    Hi guys,

    I am a guy who is in his early 20s. I suffer from social anxiety. I get nervous working with more than 5 people. I am just worried about my future prospects. How can I get a job if I get so nervous during the interview phase. And if some how luckily, I get a job how will I deal with work life. My interest is to go into banking/consulting/insurance. This requires working with clients/lots of team members.

    I am worried how I will do this. I just worry for the future. How will I get a decent job? I cannot help who I am. I try my best. I try to push myself, I try to act more confident etc..

    I am also worried in the future how I will get married, make more friends etc.. I am someone who has no close friends. Only 2 guys that I meet once in a blue moon.
