For a long long time for 2 decades I battled with social anxiety.

Slowly by going out there, having practice I got myself out of it.

Same. So much trial and error. So many embarrassing moments. Tons of cringe memories of my actions in social interaction. Kept pushing. Now I'm free.

any advice for someone going through it now? I do tend to go to things so I know I'm not severe, but the anxiety leading up to events (or even a day at work) is exhausting

Did the lockdown help you calm down?
I would consider introspection and mindfulness meditation.
Admitting your past errors in social interaction and analysing where you went wrong/how to prevent that in the future.
Forcing yourself outside of your comfort zone until you are actually comfortable in any zone.
Knowing what triggers you and what doesn't so that you can filter out things that make you anxious.
Being calm even in the face of what triggers you. Developing thick skin.

Not really because one of my biggest anxieties is around texting, which is massively amplified atm. I just get really anxious when I see someone has messaged me online, I feel like I can't hold a proper conversation digitally and I can't see their reactions to my messages, so I assume they're always thinking the worse of whatever I've said (I like to read people's social cues a lot in conversation, and you just can't do it the same online).
