30 new things at 30, Anxiety / Awkwardness

#29 Go to Something With People I Don’t Know

I’ve been very interest in essential oils for a while now, but I have held back on going to “classes/parties” simply because I don’t like being around people I don’t know, and I also don’t like having groups of people at my house 😂 

I’ve been reading online, which is a worm hole of information as I’m sure you know. I also found a great book and have been picking away at it. I finally took the leap and asked one of my yoga teachers who is a doterra rep to let me know when her next class was. 

She answered right away with “this weekend.”

I said I’d be there and then thought about cancelling numerous times for the rest of the week. 

I recently found out I have “social anxiety” which I also just thought was called being an introvert. 

Turns out I’m not the only person who gets super anxious around groups of people. Constantly worrying I will say something stupid, that I’m dressed weird, or that I will let out a big old fart in the middle of a conversation. 

I tend to get “stress tummy” I feel like I’m going to puke or crap my pants anytime I get worried about something (which is all the time) 

You will be happy to know that I did neither of these things. 

I also didn’t cancel. 

I drove to a house I’ve never been to. 

I went into a STRANGERS house. 

With people I don’t know (other than my yoga instructor) 

I hold off on doing a lot of things that I am interested in simply because I know there will be people I don’t know there. If my husband can’t come and be my buffer, then I usually don’t go.

This sounds like such a trivial thing. But guess what, I survived, and even stayed longer then planned because it was such a nice group. 

Yay for me not acting like a child scared of new people, woot woot 

*self high five* yeah man, your awesome 🤛🏻
