I've had social anxiety for the majority of my life but I've never really told anyone about it. It's impossible for me to be comfortable in public and start conversations. I don't have much to be insecure about, I am pretty confident about myself in all aspects except social interaction. I'm going to college in a couple years and I don't want this to be a problem for the rest of my life. What should I do about it? I was thinking of telling my parents and going to the doctors and seeing what they suggest. I'm just not sure what would be best though. I would be perfectly content with my life if I could solve this issue. Does anyone else have any first hand experience with overcoming social anxiety? If so what techniques did you use? If not, how would you go about solving this issue?

Get a job where you have to interact with people.
Like being one of those faggots who walk around stores and ask if people need help.

I forget what that type of job is called.

Anywho, you learn quick to throw up a front of amiability.
You learn to just smile and talk bullshit.
Which is all you need to be normal.

I already have a job like that and I just struggle from convo to convo with no progress whatsoever. I could probably try to engage with the customers more

Hmm. Never really thought about it. I'll definately check it out.

Also force yourself to leave your comfort zone little by little. I was an agoraphobe for eight years. Now I work frond desk at a hotel. It's still hard now and then, but it's night and day.
