Social Anxiety Quotes
Hesitating before knocking on a door
Because you need a moment
To muster up the courage
Leaving the supermarket
Because you couldn’t find what you wanted
And asking someone is not an option
Feeling your heart nearly palpitate
When dialing a number
Because your mum made you phone yourself
Rehearsing your response in your head
Before raising your hand in class
To make sure you don’t screw it up
Staying silent when sitting with a group at lunch
Because you never know
Anything you say can be ridiculed
Social anxiety is when successfully ordering a pizza over the phone makes you feel like a fucking champion.
Having depression is when you don’t care about anything. Having anxiety is when you care about everything.
When someone doesn’t text you back, and the reasonable part of you knows they’re probably busy, but the anxiety convinces you that they just don’t like you.
Life has never thrown me lemons. Social anxiety, insomnia and mental breakdowns, yes.
But never lemons…
