    I struggle with it with everyone

    I do. I get nervous. My anxiety starts. Until I know them and warm up to them I can’t look into a strangers eyes. It’s hard for me. I feel like I’m being judged.

    I hyperfocus and get anxious that i’m either looking at them too much or too little

    Yes😂😂😂 it helps when I tell myself that the other person is probably focusing more on telling their story than they are on my eye contact😂

    I used to be better at it when I had more confidence

  • Allie8


    Yeah. I end up focusing so much on making the appropriate amount of eye contact that I can’t pay attention to what they are actually saying

    Ohhh myyyy, yes I do. I definitely feel the anxiety already just thinking about it. Even when I do get to know the person, it can still be difficult for me.
