How often are you living in the past or future? And how does it serve you? Use the past to learn from and move on. Use it as a reference point instead of a sticking point. The same applies to our future: how often do you project the wreckage of your future? And spend time spinning your wheels thinking about what might happen? Let go. Keep your focus where your feet are. This moment matters, and if you’re not in it, you will miss the happiness, freedom, and joy of the now. Kim Guy - Life & Relationship Coach
I’ve spent the last three weeks travelling around the east coast of America and Canada. Shout out to anyone living here, I had the best time. Now I’ve come back I can focus on giving more help to everyone with social anxiety. I’ve downloaded an audio book called ‘Rewire your anxious brain’ which I’m going to start soon. Has anyone read/listened to it? I’ll pass on any tips I learn. I hope you are all remembering not to fight your anxiety when it comes up and to not dwell in negative thought patterns. The moment you realise your brain is producing negative irrational thoughts GET UP and get moving. Find a distraction. You will not help yourself but overanalysing and ruminating. ✌🏼
Sometimes you need a break from your daily life and a break from people. That doesn't make you a bad person! It's completely okay to be in need of some "me time," and any good, caring friend will be understanding and supportive! Never be afraid of taking care of yourself 🌻
I think I am starting to evolve an ED. I often change my diet, eat less, try to fast (but I always get sick when doing that so I stop it midway in), etc. I don't know tbh. 🙁🍊
I came up with this idea for a place where people just like me can talk, be themselves, not be judged, progress forward in their lives, understand their brains more.
Then I just went and abandoned the idea, pursuing a more selfish outlook on it.
I was wrong.
This is about everyone like me not just me.
Step one of getting out of that "dark place" we sometimes find ourselves in is to be kinder to ourselves yes, but what if there was a place where we could all help each other through it together.
A place where we share OUR stories.
To help positively change OUR lives.
No one is going to believe in what I'm trying to do if I'm not putting in everything I've got to make it something right?
So this is it.
See you soon,

this chats a long one so leave me a comment if you get all the way down to the bottom👇🏼😌
as I’ve gotten older I’ve come to realise that we ALL have our own anxieties. some more extreme than others but we all have them in our own little ways.
I’ve also come to realise that im pretty sure mine lies within social situations. I don’t know how I didn’t notice this before when I used to cry in primary school if I had to get up on stage and then run off & lock myself in the girls loos.. or fast forward to secondary school, where I’d constantly get nervous and my hands would shake just having to give an answer in class.. and trust me, the list goes on.
Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t a wreck. I was good at hiding it and just keeping to myself and even mastered the act a couple of time of letting the adrenaline turn into some sort of hyperactive confidence (which never lasted too long..)
My social anxiety is still there. I hate phone calls and sometimes just walking into work feels like I’m back in school again.. but now that I understand it more than I ever did, and I also am beginning to grasp the control I have on my own mind & mental health, im starting to feel capable to push myself against these barriers...
Influencer/blogger events are something I’ve always wanted to do. Now that I’m actually starting to see the opportunities arise, I’m second guessing myself. I promise you I’m working on it & I will push myself one day.. hopefully sooner than later, but I’ll have to get back to you on that one 👀😌

Rate yourself (or try to rate someone you care about) on a 1 to 7 scale of never true (1) to always true (7). The instructions are stated here:
Social anxiety is the type of anxiety that is experienced when you are in situations where you maybe oberserved, judged, or evaluated by others. People vary in the amount of social anxiety in at least a few situations. Common situations that provoke social anxiety include giving a presentation or speech, attending a job interview, going to a party and meeting new people. Please think about the anxiety you may experience when you are in these types of situations while you answer the questions below.
1. Being socially anxious makes it difficult for me to live a life i value.
2. I tell myself I shouldn't have certain thoughts about social anxiety.
3. I would gladly sacrifice important things in my life to be able to stop being socially anxious.
4. I criticize myself for having irrational or inappropriate social anxiety.
5. My social anxiety must decrease before I can take important steps in my life.
6. I make judgements about whether my thoughts about my social anxiety are good or bad.
7. My social anxiety does not interfere with the way I want to live my life.
8. I disapprove of myself when I feel social anxiety.
The odd numbered items reflect the action component, and the even numbered items reflect acceptance.
For all but number 7 ( which is reverse scored) , a rating close to 7 suggests that you are indeed trying to resist acknowledging your feelings of social anxiety. If you're score is close to 7's on the odd numbered items, it means that you're ready to commit to reducing these feelings.
I hope this helps you understand Social Anxiety!

Today was one of those days.
The day's where you wake up and go through the motions while you feel an unwelcome familiar sensation creeping its way into your every moment.
Today I am exhausted.
I am exhausted due to fighting to be stronger than I feel.
Today i feel grateful.
I am grateful because even though I feel like I was just surviving, I know I did a lot more than that. .
Today im not okay, but that's okay. .
