This is me too.

I have social anxiety but I never had it growing up. I got it after living with my dad, he was very strict on me and believed that discipline would “fix me”, but it literally broke me. I have now an inferiority complex like it was mentioned above, am filled with shame, and get really nervous around people. But i love people, I love social life and hanging out. Also i stay quiet i dont know why. People ask me why i dont talk i just zone out in my thoughts. Im also an addict so drug consumption might be the cause for this or being heavily medicated for my OCD. Yeap yeap yeap Im in the process of moving to Canada to treat these conditions better hopefully I can get some free health care for some cognitive behavioural therapy for my social anxiety and ocd.
