I’ve been dealing with social anxiety for over 8 years now and my family still fails to understand or support me. A few weeks ago I had a big anxiety attack while in a restaurant and had to leave, which affected my family’s outing as well. Recently I decided to attend a festival because they are a comfort zone for me and my family keeps saying “oh you can go to a festival but can’t go out to a restaurant full of people with us?” And i just wish they would understand for me they are completely different environments and trigger different emotions, but are they right? Do i seem to contradict myself ? And are they basically the same thing because both are full of people?
