just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time

it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness

thanks

I FUCKING HATE SOCIAL ANXIETY BECAUSE YOU’RE SCARED TO TALK TO PEOPLE BUT ALSO DYING TO TALK TO PEOPLE AND HANG OUT AND RELAX AND HAVE FUN AND NOT BE ALONE AND LONELY AND FEEL LIKE SHIT BUT YOU DO FEEL LIKE SHIT BECAUSE YOU CAN’T EVEN RELAX ENOUGH TO TALK TO PEOPLE WITHOUT OVERTHINKING EVERYTHING

I don’t hate school. In fact, I love to learn.
What I do hate is being in an over populated school, with so many varieties and options of friends to make,
Yet I’m still alone.
I can be surrounded by people and at the end of the day I’m still upset that I haven’t found, not one person, that can understand me as a person.

You know how you would feel if you were swimming in the ocean and all of a sudden you see a shark? That wave of panic? That’s how social anxiety feels. Only, you’re not in the ocean, you’re in public.. And it’s not a shark, it’s humans.

Someone asked me to explain what it was like living with Social Anxiety Disorder, this is what I told them (via cats-tats-recovery)
