Social avoidance

This topic is a little personal, but I feel the need to share.
Whole my life I had issues with social interaction (maybe because of my inattentive personality) and some of the problems are getting less but I have still issues today.
I feel guilty about my avoidance towards people. I don't know, but most of the time it's my first reaction towards people I'm not sure they will like me or not. I always make myself embarrassed in interaction with people. Or I don't know what to say or how to behave. The least I want is giving people the impression I don't like them, It's only always so hard and intense to confront my fears, every day...

Re: Social avoidance

Can you look into seeing a therapist who can help you in social situations?
Perhaps that can make all of the difference for you.

Shame derives it's power from being unspeakable.
Shame corrodes the very part of us that believes we are capable of change.
Shame cannot survive being spoken. It can't survive empathy.
