I recently began counseling for anxiety; struggled with it for many years. I think I convinced myself it was normal to be that way; I can handle it. I often get uncomfortable in social settings and when having to deal with unpleasant situations. I use to get really upset when someone I did not really know, a co-worker, someone I met while out shopping or any place outside of the house. I would think why don’t you just get away from me. And I would get upset if they remained in my space. I think getting upset and verbally lashing out is a part of anxiety. Well I finally found it within myself to say, please stop. I added a few other comments but I began and ended with please stop. And I was not upset just wanted them to go away, lol. I think I am learning.
