New Places is Unfamiliar Faces

Whenever you visit a new place you always feel lost. For me I feel unwelcome. New places means a lot of unfamiliar faces. To me this is my worst nightmare. Whenever I visit somewhere new I get anxiety and I need to always find someone to accompany me.

Whenever I go to a new place I always feel so lost. I feel as though I won't know anyone and therefore the people around me will look at me differently. I am not the most friendly person and I am not the most outgoing person when I am in a new place, I am quiet and shy.

To me going to a new place is like jumping off a bridge and not knowing if you will drown or not into the river below. That may be a little extreme, but that is how I feel. So to me going to a new place is pretty much out of the question unless I know someone. If not the anxiety will eat me away.

However, this year I told myself I wouldn't say no to doing new things. I am going to push myself out of my comfort zone. I am going to try new things and go to new places. I am going to challenge the anxiety I get. I am going to change things that I need to in order to prepare myself for the future I want. If I plan on moving to a new state for work after I graduate I need to get over the anxiety I get of going to new places.

In reality, I am not being looked at differently, I am not lost, I am not new, I am just learning where I am and the new surroundings.

Do you like going to new places? Do you get the same type of anxiety?
