I've always been a quiet person but never really had anxiety or anything. I'm now 21 years old and have so much social anxiety I feel embarrassed of myself. How can these be issues in my life.
I started working 3 years ago and It started around that time. I was really quiet when I got my first job because I never had a clue what I was doing. It was difficult but soon after I was able to work normally socialise with others and I was even promoted to group leader
Shortly after I left and found a new job the colleagues I worked with were very ridea and made me feel terrible. Now I still work with them and it's much better we all got to know one another and yet at times they are still rude.
It has shattered whatever confidence I had that I cannot even talk to people at all anymore. I try and avoid all social activities and try to get out of meetings or come late so I can just stand at the back and avoid having tone talk. I find it all so difficult to deal with even though I am good at my job it is never acknowledged. I'm planning on leaving but what if the next place I work is the same. I have no confidence left in me
