Yayy! I'm proud of you too! Good on you for doing this hard thing and finding the joy at the other end. Now you know you can do it AND have fun, even though it's still tough. Your family must have been overjoyed to have you with them on holiday. Your photos look lovely.

That's great news, Mel! I saw your photos on instagram and you look so happy and refreshed. Vacations/travels are probably the best therapy for everything. Hope you go on your next trip soon

This is wondeful!! I fully admit I struggle with this too.. I have a hard time being in a small town and having no sense of privacy so this past year I haven't been going to our grocery store at all (so embarrassing to admit!) ugh! The more closed off i get the harder it is to get out of it too

Great job Melanie. You should be proud of yourself.

Kristin, I hate going places too. My job keeps me around a lot of people all the time, so when I get home, I tend to stay in my house. I do make myself go out to see my mom at the nursing home three times a week, but I will not lie, if I can figure out how to get out of going places, even there, I will. I take introvert to a new level.

I had several years like that...I couldn't get myself to go out anywhere. I felt so guilty. I'm doing better now, but honestly, any excuse to just stay home is good for me. Funny thing is, I'm really an extroverted introvert, so I like being around people...sort of!

I was like that when I worked, too. Once the work day was over, I was done!

That's wonderful! Even though it wasn't easy, I'm so glad you were able to take that vacation with your son and boyfriend.

I've seen those tendencies in myself, too. I don't think I could live in a small town. Thankfully I live in a large, relatively anonymous suburb. If not, I'd be actively avoiding places where I'd run into people I knew and feel like I was under the microscope.

That’s awesome Mel, I struggle with anxiety around people too, it’s groen worse the past few years. I even feel awkward online and often struggle there too. So VERY proud of you.
