> Cass your post was interesting. I've always thought of you as outgoing. Best wishes O.

Hi Oddzilla,

I am actually much bolder than I used to be. I am sometimes really surprised when someone refers to me as outgoing. I guess I've made a lot of progress. However, feeling too self-conscious is a big problem for me at times. When I feel too self-conscious, I tend to louse up whatever I'm doing. I'm not in the flow of things, so things just go wrong. But my social anxiety has eased up in part because I now try to socialize with people who have similar world views to my own. The more I am true to myself, the less I socialize with people who I feel are shallow, insensitive or arrogant, in other words, people who I feel out of place with and whose company leads me to feel demoralized. Lately I've felt much more confident in my own goodness and much more appreciative of the goodness I find in others. I know that the cure for social anxiety is more complicated than just being true to oneself. I don't want to sound preachy or simple. I just think that the recent strides I've made in social housekeeping has added to my recovery and has added to my sense of well-being in general.
I'm curious about what gave you the impression that I was outgoing. It might be hard to put your finger on, but if you can, will you tell me?
Best wishes to you too.
Cass
