Hi my name is angi and I'm new to the daily strength community and support groups in general. The thing that I'm really struggling with and what prompted me to seek support is an incessant fear of people and social situations. As far back as I can remember I have been extremely afraid of people-more specifically I'm afraid of being judged, ridiculed, rejected, and humiliated. This fear has been present in every aspect of my life and has greatly impacted the direction my life has taken. Is this normal? Does anyone else struggle with these feelings? I guess I'm really looking for someone who empathizes with my situation and understands how it feels to live with this kind of fear.
