      There is something in psychology known as the “spotlight effect.” This is the phenomenon where people tend to overestimate how much others notice aspects of one’s appearance or behavior. I had a run in last night at a concert. I when i wanted to dance and scream along to songs. I found myself in the flow, but my head would start talking to me and moments started to stop enjoying myself. Thinking omg people are seeing my horrible dancing or wondering why I'm alone at a show... but I let the thought fade and reminded myself - people have enough on their plates in life to be watching me + being at a concert I was able to say in a macro level this is a concert. Everyone is just staring at the band lol

      Yes! I don't lose my balance but I get REALLY hot and sweaty and my face turns red. This happens to me a lot at grocery stores, randomly.

      All the time! I've found that having a buddy system where I can physically hold on to someone (hold their arm/hand, loop a finger in their belt loop, or hook my finger on their coat) helps so much. It helps ground me.

      Yeah social anxiety is rough. Someone told me I was being selfish and self centered for thinking people are watching me but that's not true at all. Brains are weird. Just keep your eyes focused and breathe

      It's helps to think they are watching you because you are beautiful 💕
