Doing things repeatedly
Ok, so social things are supposed to get easier when you do them repeatedly. Each time you do it, it's supposed to get a little easier, and that's how you overcome the problems. Exposure therapy.
But it never feels like it's getting easier! However many times I do the thing, I always FEEL exactly the same about it beforehand and after! Scared, and like I really don't want to do it.
Has anyone here ever managed to learn to feel comfortable doing something social that they previously did not feel comfortable doing? If so, how?
