I am 25 now and I had social anxiety for 19 years(from the childhood), I can tell now That I can control my fears and my thoughts and I am improving my self, (Will add another post on some techniques that helped me after that post so maybe it will help another people as well), but I still have a problem and it is in college, Almost a lot of my fears had gone and I am able to go to college alone with no problem but the problem is that I still not have any opportunity to make any friends and still alone and it is so boring and sometimes stressful, and especially with make a relationships with girls. I struggled to make any relationship with girls all my life because of my anxiety and fears but now I don't have so many fears and If I get some I can control it. But I still lack the skills to improve my social communications and it is not good at all. I also have problems to go to my college every day as I get bored there because of I always alone. just don't know how to make friends there, My therapist is very good and he helped me so much but in this specific problem, I have no improvement at all in the last 3-4 months. I dont know why I had a job in the last 3 month and there is a girl working with me and it was fine and we become friends with no problems, but in the college, I feel it is so difficult and it is really overwhelming as I lack the skills. my therapist keeps telling me that you can control your fear and you have the elements so go and try making any friends but hey it is not that easy. I did not get any opportunity until now. please, I need your advice guys and what you would do if you are instead of me, and if someone have these problems before how you overcome?
