If you're someone who lives with social anxiety, you may get frustrated when your experiences are downplayed as you just being an introvert.

That's what inspired YouTube star Jessie Paege to tweet describing what having social anxiety is like to her. People with social anxiety may fear being judged, criticised, laughed at or humiliated in front of others, even in the most ordinary, everyday situations.

Trying explaining it to school and getting understood…instead they just prefer to say she’s an uncooperative spoiled brat 😢

I just got told I could go to hell because people were sick of me refusing to involve myself and then complaining about my loneliness 😥😭

Had it my entire life. It is part of being an introvert but not wanting to be..it's part of being shy but not wanting to be...it's just very difficult when it comes to social events, family or work related..it doesn't matter who...it's with you all the time...being a team member is rather difficult at times 😔

I am 71 and have suffered from social anxiety all my life. The advice given to me many times is to "just do it--- it will get easier". It doesn't get easier to start to "just do it "

It's not being able to bring yourself to write an assignment because you know it will be judged by so many people and brought out again and again 😔

Social anxiety for me involves a lot of self-sabotage. I set myself up to fail so I don't have to face the world. And then I feel like a constant failure. It's a vicious cycle.

I have 2 sons with Selective Mutism. Severe social anxiety. 😯 we are constantly working on anxiety and going outside our comfort zones. Its a life long condition learning and teaching strategies and skills and tools will help them to cope and manage. Although more understood and accepted these days than when I was growing up! I had no one to talk with about it till I was about 15. I had no therapies for it. As adults, We do tend to stick with those who understand it more and keep our social lives within our comfort zone and control.

My Grandson who I have been with today suffers this. Makes me very sad and just want to know more and more so I can help.

I quite often get told I am trying to hard. I have come to realise as trying to be more extrovert so I don't get humiliated.

I never knew it existed till I was hospitalised and had to do group sessions on topics..it was like someone switched the light on for me ...finally understood why I can’t go too new places , even everyday places are struggles , right down to crossing the rd ( because people are focussed on me 😒)..it certainly is something that people struggle to get an understanding on ..makes you feel like a bit of a freak 😞

"omggg I love netflix and I hate everyone" might not be social anxiety...but it is me!

Exactly! well said....

Well said Jessie Paege 🙂

Mmmmm. Know that feeling so well.

Couldn’t agree more.

Know the feeling well!

Living WITH BPD is all that

Exactly

Wish you brought more awareness to borderline personality disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder
