Talk....just Talk...

I had social issues and there were 4 painful years that I had. In that period I coudn't talk or act freely. I was a loner and I was afraid of others judging me.

I often cried because of social situations that weren't very comfortable and nobody knew for four years. I kept this inside me and as much as I thought about myself that I'm a social disaster as much as I was unhappier.

I have a loving family, wonderful parents...and a cool sister , but I coudn't tell anyone about my pain ( that grew in time). Untill this evening....

I coudn't keep it in me anymore. I had to let it go...I had to talk to someone. It was difficult...very difficult at first. I thought they woudn't understand me. I cried this evening as fo four years that I kept silence. I told them, my parents....and they really helped me see things more clearly. They didn't used psichological terms but with what they said helped me. I was a great relief. I felt at last free...

My advice to anybody who has social anxiety is to talk about your problem once and for all. Talk to whom is closer to you...If you think you don't have anybody who understands you...talk anyway to someone. Decide once you are going to do it. And talk....Let out all your pain. It's better than letting it intensify inside of you.

Just talk...You will feel great after. Talk honestly and tell the things exactly as they are.

I hope somehow that what I told you could help somebody...

I wish you all a great life - without fear....

I have social anxitey also, but i never had a problem with telling others about it, one of my main problems is tell others to much about my self! Im glad you were able to tell them about it! my anxiety is still very bad, i dont go out unless i absolutely have to, and when i do i do all the things to make me less noticable, like go out to the store in the evening when there is not as many people, i pay all my bills over the phone, it does make it eaiser for me when i go somewhere with some i trust and feel completly safe with, without that its rare if i can go out somewhere by my self. hope you have a nice day, take care and God bless you. <br />
