For myself, I had very bad "social phobia" particularly in college. I'm not here to knock on religion, perhaps it is just the way I took it, but I refused to interact with others for fear of being "tainted" by their mindset. This became so bad that I had a panic attack simply walking to class one day. Eventually, I began to realize what a barrier my attitude was in my life and I began to change it. At first this was hard because I felt I was "lying" to myself. Eventually the message of how I perceive others influences how they perceive me began to sink in and I realized I could create any kind of relationship I would like with any particular person (so long as they compled, but why wouldn't they? I am friendly, nice, outgoing, and charming ). Now, I have zero social phobia. I am often the life of the party and many people irl and on this forum perceive me as an extravert. What's your story?
