I need advice!! so I just started a new job in a salon as a hairstylist and I seem to have the WORST anxiety when it comes to talking to my clients and the other employees. I am so bad at starting conversations and keeping them going without being awkward and anxious, does anyone have any ideas to help me? please and thank you 😁

      I deal with that too. I’ve cried and have panic attacks about it. Um, idk, what usually helps me is trying to remember that people are more forgiving than I think. And they don’t judge those little mistakes I make which are huge in my head. And I also try to affirm my worth to myself, so I’ll try to think about the fact that whatever I think is interesting, people will join in if I just share it, vulnerability. It’s super difficult, so don’t worry if this advice doesn’t always work :) it doesn’t always work for me either

          @jkitty123 if someone makes you feel bad about yourself please don’t blame you. I do it too, so again you’re not a freak if you can’t not blame yourself. But I’d tell myself, like rehearsing a play, that it’s on them. They can be nice about it, they can do it in a way that doesn’t invalidate you

          @jkitty123 well, if they’re kind about it, that’s okay they just don’t happen to be interested :) if they’re mean about it and make you feel bad that’s their fault and it’s on them
