    Who's more brave?

    I was thinking about courage today randomly and it occured to me how its kind of subjective. Just wondering, whom would you consider braver? The person who has no problems with anxiety (not more than usual) and takes part in dangerous activites or does them for a living or the person who's...

    I need some advice

    So the study group I'm in are going for a picnic. My classmates and specially the teacher insisting that I should go. Now the reason I don't want to go is, everyone has a solid group of friends here while I have none so I'm afraid once we're there everyone is going to hang out with their...

    Should I talk to my psychology teacher about social anxiety?

    Lately my anxiety's been getting really worse or maybe it seems worse because I'm actively trying to deal with it. And then there're these depression episodes when I just don't want to get up from bed. The thing is I also have a very busy schedule where I have to be around people constantly. So...

    What is "normal"?

    I think most of us have been accused of not being 'normal' one time or another. Atleast that has been the case for me quite a few times, I've also used the word normal a lot too, without thinking too much. But I wonder, what does this "normal" mean and what does a "normal person" seem like...

    I have a question

    I think I'm going through a particularly low phase of my life at the moment. Although I'm trying to put myself into social situations, do my best despite of feeling low. It'll take a while though before I can do all these things on a fairly consistent basis. As for now, there're times when I...

    How to stop overthinking

    Does anyone have any tips on how to stop overthinking about everything or atleast control it? I tend to overthink a lot even about the sillies mistakes, most ridiculous comments, perceived criticisms or just anything in general.

    How do I stop being so uh hypersensitive?

    I don't know if its the correct term. I'm just getting sick of people telling me all the time that I need to stop being so sensitive and the worst thing is I know its true! I'm super sensitive even to the slightest criticism even when I know its abosolutely irrelevant. It can ruin my entire day...

    How to be more loud?

    I don't know if this makes sense but speak way too low to the point that people can barely hear me. I guess its one of the reasons why I get ignored a lot. The irony is when I try to be loud, I become WAY too loud. Is this because of shyness/ nervousness? How can I be more loud?

    Do humans tend to be more collective or individualistic?

    So this is one of the weird thoughts that I'm having lately. I might make little or no sense at all, it might as well be just a stupid ramble so I apologise in advance. As most of us know or at least taught that humans are social creatures. Its somewhat true I guess since we have some social...

    Do you avoid people you know?

    I do that a lot, like whenever I see people I know I always tend to look the other way pretending I didn't notice them. Its not becoz I don't like them or anything I'm just scared to go & talk.
