Forget Everything or Face Everything

Dealing with social anxiety may take efforts. But it’s worth to try. Most of the time I feel this anxiety increases as I meet people. I would like to share my experience about dealing with social anxiety.

I tried and tried to stay strong every time my boss put the blame on me even though it’s not completely my fault. For example when our client complained about the weak security system on their web. I wanted to shout at his face I have no bloody idea about internet security system. But when I did the right thing he never noticed. So a year later I resigned.
People are so unbelievable. I had been a jobless for the next six months and people started to look down on me. So I locked myself, avoided meeting others especially relatives and friends (which I barely had). Again, I was continually dealing with social anxiety.
then applied for remote-based job, got it after a skype interview. I worked for a company in New York from home and received salary from bank account. Still, people saw I was not normal enough since I didn’t go to office. Then one day my manager said she would come to Seattle next month attending some business meeting and asked me to come with her.
I was so shocked. If I refused then I would lose my job. Otherwise, I would meet stangers and it’s not impossible including my former boss. I agreed to meet her anyway. The sight of a middle-aged woman wearing glasses with severe look hit my imagination. I’d seen her before on Skype, but it’s not clear enough.
I was so damn nervous on the day of our meeting.
When the first time I met her I was right about my portrayal of her in my mind except that she didn’t have severe look. She had this smiley face and didn’t look like a stony geek. She came with George from the IT department. I tried to keep calm but my hands are all sweaty and cold. Thank goodness there are no people from my former company.
But I looked so gawky. Later in the evening my boss took George and me for dinner. She asked me if I was okay so I said yes. She looked at me that made me revealed my anxiety this whole day.
George said he had the same problem with me in his first days at work and he offered me to join Anxiety Therapy Class in New York. That’s it. I moved to New York and started my life over again. My boss supported me because she said my design was unique and had its own character. It boosted my confidence so I started my journey of seriously dealing with social anxiety.
I realized not many people with social anxiety had the same good opportunity as George and me. So I’d simply like to share the cutting-edge way of dealing with social anxiety
but I can't share in here coz it will too long, if you want to know more please visit
