"I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with social anxiety..."
I am a college student studying engineering. It requires a lot of teamwork and working with other people. I noticed that people began to stay away from me. I didn’t really talk to anyone and I knew I was abnormally quiet. There was a night that I looked around at the other students working. Everyone was paired up and in groups, figuring the homework out. I waited for someone to come up to me. No one did. My heart felt so heavy. I went to my car and cried. I’ve felt loneliness before, but it’s never hurt like it did that time. On several times I would be in the cafeteria and see other engineering students sitting in there. I hid from them. I was afraid that if I sat with them, I wouldn’t have anything to say. Your system was the first one that I could completely relate to. I bought it as soon as I heard about it. When you spoke of your past experience with social anxiety, it might as well have been me speaking. It rang true and I couldn’t ignore that. I think the system is great. It’s a fast read, the ideas and techniques are actually helpful, and I would recommend it to anyone who is struggling with social anxiety. The technique that I use the most from your system now is "Conversation Threading." I just didn’t realize that I really did have plenty to say. For example, when I was working on a lab with an assigned partner. We slowly, but surely became friends after that.
