Fear of being around people

by tryingtothinkofsomething

I don’t know why I feel so scared around people. Or to go where other people go.

I just don’t feel comfortable around other people, especially groups of people.

Even singly, I don’t like to be around individual people. I don’t know why either.

Nothing bad happened to me as a child.

I don’t know why.

I would just like to be more outgoing and more confident in my self in public situations.

I think I’m greatly afraid of being embarrassed or being humiliated in public. It’s cost me a lot of opportunities by having this fear. It’s what might be considered social anxiety, or social phobia. It’s just making my life pretty bad – it has made my life pretty bad – due to the fact that fear of being around people has made me miss out on a lot of things I’d like to do, or should do.
