Social anxiety is a funny thing. Well, at least it was for me. I spent my entire life being the “shy girl”. Always an introvert, always trying to stay under the radar. Unfortunately for me, the shyness built itself up into a full-blown anxiety disorder that reached its peak at the end of 2010. I reached a point where I was going to work and coming home and not doing much of anything else. Going to the grocery store became difficult and going to a crowded coffee shop became impossible. I will spare you all the long details for now and just say that some things happened at the end of last year that made me face my social anxiety and get some help. Now here I am one year and several months of therapy later feeling as though I can now finally conquer my fears and take on the world.
My dream has always been to start a blog and maybe an Etsy shop and maybe make a little bit of money on the side. For now, I’m keeping it simple and will just see where this takes me.
Wish me luck!
