Does anyone have any advice for feeling less like your being watched and stared down by everyone around you including people in their cars and stuff because I have anxiety about that like everytime I leave my house and it makes me just so stressed out and of course anxious af
Help : Does anyone have any advice for... - Anxiety and Depre...
Are you physically attractive,
Well I’ve been told that yes like I don’t wanna sound Conceded, but I’m 5’11” and have blonde hair and blue eyes and have just lost a bunch of weight. So like I’m aware I have some attractive qualities or whatever, but it’s weird because I am anxious about being aware about my attractiveness and anxious about other people’s awareness of it.
Embrace being admired,it’s natural,strutt your stuff hold your head high and smile ☝️🙂🎧🎼🎸🎹🥁best wishes
Yes, enjoy it while you have it! Aging occurs sooner rather than later! It’s fun!
You can still strutt that stuff Susan 💃☝️🙂☀️🧘🏻♂️🎧🎶🎵
I enjoy being tall...
And good for you too 🌞🍀
don't worry im with you on that one.its been happening to me for the last few weeks.
You say stared down so I guess you don't think it's because you are attractive? Just ask yourself why you are important enough for strangers to bother with you? I assure you they are much more likely to be worrying about themselves and their own lives to be concerned with you. Just keep telling yourself that.
If they really are staring at you then ask yourself are you acting strangely? People will stare if you are, so act like normal and never draw attention to yourself like this. Not saying you do but just in case you are. x
I once asked a lady am I in the way while I was bagging groceries for my mom. She was staring at me. She went on to accuse me of stealing a coupon she claimed she lost in the bagging area. I laughed at her which angered her more and then stated my case. She wasn’t hearing it and got the manger she wanted him to look at the security footage. The manager told her to stop bothering his customers and leave. Do I look like someone who cares about coupons?
Idk how that was supposed to relate to what I said but alright lmao
Coupons is where it’s at ☝️🙂
I didn’t know people take them so seriously. The woman was genuinely convinced I stole her two dollar Purdue chicken coupon. All I wanted to do was bag the groceries. I would never steal anyone’s coupons.
its a sign of flattery. If enough creeps stare at you, then you are doing something right in life!
I remember doing the staring at a woman once who deliberately pushed in front of me in a bus queue. I was in a bit of an evil mood so determined she wasn't getting on before me so pushed past her. In the process I accidentally stepped on her foot. She wasn't happy so I just said she shouldn't push in front then!
She then said with a plummy voice 'You must lead a sad life'. I burst out laughing coz it is true I do The look on her face was a picture! x
I also think that it can take time and practice to not be bothered by stares. It helped me to remember that, like Here_am_I said, you really don't know why people are staring. You just don't. It also helped me to sometimes just say a friendly hello if you pass by them: repay potential meanness with kindness.
I don’t ever feel like people are staring at me in a negative way I just feel like their staring at me and that’s just what makes me crawl with anxiety like just peoples eyes on me idk I don’t understand my own fear a whole lot I think it is some time of paranoia and I have had a couple of traumatic experiences with not so great people so maybe it’s just like I think everyone is gonna hurt me in some way or attack me and I associate that with them just simply looking at me
Ohhh, I see. That is different than what I was thinking.
I'm so sorry. To feel that way is terrible. Have you talked to anyone else about how you feel?
No not the staring thing no just kinda have kept it in my mind just like oh this is just a me thing probably and try to ignore that I feel that way
It could be worth talking about. If you often feel anxious when others stare and it's something that affects your everyday - that seems important. Especially if you've been hurt before - maybe that's what's causing it. I obviously don't know if it is, but maybe it could help to talk about it with someone you trust - a counselor maybe.
It kind of sounds like paranoia? I'm not sure. I used to think people were staring at me and judging me. I kind of gotten over it as I've gotten older. I'd rather be focused on myself than what others are possibly doing/saying. I know it sounds narcissistic, but it's what helps me.
I have found myself feeling very paranoid at times if someone is staring. I am thinking I look strange or have a blob of chocolate on my face. As I’ve gotten older it’s not as bad but I still feel that way sometimes. My daughter kinda helps me sometimes cause she is so pretty but will go to the store with pjs and house shoes cause she’s just so “over it”. Lol. She has a little baby so her priorities are quite different now.
