I'm finally diving in...I've whipped my body into shape the past few months, eating right, overcame the need for antidepressants. now I'm going out to social things and meeting new people, which up til now has scared the shit out of me and turned me into a stuttering fool. This week I started practicing being social at work. Normally I just sit at my computer and do my best to avoid people. I've noticed that the more I come out of my shell, the easier it gets. it's like I gain momentum. I went sarging for the first time last year at some local bars and I noticed the same thing...if you're not used to meeting new people, it can take a while to "warm up" and get the ball rolling.
also starting to see that the more you hesitate, the more you can get stuck in a rut mentally. it's best to just go and talk to someone as soon as you see them.
I want to keep posting to this board and get feedback...it would help with motivation and staying accountable. I'm overhauling my style, working on my body, listening to podcasts...I'm about to start eat, drink, and sleeping this shit, and maybe even have some fun along the way
thanks in advance for all the support and feedback!
