It’s not easy being a generally introverted, anxious type of person. Most of us find our ways and our outlets where we feel comfortable breaking out of that, but we’re still probably going to wear our giant headphones as we walk around town with nothing playing in them, just to dissuade anyone from thinking we might want to interact.
Luckily, there are lots of ways to cope, and as with most things, the number one coping mechanism available to us is memes.
So let’s look at some memes courtesy of Reddit which will help us process our anxiety, anxiously.
10. Form your words
But when it DOES happen to hit right, you feel like a superhero.

8. Give me compliments
But also please don’t because I have no idea how to process them.
Uh.. from socialanxiety
7. Which is which
“You’ll worry less what people think of you when you realize how seldom they do.”
6. Here and now
It’s gonna take quite a while to prep for this.
Plus thinking about how you sounded afterwards from socialanxiety
5. The best laid plans
Why do I do this to myself? How have I not learned?
4. The cycle
You think the makers of Spongebob ever thought he’d end up getting used like this?
3. Sending signals
Also I don’t wanna use any apps, so just figure it out everybody.
2. The golden ratio
I can’t look this in the eye.
1. Game over
Some things are just the last straw.
