I suffer from social anxiety. I mostly fear social events where I have a hard time keeping a conversation and making friends. I just started a new job and there will be a staff retreat tomorrow. I didn't have to go but I'm going to go so I can do a little socializing and practice some new techniques from therapy. A lot of thoughts are going through my mind right now. My biggest fear is to be the odd one out and end up eating by myself, but I keep telling myself that my goal is just to expose myself socially even if I don't succeed at connecting with somebody. Wish me luck!!
