why is it you feel you are going inside your head? (what would you say the reason is?)
are you always like this?, or is it only in certain situations, with certain people?
could you explain your problem a little more thoroughly?
Hey mate, I think the reason is a combination of nervousness, too used to gaming on alchohol and worrying about the past and future (which is crazy cause my life is really going quite possitively).
Id say I'm like this around most people. Apart from really close friends (female and male), family and people who are clearly below my social status (like I dont get in my head talking to the guy at the mcdonalds counter or the really really AFC guy at the club or an UG).
Ofcourse if its a rough open ill jump into my head at once.
have you ever tried going to a great length to put more social pressure on yourself to the point of fear?
you could try to go out and find your comfort zone in regards to social anxiety, and then push it,
-extreme peacocking, don't know where you live but at the dollar stores around here you can get all kinds of stuff for this, leprechaun hats, cowbow hats, pink trucker hat that says sexy, sunglasses, fake mustaches, mardi gras beads, cap guns, plastic knight sets, try to make yourself look as ridiculous as possible so you actually feel uncomfortable, then start talking to people
-blow out sets, just try to get rejected, plenty of fun ways you can come up with to try to do this, keep telling muscle jokes and segway from each one to the next with, ohhhh yeah, you like that one? you like that one? well how about this one... keep going until you run out of jokes, you can open with ''no one likes me, can you just reject me'', open a set with the rules of you can only say 3 words every time you talk until someone else talks, make linear compliance ladder, try to run the whole ladder in to making out in under 5 minutes
-public displays of behavior that lead to higher social pressure, do weird shit that makes you stand out so you feel uncomfortable, sing in public, hump inanimate objects, walk around for a while and pretend you are mentally handicapped, put on some shitty clothes and crawl up and down a street, dance around by yourself in a public place with no music, walk around and just pick a subject to talk to yourself about loudly then start shouting it out ''TODAY IS A GREAT DAY, WOW WHAT AN AWESOME DAY, THE SUN IS SO BRIGHT TODAY, LET ME TELL YA, GOOD DAY, NEVER WAS THERE A MORE AWESOME DAY''
-honesty with girls you find extremely hot, walk around in a spot with alot of women, find a girl that intimidates you, walk up to her and be fully and absolutely honest for the whole set, don't leave until she rejects you, start with letting her know why you approached her (you find her sexually attractive), how you word it, and how you communicate is up to you, but pick the most intimidating girl you can possibly find and absolutely don't leave until she makes it absolutely clear that she wants you to leave her alone, don't try to be funny, or be cool, or be witty, or do anything, if you come off that way, great, but don't try to be anything at all besides honest
really really test your comfort zone so that it moves, the harder and more socially anxious the task makes you, the more you will see an improvement after you face your fears, other then that your list in the first post has some good ideas too
