Fearlessly walking through the fear

I'm getting ready to go out of the house for an hour or two. This is very hard for me,due to the depression. I'm realizing from not going out for so long,have hard time. But I'm detoxing from methadone and need support. I shouldn't do this alone, I know better. How do you get past the low self esteem and self consciousness? I hate being like this ok. Been silent,sitting here. Get my coat on, and go! Walk it out! I'm off!

It took me a long time to master it,but i just completely switch off the outside world.

Put headphones on, put music on, keep your head down and switch your thoughts on or off, but dont think about anyone around you.Think about how the concretes a funny colour, or how youve never noticed that theres a tree on the corner.

Ignore the people. They arent important

I deal with a lot of fear as well when leaving the house and can relate to the low self esteem and self consciousness. I feel for you. I hate that you're going through this but I will say that it does make me feel a bit better to know that I'm not alone. We can be there for each other.
