so im afraid of other people because i was raised in as situation bearing similarity to what i believe the Germans call rattenkreig and it has turned me in to a paranoid hyper vigilant mess and as my friends have started referring me to as mon calamari cause i think every thing is a trap(star wars!) and i want to fear people less im just not sure where to start... any suggestions?
challenge yourself, everyday set yourself a goal. for example: today i will talk to a stranger./ today i will sile and wave at a stranger.. do that until you feel more comfortable
I used to be like that. Hating crowds, even worse "crowds of strangers". I have major issues being alone in crowds. Thinking something's up and no one even bothered to tell and now you're stuck contemplating every little thing around you. But then I worked out on how I view things and myself. I try to find better perspective of the situations in front of me and try to work out something good from that even if it's a little one. Start with the little things, try and boost your confidence and you'll go a long way.
Start one nerdfighter friend at a time. Hello there. :)
My advice is just make sure you have a really strong support group of people who you trust and who know how you feel and have them with you while you ease yourself into situations that would normally make you feel afraid.
thank you every one for your support i have a job interview cause i didn't avoid people :) !!!!!!!!
Nice one :)
