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...

Main challenge: Asking people to help take photo of me.

This wasn't too hard. But I needed to pick a proper people for this. I didn't want to pick someone who was in a hurry, so I approached only people who were standing.

Eventually asked 3 people only. Wasn't very proud and my mood was not very good today. However, I felt confident. Not sure how this would be in the past, but today I had minimum anxiety asking people to take a photo of me.

I tried to...

Day 2. Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted 12th September 2017 at 19:38 by Boy

Main challenge: Smiling to strangers.

No Near-death experience with this challenge, as it's not that hard, as the first one. Not filming this challenge, as it just wouldn't show much.

It was hard to make an eye contact with people, simply because people passing by just mind their own business and don't look much at me...
However, when they do, it's not easy to smile... I need to force a smile and that probably might look creepy, so I'm not sure how good my...

Day 1. Comfort zone challenge / Social anxiety exposure.

Posted 12th September 2017 at 17:26 by Boy

** Day 1 was yesterday, but I was too exhausted to blog it, so doing this today and will be using the word "today" but it will mean "yesterday". **

Main challenge: Lying down challenge.

I can see how in some way I've grown already. I was planning to start my exposure for 4-5 days before and set a date - Monday, 11th of September.
In the past, when I've been setting dates for exposure and when the date arrived, I was like: "Well, I can...
