I talked to one of the counselors at school.

She was really nice.

I told her lots of things about myself, like how I am afraid of rejection and ridicule, and afraid of expressing myself, and afraid of generally opening myself to most people. She said that she understood, and that she has also dealt with social anxiety.

She gave me this feeling that seemed like almost warmth. It is the feeling you get when someone is kind and attentive and engaging and empathetic.
