One of the most difficult things for me to manage is my anxiety, which is at its worst when I attempt to be sociable. It’s a strange thing because l genuinely love people. However, being sociable makes me so anxious and l’m often left feeling utterly exhausted afterwards from the sheet effort of controlling my anxiety.
I find that my anxiety can easily snowball as lot of it comes from being embarrassed about my nervousness. I can act a little odd at times. l get super hyper and animated and end up saying the most inappropriate of things! The best thing in the world is finding friends for whom this isn’t an issue and l can completely be myself with, no matter the state of my mood. These kind of friends are priceless and a vital part of my self-care. I’ve recently reconnected with my old high school best friend and it’s like no time has passed at all. We spent some time together on the seafront today, eating cake and being ridiculous.
