I am finally putting the strategies to use and have started making progress against anxiety. In addition, I am being more sociable with neighbours and people in the gym. I am not working at the moment but that is the next challenge. I really want to travel to somewhere like Thailand, on my own, however I feel I am not ready to do it.
I have no concern with getting there and logistics, it is when I get to the hostel or hotel and meeting people, fitting in and hanging out with people that concerns me. A part of me just thinks I should go and do it, whereas another part of me says I should work up to it by joining meetup groups and other things like that to practise the strategies and get better at handling mingling situations.
Any advice would be helpful.
