    Thank you for sharing your story. It’s kinda funny for me to read this because it was almost like taking a look at my life from your perspective. I too was very outgoing and a chatterbox when I was very young, however, I enjoyed my own company and was fine being alone.
    As I got older, the social anxiety of being in crowds, shopping, and going to festivals of any sorts, is a real challenge. My friends too say the same thing about me, “You’re always talking” yeah, maybe, but only with them.
    I am more of an introvert than an extrovert. I still enjoy being by myself.
    Again, great post!!!

      Thank you so much for this comment and for the reblog! I find that so many people are in the same position, and a lot of the time the people you would never expect to be suffering with social anxiety actually are and just never speak about it! It’s good to know this resonates with somebody!❤️

        My roommate has very bas social anxiety, but she is so rude to people… She basicaly snaps around people. If we are out together, I feel even more uncomforatable because of her actions. ARGH!
        You are very welcome! It was a greta entry, and more people need to know what it’s like.

    Thanks for this. It helps me learn more about these issues and I understand youdidn’t feel like seeking help because you’re so outgoing. Then again, it makes perfect sense that an outgoing person can still be anxious.

      I feel like it’s not two traits people would usually put together as they’re such a contradiction of one another, and just wanted to bring more awareness to it. Thank you for your comment, I’m glad I could help shed some light on the subject!
