- dont yell at them
- dont say you’re disappointed in them
- dont say “cheer up” and expect anything out of that
- dont ignore them
- fucking talk to them and just be there for them
- listen to them
- but seriously don’t fucking yell at them

Social anxiety isn’t “omg I hate people lol I wish I was sleeping and watching netflix!”.
It’s “I want desperately to be able to hang out with people but I hate the feeling of sheer panic and fear I get around them so I don’t/ can’t and it eats away at me every day so I end up just staying home and say I’m sleeping or watching something”
