Thanks Lydia — shit terrified of social interaction I think you found the right person. I grew up stuttering and basically didn’t speak unless I was really comfortable with someone and still have social anxiety despite being a communication coach. But at age 23 I took a sales to get over this and the world opened up. You don’t have to take a sales job but what really helped me was making the decision to go first. If I had something to say I went first. If someone looked interesting — I went first. I could write a book about this question and I’ll tag you in a future post about this Lydia Lilley but in some of my old posts I go into ways to be more likeable (I hate that word) and meet new people.
