please help barry with shyness and social anxietyWatch
i've been on a course for months, but i've not got close to anyone because of shyness and social anxiety. i regret it now as i finish up soon. i wanted the connections everyone on my course made. how do i freely talk to people and make friends before the course finishes? other people can do it, why can't i? how is it so easy to people? i don't understand why its so hard? i even tried adding one of them on facebook and got rejected, most likely for never talking much. so some constructive advice would be appreciated.
Be approachable, friendly and take risks, that is the only way.
Feeling at ease is hard for people with SA so all your positive characteristics are hidden from view. It's not that you can't, it's just that your social skills are rusty.
