Day 8 (Final day). Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted Yesterday at 18:50 by Boy

Main challenge: Asking a girl out

Well, these challenge series were shorter than I wanted, but I will stop, at least for now.
Today I approached only 1 girl (got a "no") and that was it. I might try to do it tomorrow as well, but won't blog it, just will add the material into my video and thus, this is my final entry.

I'm starting university only in 4 days, so have some stuff to do now. I can go to some university events already and been there really...

Day 7. Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted 18th September 2017 at 19:03 by Boy

Main challenge: Walking through town centre with arms up.

I hope it counts as day 7, because I haven't been doing any challenges yesterday. Anyway, comfortzonecrusher.com program called 7 days challenge, but there's only 4 days you need to do the challenges, so I guess it's alright.

Ok, so no hesitation with this challenge, just raised my arms and walked like this for about a minute or so. Feels awesome
Tried to keep some eye contact with people while walking...

Day 6. Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted 16th September 2017 at 21:11 by Boy

Main challenge: Selfie with a stranger.

Probably first time in my exposure, when I got rejected. I had something similar in the past on my videos, but this time I got firm "No".

Two people I approached said "no" to me and the third person didn't mind and it was an elderly man.

Well, I've heard rejections make us stronger and do good stuff to our personality, it's good to get rejected. Not all the time, of course.

Day 5. Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted 15th September 2017 at 20:02 by Boy

Main challenge: Compliment 5 strangers.

I did it today! So cool!
Approached first person in about 20 minutes of walking around and finished the challenge in about hour of walking in total. Did 6 people instead of 5, just decided to punish myself for not doing the challenge yesterday

Feels so great
Continued working on my thoughts, what's preventing me to approach people, what I am thinking about. Here's what I realised in addition to my yesterday's...

Day 4. Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted 14th September 2017 at 22:13 by Boy

Main challenge: Compliment 5 people.


Well, I failed.
Very strange. While walking around the town I was realising, that this "before" anxiety, anxiety of expectation, just worrying of thinking about situation before it even happened, wasn't that bad as my first exposures that I did in the past approaching strangers.

Why I couldn't do it then? I was really pondering about it, while walking around the town centre and on the way home. Lying down...
