Hi, Does anyone have anxiety about listening to voicemails? I get super stressed when I get a voicemail notification and will avoid listening to it. And feel resentment toward the person who left the message! I've tried letting people in my life know to text me instead but I still get voicemails from a few friends and family, as well as a few services and work related messages. Given I also use my phone for work, would it be totally unprofessional to just delete voicemail? Or better to have a message asking people to hang up and send a text? Are there any apps that people have found help with ..read more

Briefly, we havent spoken too much when we were in middle school, i had my friendgroup and she had hers, except when she removed me from insta and outright ignored me when i pass by and say hi when she is with her friends to the point where once i saw her in a market nearby with a friend of hers whereby her friend greeted me and she just turned herself to the side so she wouldnt face me, and only approached me when she needed an information only i knew, such as the schedules of some school module inclusive classes that only we and a few other people attended and the costs of pre-university en ..read more

Next year for university, I will share a dorm with another person. I have just received an email of solely their name through the university, encouraging me to reach out. Should I? I was thinking of doing it, I do want to, but I don't know how common it is and I don't want to be weird. And what should I even say? Thats the thing I looked them up on social media and didn't see anything, as I think messaging through instagram or something could be more casual and idk. Because that's where everyone messages I guess. And I'm anxious because I'm not in any like group chats for my year, and I didn ..read more

we have known each other for more than a year. we could not go hours without talking to each other or meeting up. but now i see that they’re all hanging out with each other without me, posting without me and posting their gc messages on their stories. they’re all in a separate chat btw. im still liking their pics. the silence was sudden too. i dont know what to do. i haven’t asked why they are doing this to me cuz i don’t want to force a friendship if it’s not working. i feel sad. submitted by /u/Queen-Lexopedia [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

I often startle people because I move around and walk quietly.

I do honestly feel like I startle people by being just around a corner at home or by walking into an office without being noticed until I speak. I’m not a small person and I think me seeming to appear out of nowhere makes some people uneasy. I guess I just don’t make very much noise when I move around, I don’t have keys or jewelry that you can hear and I usually walk quietly. What are some subtle ways to “announce” myself so that I’m not making people jump? Clearing my throat or coughing often feels unnatural. submitted by /u/zig_chem [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

So, I’m very social anxious, and every time I’m outside I feel that people are looking at me, mocking me and every time I look at people and I see them laughing I think is because of me. I have no friends, not even one, the thing is that I could talk and make friends with anyone, the problem is that I don’t like them, most people are just assholes. I keep waiting for the right people to come but every time they come I just push em away because I think they are just gonna hurt me like everyone else. I only focus on the bad most of the time and from 100 people there might only be 5 that mock me ..read more

I'm on a short study abroad, and there is a large group of students from my home University. A few of them I knew as acquaintances but just barely. They all know each other and text each other during classes. They generally know each other from a student-run organisation back at my home University. Over the past few days it has been a major struggle to get into any meaningful conversation with any of these people. A couple of the girls have been kind, but conversations are generally derailed by another person coming over and chatting about one of their mutual friends and generally ignoring me ..read more
