





I have it too sometimes.  It sometimes feels like everybody is scrutinizing me when I am in a super crowded area.

Well, I was sitting and eating alone, and I make eye contact with this really fuckin hot girl, and this is always when I fuckin freak. First I get locked into their eyes and I feel frozen and my eyes buldge really wide, then I (Automaticly) turn my head, but I have a muscle spasm or something in my neck and I shake like crazy. I tried to play it off, but I fuckin spazed out like a spastic idiot.





Haha...way to look like a freak.  :lol:  Don't worry...I have "girl-looking mishaps" too.

Welcome to the world of being a weird dork (Prime Minister: RandalFlagg).  I suggest alcohol because it makes you not give a shit about stuff.

hehe is ok dude, i used to be sorta like that...well w/o spasm but i know wut u talking about. It IS best to not give a shit about them, but u gotta kickstart this...a few shots of vodka or a good spliff should keep you so busy enjoying urself that the last thing u'd actually care is how you seem to other ppl...make sure u dont become an addict tho :wink:

Maybe PA has something in the water that makes people weird (I saw you say that you are from PA and I am from PA as well).

in that case, I do suffer from it a bit too.

as randal said, alcohol helps

just out of interest, what drugs do you partake in?

I know I did.

IMO since you asked. Your problem really isn't social anxiety. The problem is you don't love yourself unconditionally exactally the way you are. That is where love lives. :heart: :mushroom2:

Here's my view:

Social anxiety comes from lack of confidence. Lack of confidence arises because you have a poor view or yourself or because other people have a poor view of you and you pick up on that.

The next thing to determine is why whatever is happening is happening. Are you ugly? Are you not fun to be around? Be honest with yourself. There is nothing more pathetic than lying to yourself.

Once you know the truth, you can begin to focus on your strengths. Do you have a good sense of humor? Do you do something well that will get you respect from other people?

Marijuana makes me much more confident paradoxically. Whenever I smoke it I'm not afraid to go out and socialize with people I barely know, just striking up a conversation and reading their expressions. Alcohol just dumbs me down, but marijuana is perfect.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

I wish I was like that.. I am somewhat relaxed when high, but it makes me paranoid like a crazy man. I dont get paranoi all teh time, but usually I get some everytime im high.

I only get high for music

Weed isn't what it was like in the 60's, its now totaly different
