im tied between these four:
not being able to talk/openly express yourself when u want to
being misunderstood by others (people thinking u r dumb, rude, etc)
not being able to make friends, or keep relationships with others
feeling self conscious (having low self esteem or negative thoughts and insecurities)

i had to stick with the third one, not being able to make friends, or keep relationships with others. i hate that i can't keep friends. there's always someone out there they will prefer over me as a friend and leave me alone. i suppose i can't blame them, since i'm really just a burden to have around. i don't talk much, say anything interesting, or want to do anything fun. (╯︵╰,)

I probably could have voted 'all of the above' if that were an option, but the one answer I chose more than anything is being misunderstood by others and I think what bothers me there is that people want me to listen to them when they are talking but they don't want to listen to me when I am talking. Their lack of interest in listening to me leads to them misinterpreting and hearing the wrong thing, therefore I end up getting the " I think I will ignore you now" feeling from them.

^ This and the fact social anxiety can make me seem like a total idiot.

Oh, and the fact I can't hide how uncomfortable I am in most social situations.

The constant holding back/feeling unable to express myself when I want and how I want. I often feel like a quirky, cool, potentially likeable person encapsulated in fear and self-doubt.

All of it, but definitely being unable to express my identity the way I want to and being unable to make friends.

^This...definitely.

..and also the fact people with anxiety problems are often misunderstood and labeled.

I didn't answer the poll because there's more to it than just one answer. Over all, it has inhibited my social skills and I don't feel comfortable around people. I feel like I'm not in control of myself.

The positive: I did learn more about myself as I'm more introspective and I'm happy being alone (though I attribute that part to my introversion).

Worst thing about social anxiety/worrying is identifying oneself with it, and letting them become you.

I hate feeling self-conscious all the time. I hate how it affects how I feel doing simple tasks like walking down the street.
I also hate how I am misunderstood by others. I think I come across as a bit ditzy when really I usually just feel embarrassed and so my brain goes into weird mode. Something like that anyway.

I couldn't pick just one. The first is the inability to form friendships/relationships and second, the pains of loneliness

The effects of severe anxiety are lifelong. Even if you escape anxiety, you're left with a lack of experience, diminished ability to relate to others over life experiences, and little in the way of working social networks.

I HATE not being able to stand up myself and express myself when needed. Also not being able to make friends irl and being alone ALL the time.
