Tonight I went to a party w/ 60 people, and I got some social anxiety, and I wrote about it. I went into my childhood and how that affects my people skills today... I'm not gonna do that anymore.
It's okay to feel a bit nervous when surrounded by over 50 super intelligent, interesting, accomplished people. I bet most of the people there tonight felt a little nervous too. I'm probably totally normal. I don't need to tell the world some deep personal story about my past, to justify having human emotions.
Sometimes I do new things that scare me, and I get worried that it's not the norm... maybe it doesn't matter. As long as I'm willing to consistently face my fears, and as long as I can be kind to myself while I'm doing it, that's what's matters!
