Social anxiety is super tough (I have it myself). I learned in adulthood that everyone thought I was a snob because I didn’t talk to them, when really I was scared to death to initiate conversation with anyone I wasn’t friends with. It’s really painful, and exhausting, to be so afraid of every interaction.
