Social anxiety can be debilitating. I know how hard it is to want to socialize and be friendly with others, but simultaneously feel like you can’t. A lot of the time, it just comes down to not knowing what to say to someone else. I mean, we anxious folk like to play out scenarios in our head, and if we can’t even think of what to say after approaching someone, we’re even less inclined to talk. I sometimes wish I had a batch of conversation starters to pull from whenever the anxiety takes over and I can’t seem to think of anything. So, I’m making one so that anyone can reference these random conversation starters whenever they feel like they need them. Let’s get into the list!
