To be honest just compare yourself with what you were yesterday. For your anxiety, start slowly by having small talks with people whom you feel comfortable with
@hashbrown Can you please give some ideas to talk with new people please
First think you should do is be brave and worry less about the outcome then try initiating a conversation by talking about something you both have in common.
Don't compare yourself to others. You're special and unique in your own way. Try to talk in front of the mirror in a confident manner and practice. Slowly start interacting with people and don't be so self conscious. There's nothing to be worried about. Don't ever underestimate yourself. Try to be a better version of YOU :)
