i just had a good talk with my mom while walking this morning. she had some good ideas for my 'two selves'. she said to think of the self i don't like, the one that clams up in social situations, as a little girl that is terrified. she said to imagine myself holding her hand and comforting her while in situations that make her scared. she is part of me, no matter how much i thought i hated her. if i comfort this little girl and treat her with love, forgive her for being shy and quiet than maybe i can overcome the social anxiety a little bit.
