This is a very, very important question.
If you think you should never think any thoughts of social anxiety again, that they’ll be completely eradicated, then I’m willing to bet you’re defining your recovery in a way that will only lead to self-defeat.
You have a perfectionist view of what recovery should look like: to never feel any social anxiety again.
That’s just way too much pressure you’re putting on yourself, and that perfectionism is definitely part of the problem.
It is all part of the social anxiety mindset.
I certainly have those old social anxiety thoughts creep up at times, and even get caught up in that old, ghost of a mindset.
Then I wake up and say “what the $#?L was that? I don’t have to listen to that garbage anymore. What am I doing?”
More in today’s vlog on that here, and more.
