For the longest time, i’ve always had doubts in my own abilities to the point where I would put off doing things for the fear of failing or making a fool out of myself. This was especially true in my teens and early twenties when I suffered from massive social anxiety and procrastination.
I’ve since managed to resolve this issue and make drastic improvements in my life but would like to know. How does it make you feel when going through the same problems, and what did you do to resolve it?
You know Onder, I’m really glad I found this post because that what’s I’m going through right now. I have social anxiety and procrastinate from even the smallest tasks in order to save myself from looking foolish or even failing. I’ve done it since I entered high school and I been doing it even now and I will be 20 next year. I don’t foresee myself really accomplishing anything, doing anything significant, or being as great as I believe I could be. Any advice or method to overcoming this would be much appreciated.
Hi Carl, I know this is a very late response but I think I have an answer to your question. I’m currently writing a book about this very thing and will be updating my personal blog very soon. So keep an eye out 🙂
