1 week ago · · Stress,
I do not how I developed it but it affects my life. I never made friends throughout school and would be deathly afraid to interact with others or respond to questions. The constant fear of what people think of me has led to a low self-esteem and other issues. I feel like my parents might have caused this on me, specifically my mother. I don't blame them but they have always been overprotective, too protective. They never let me out of the house or have "friends" over, or play with anyone. It was always just myself and so when I got dropped in school it was terrifying and I feel like I never developed sufficient social skills. I mean when I was older (like 12) I couldn't even order at restaurants because I was too afraid. Whether that's the reason, or any other reason, I want to overcome it and finally live my life peace but I dont know how or where to even start.
