A few confessions of a Socially Anxious male

Posted 15th September 2018 at 22:27 by healingsoul

So I live in a council estate. I grew up there but never played outside. As a result, mixed with bullying growing up, I am scared or anxious of certain people on the estate and avoid certain areas.

Recently though I have began challenging my fear, since rationally it is an irrational one. Today I walked past a group of male youths who hang around in a corner of the estate. They look intimidating, like roadmen, but they can't be that bad. I got the feeling that they spoke about me...

A New Chapter + things I learnt from my colleagues.

Posted 9th September 2018 at 03:16 by healingsoul

I left my job last Thursday to go to induction day at my new college where I will be studying an Access course in Social Science.

I learnt a lot from my uni dorm housekeeping job. Not that much when it comes to the job, but a fair bit about people. I didn't make many friends there but did make a fantastic one I will call my aunt.

My aunt was the opposite from me loud, happy, funny, assertive, relaxed and very good at reading and getting on with people. She wasn't afraid...

How does a man be assertive without being creepy?

Posted 24th August 2018 at 19:54 by indigo777

I was reading some posts on an anxiety forum and several men said they almost felt like a creepy weirdo for approaching women, like they had no right to do it, like it was even a form of harassment. I also felt the same way. I think I actually found it degrading that as I was male I was expected to approach girls when I had the social skills of a dead sloth.

You can't please everyone

Posted 14th July 2018 at 15:51 by healingsoul

So at work I thought I had made good friends with this person who is the complete opposite to me. I really liked her and when we first got on, she helped my confidence a bit as it seemed like she noticed me, was interested in my well being and didn't judge me for being in a bad mood as most people do. She also use to tell me that she would invite me to her house and that I am like her nephew.

Fast forward to this week and it's like she never eats lunch with me again. I have noticed...
