A couple of weeks ago I met up with some people from the UK social anxiety forum and we went to the cinema together. I was quite pleased with myself that I’d managed to do something sociable for the first time in absolutely ages. Anyway, I didn’t find that too challenging because there’s not a lot of interaction when you go to watch a film.
Yesterday though, I met up with the same couple of people and we went for a walk in the park and sat around and talked for a couple of hours! I was quite amazed that I managed to speak a lot (for me..) even though I was the most quiet of the 3 of us. It felt pretty strange to be out in public with people, I actually managed to relax for a few brief moments. It may not sound like a lot, but I am quite proud of myself for managing to do it 🙂
