School shy, fear rejection

Posted by Budgie on August 15, 2003, at 21:04:16

Hi there,

Some illuminating things have been coming out in my sessions lately- like just how incredibly deep my fear of rejection runs and how far back it goes. I had also forgotten how much I dreaded my first weeks of preschool and kindergarten, and moving to new schools. In a little over a week, I'll be starting my senior year in college, and I'm still dealing with anxiety over it.

How have other people dealt with these issues? I'm sure fear of rejection must be almost a universal thing with people suffering problems like ours. School shyness just seems like early stage social anxiety, which I've suffered from full-blown for 7 years now. What techniques or changes in perspective have people found helpful, besides and in addition to meds, for SA?
