Do you feel as though you are keeping your true self hidden? Like there is more within you, that you feel unable to express in front of others? Do you feel like you're not interesting and have nothing to share? When we feel anxious in social situations we often keep ourselves small in an attempt to avoid attention or possible judgment.
