Yes. Social anxiety sucks. And if you suffer from it, you are definitely not alone.

Just saying.

[And trying to explain it to people — or what triggers it or why you get it in some situations and not others — also sucks.

Because it doesn’t always even make sense to the person who suffers from it.

And our friends don’t see it because we often don’t get anxiety with them.

“I’m shy.”
“You are so not shy.”
“Well, not with you, no.”]
