people who claim you cant get past anxieties and fears are fucking stupid and i see it on tumblr so much it’s infuriating
you can get past social anxiety and you can get over a fear
its hard and it takes months or years and a lot of fucking work but it can happen if you try
claiming its impossible is completely counterproductive and will make people think theyre going to be stuck at the bottom for their entire life
saying that facing the fear or anxiety isnt how you solve it is also fucking shitty. did you know thats actually one of the only ways to fix it? sure you talk about it to someone and you express the fear and get advice from someone who can legitimately help but if you’re afraid of talking and asking questions or something the only way to do anything about it is doing it because you need to learn that what it is isnt something to fear.
are you fully versed in how emotions and anxieties work? i bet you’re not so don’t convince people something is impossible because they might actually believe it and then it’s you who are fucking their life up.
