  1. Hey girl! Thanks for sharing your story. I understand how you feel. My personality type is INFJ. I love being around people and am often described as outgoing. And yet I suffer from a lot of social anxiety and especially hate being around large groups of people I don’t know well. It’s hard for some people to understand, but it’s good to know we’re not alone.

  2. Thanks so much for this – it really gives a clear picture of what so many people go through and awareness is so important for instilling compassion and understanding.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing your story. I do not suffer from any form of anxiety, but I have several friends who do, and it’s extremely tough on them at times.

  4. Anxiety sucks! My daughters suffer from anxiety, one from a head injury and it pains me as a mom that I can’t help either of them. They have to work it out as you have and know what to do when

  5. I have a lot of anxiety when facing a lot of new people, too. I think A LOT of us do, so you are not alone. I power through and most people are surprised to know how shy I feel when I act like I am outgoing. I decided in middle school that I was going to be an outgoing person and would say out loud to myself in the mirror, “I am outgoing. I am outgoing.” It really did help, but it also helps now for me to recognize and honor that I do struggle with anxiety, too.

  6. This is a great post. I have a friend who struggles with anxiety and now I understand her struggle better.

  7. This helps me understand what it’s like a lot better. It’s great that you’re so aware of your anxiety and you’re able to fight it.

  8. Anxiety is something that I have had issues with for years. Especially out in social situations it gets so super bad! it can be so awful and hold me back from so many things!

  9. I think it is so important to be self aware. I definitely have anxiety and feel it is more common than most people realize.

  10. I can totally relate to this post. I’m the same way as you: if I’m put in the right scenario, then I can socialize really well – I kind of go in both extremes. Many of my friends don’t believe my anxiety because they’ve only witnessed my “outgoing” side.

  11. I also have anxiety, but mine centers around my health and the health of my family. You are not alone!

  12. One of my kids suffers from anxiety and it’s such a hard struggle! I’m so glad you’re talking about this! Too few people are willing to share their struggles!

  13. It’s never easy to deal with anxiety and what’s sad is that people don’t really take it seriously. I think it’s brave of you to share your story and no anxiety is too small to talk about, really.

  14. Anxiety can be one of those silent demons that you have to fight from within unless you let others in. Thanks for sharing!

  15. It takes guts to share about your anxiety. I have a couple friends that have it and I try to help them as much as I can.

  16. Thanks so much for sharing your story. I too suffer with anxiety as does my daughter. It’s not an easy road but with the right mind set and support system we can make it through!

  17. It is so hard to live with anxiety. I find most people do not understand unless they have experienced it.

  18. It’s great that you’re getting the word out to help people understand more. My DIL gets overwhelmed sometimes, doing simple things. I wonder if she has a touch of anxiety.

  19. Thank you so much for sharing your story. It is powerful but also worded in a way that makes it easy for everyone to understand what it is like going through life with anxiety.

  20. I have a friend who hides from her anxiety a lot and tries to pretend it’s not there in order to please people. It makes me sad.

  21. This is very helpful. It is really hard to deal with anxiety and make people understand what’s going on.

  22. Living with anxiety can be so terrible. I wish we can make many posts about it so people will be aware and will deal with it properly.

  23. You sound like a strong person, that’s what I would pick for your reasoning behind your survival rate from anxiety. I’m sure you’ll do great with teaching your daughter and guiding her from her troubles once she faces her own.
