Every time I go outside I worry about what people think of me, or what they will say about me. I have these thoughts even when I'm at home. People following me, laughing about me, taking pictures and videos and turning me into a joke for the world to laugh at. I'm scared. I have these thoughts all the time. I can't live a normal life because of this.

Have you been able at all to work with a therapist on this? I imagine this could be very helpful in pin pointing the origins of your fears and learning how to release them so you can move more comfortably in the outer world. Therapy is what I would recommend.

Thank you. Yes, I've been going to therapy again and it always helps to talk to my therapist. I just still find it so scary to go outside because I know people could laugh at me. Then there are the worries of photos or videos of me being shared and laughed at. It happens to other people, so I'm worried that it will happen to me.

People suck. Not all, but probably half. More than anything, that's what I've learned from 2020.

I believe that social media was a mistake. Not everyone is bad of course, but I feel like most of what social media brings is really scary and I am worried about the future.

A lot of people really enjoy being rude. They enjoy laughing at others and talking about others. They enjoy feeling powerful as they get into their silly groups and make fun of someone. I won't let this control my life anymore. I am tired of bullies. I am tired of rudeness. I have trouble standing up for myself, but I'm going to try to stand up for what I believe in.
