anxious of approaching people at the new place
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

Pardon me for venting a little bit. So, I just moved to a new place. I was excited before, since I can try do things on my own, try to be more responsible as an individual and get to know my neighbors in the same floor. It's been five days since, and I found it hard to greet the people. I've became more reclusive as I kept finding ways to avoid people, running away from chances that I could have used to talk to them. I'm just, not sure how to act natural and even then I'm still anxious how I can get to know them. I know that there's no harm in trying, and even then failing is okay too. But like, I can't make push myself to actually initiate an approach and be brave. It's lonely.
