Self-Confidence and Anxiety
I'm 22 years old and have always had low self-esteem and high anxiety. First of all, I have no clue why I do, I have a great mother, have always had friends, and I know I'm not a bad looking guy. I am in a fraternity and well known by many on campus.
I have always been told I have a great personality and I'm nice to everyone as well. I'm not trying to brag because I would be the last person to brag, but I say all this because I have reasons to be confident I'm just not.
I have trouble being confident around girls I like, never knowing what to say or do next to try to get them to like me. I mean I'm 22 and I'm telling the girls friend to "try to hook me up" because I'm not confident or know what to say to do it myself without that fear of rejection. It probably doesn't help with the anxiety I feel a lot and I'm constantly over-analyzing everything. I feel like I am somewhat of a happy kid and I have a lot of fun being in college and just having a good time, but I just want to be that confident guy that I have wished I could be for many years.
Sorry this was so long, but its been a big issue for me and I hope someone can help.
