My social anxiety revelation

So, I have been suffering with social anxiety for as long as I can remember. I believe the childhood abuse from my father lead to me having it. I have nightmares of him physically and psychologically abusing me at least once a month. I get very upset and shaken when seeing videos of child abuse, or any abuse, or whenever I hear him speak loudly and angrily to someone. Those bad memories just flash back up. Thankfully he is kinder to me now. And today, while thinking about my past, I realized that everything I am afraid of people thinking of me are the things he called me and told me I was as a child. I guess that after years of being told it, I started believing it. I believed all the lies. The lies that I am not good enough. When I am good enough. Nobody actually hates me. I am a beautiful person.

Today begins my recovery.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I am so sorry your father abused you. You are amazing to be positive after experiencing that. You sound very strong.
