Hi Twinkle ToesI've always had a fear of people since childhood more then a fear of other kids - mainly cos I know what people are capable of. Bullying made my early life hell.
I moved somewhere more remote as soon as I got the opportunity, alot more elderly people (I feel less threatend by them mostly) I have physical disabilities myself so know I wouldn't be able to defend myself now. Haven't been out socially since before the first lockdown and the amount of violence thats out there right now is not helping me want to return to going out in public spaces! ..and I hate gossip too!..and old folk are still guilty of this talking amongst themselves and some on SM discussing you there.
Used to do social media but now find that quite anxiety producing as the current trend seems to be just mindlessly attacking other people's posts. It's hard to know what you're allowed to say or do these day that won't be seen as 'bad' by the woke/snowflake brigade. It's easier to say and do nothing and keep to myself.
I can relate to what you are saying here.
I have a fear of others, particularly being seen by others.
If I could spend the rest of my life speaking from behind a mask, I would. Ironically, I would be much more myself (because less anxious).
