I finally gained the courage to go socialize with my friends this weekend after being by myself for about 2 weeks. I was actually pretty proud of myself for being brave enough to go out, and my confidence got boosted too. Just my luck that I got canceled on. I worked up the nerve to put myself out there, and I get shut down. I know this might not sound like a big deal, but it makes me think that nothing to do with socializing will go right for me, so why try? I feel like as if I don't deserve to socialize, so why bother? After having my confidence boosted, it got crushed down to a very low point.
