Default Social anxiety make me want to die

I hate my social anxiety. I know it's not true but I feel that without proper social skills, all the other good traits I have means nothing. I don't know how some ppl are so damn good at social, I wish I can be like that.

People likes to be with people who are good at socialising. People don't like to be with me coz I'm shy and stupid. Coz I say things that make people don't know how to respond. Coz sometimes I try too hard to speak and screw everything up.

I hate myself so much. I hate it I hate it I hate it.

Since infanthood, I'm always being compared to my cousin Amy who are totally the opposite to me. She's outgoing and has a natural talent in socialising but she's stupid in study. I'm shy but get good marks in school. So what, my good marks means nothing, my music and cooking talent means nothing and my good heart means nothing becoz people love her but people don't love me. She's always surrounded by people and I'm always transparent alone in the corner.

I hate myself so much. I would rather be shit at everything else but have a good social skill.

I hate it. I feel like stabbing myself in the chest. social anxiety sucks. life sucks.

I am also socially anxious and I can tell you that many people are. Many more than are willing to admit. It can be disguised well after dealing with it for so many years (that most would just probably consider me awkward at times), but I can spot it in others very quickly. Do not feel alone in your struggle.

totally relate to your feelings... i've got a cousin just like that =-P

well... first of all, your academics and talents mean a lot.... theoretically speaking, social skills can be acquired in a relatively short period of time, but the talents and academic skills you've got take years of learning and practice. So i personally think you've got a better deal than your cousin hehe

coming back to the topic of social phobia... i hate my social phobia too... and the more i fear it the more i find myself saying stupid things in front of other ppl... and somehow i feel other ppl can sense my fear... so my theory is you gotta overcome your fear and just get outta there like you've got nothing to lose... sometimes i find that if i hang out with a social group doing something i like, such as dancing class, i'd forget about my phobia and just have fun... could you try a cooking or a music group of some sort? or maybe volunteering to show your good heart?
