Just thought I'd say hello
« on: December 26, 2013, 10:30:15 AM »
Hi there -

So I figured the the first step to figuring this all out is to start posting!

I'm a young adult currently living with anxiety on a daily basis - I get very anxious in social settings of all kinds (I'm not shy by any means but I would catagorize myself as a true introvert - I often feel very drained after dealing with people). I also am finding more and more often that I'm not able to hold my tongue when I should because I loose patience with people very quickly. I have ridiculously high expectations for all people which I KNOW no one can live up to - but it bothers me when people don't.

I guess this is why I feel like I need to start seeking help / advice - I know that I'm not perfect and I know no one else is, but I'm constantly beating myself up and other people up for not being what I want them to be. It's not fair to anyone including myself and I don't know how I got here.

Not sure what else to say or where to go from here.

Hope everyone has had lovely holidays!

Hello emes13 and congratulations on taking that first step  :winking0008:.
Welcome to Anxiety Zone!

Here you will find people who fight similar battles and share one goal: to live anxiety free. I'd suggest you take a look at the different sections/forums and find the ones you have interest in. You can continue there; feel free to post or open new topics.
Once you've made 3 meaningful posts, you will be able to join us in the chat, which is open for members over age 18. Always something going on in there. Good place to get a quick advice or just vent.

Our perfectionist tendencies can and do keep us from living full, happy lives. But there are ways to get pass them. And together we're stonger. Once again, welcome aboard!

As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.

Hi Emes13,
I'm new too :) So hopefully we can help each other get settled. I find social situations difficult too so I can completely relate to that.
I have high expectations of myself and get frustrated because they are impossible to live up to.
Happy holidays to you too :)
