if you still like your crush after they get their hair cut that is how you know you’re fucked
I am sickeningly shy. I really have to push myself into situations where I know I am going to feel incredibly anxious in, just because otherwise I would be missing out on good times. When I do things that are outside of my comfort zone, I feel really good afterwards, like I’ve achieved something. That helps a lot I think, it gives me confidence to do it again.
I’m really not somebody that you should turn to for advice though because if I don’t drink before I go out (during the night, to a club or party or something), I get ridiculously nervous and I don’t have the greatest of times because I feel extremely self conscious and can’t do what I really want to do. So I drink. I always, always drink. And I don’t think that’s the type of thing I should be encouraging other people to do, because it isn’t really a fix. It does me good though. I can happily go out by myself if I’ve had a few drinks, I can approach people and start conversations, I do things I wouldn’t usually do (good things), and now I have some amazing memories with some amazing people.
Ask somebody to go out with you though! An online buddy or a real life friend. : )
