    im very new to maplemation and whenever i join a new community i start to feel like ive bit off more than i can chew usually around the second or so day. ive had a lot of trouble with socializing especially in school and would get bullied a lot so id often just keep to myself so i never really learned social norms

    i want to get better though!, my anxiety was diagnosed only a year ago so im on a late start but i still get anxious talking on the discord or posting/replying to threads. im still going to try but i guess i get worried that the way i talk or act might be seen as weird

    im not sure what im expecting writing this but hopefully ill get better at socializing! \owo/

    Don't worry to much about what other think is usually what I'm told, and as true as it may be, it is very hard not to worry with anxiety. That being said, worry all you'd like! Just don't let it stop you from doing what you love <3 No matter what anxiety has you think, you'll never know 100% until you do.

    So here's my advice: Go fucking crazy. and Like Hope said, Don't worry to much about what others think. Actually, don't CARE about what others think. Be yourself! Also, it takes time to socialize in a new community. Be patient! You'll fit in like everyone else. Also, for school: It's gonna be a pain in the ass but you're gonna have to talk some time or later, and fuck those bullies honestly just ignore them.

    And if you're scared to talk on the forums or discord, don't be! Nobody's gonna think of you as weird because in the end we're all crazy motherfuckers anyway :3
    Oh also if you ever need someone to talk to you can always message meh :D

    HIHI! You're not alone, I also got diagnosed with anxiety recently!
    Take babysteps, it's good to push yourself out of your comfort zone but you don't have to go fast.
    Maybe start by talking to a smaller group of people at first, and when you get comfortable enough you can move on to talking to a few more new people.
    You can start by talking with me! I'm on discord and skype if you wanna talk :D
    It may take some time but you'll find people you can be open and comfortable with here, just like I did.

    We all struggle with that problem and we all gotta start somewhere but just be open and do whatever u want! I am sure that you will be able to meet really nice people in the community. Same with Kaffeine just start having little conversations with people and you will be able to have friends in no time I wish you the best of luck (same with me feel free to just add me on discord as well I do love talking to people ^_^/)

    I totally understand what you mean! It took myself at least 2 years (on my previous account) to introduce myself, and another year or so to actually post something. Similar to what everyone said, take little steps at a time. Heck, by you making this post you already took a huge step! After all, posting a thread on a forum can be extremely nerve wrecking...

    You're free to add me on discord or skype as well! Start by having 1 on 1 conversations and slowly expand outward from there. It worked for me! After all, anxiety may be a part of your life, but it is not who you are. I wish you the best and remember, you're not alone in this!

    I'm dealing with something similar to this same situation and I totally get where you're coming from with this. Just be yourself and don't worry about other people's opinions and go for it. After all you are the one that's you. You'll be living your OWN life so other's opinions don't really matter. If you need to talk about anything or need help with something feel free to message me!

    Seems like everybody is at a similar including me well The told thing I can tell you is that you need to keep your guard up and don't give any shits from anybody who want to backtalk you
