I Need Some Advice?

I worry a lot. A LOT. And I'm very insecure and lack self-confidence. I'm always avoiding social situations for fear that I'm going to make a fool of myself and have the other person or people think that I'm an idiot. I tend to say "sorry" a lot. Like, even if someone else did something to me, I'd apologize for it. It's just a habit, I've been doing it for a while. Well anyways, I've always wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. I want to teach Global History so bad, I just love history class. Only problem is, if I have social anxiety and I avoid social interactions, how am I gonna become a teacher? Do you see my dilemma? I was just wondering if there was anyone out there who knows of a way to help me get over my anxiety. Please, it would mean the world to me.

I was terrified of having to do presentations at school in front of my peers and the only way I overcame this was to act like someone else, if I pretended I was the most confident person in the world I could get through a presentation without bursting into tears. Hope this helps and good luck :)

Thanks, I'll try that :)

Thank you. I'll definitely try that, cause it's like my dream job
