The area I live in is not very safe so my mum didn't let me go out at all unless she or another adult was with me and my friends not until now and I am seventeen. She also always came with me when I went shopping so I never got to have my own style because I always got what she told me to get. Otherwise, she would get very defensive. Now, whenever I go out with my friends and stuff I get really nervous because I am not used to it and I get overwhelmed when I am shopping. Is this weird what can I do?
You start off easy and slow. The more you do it, the easier it gets to shake those feelings off.
And sometimes those feelings have been really useful to me, as you are on 'alert' and can avoid a situation when you need to. You'll find you'll automatically respond to such situations faster as you're in tune with them.
