Daily NhanSense – Day 16

Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 16’s Topic: Being invisible.

To follow up on yesterday’s post, there are days where I just feel so invisible and hidden from the world. I know that I am good at hiding, just laying low while everything else in the universe keeps on going.

But I want all of this to stop at some point. I want to be seen. I want to be acknowledged as a person. Is it wrong of me to want this kind of attention?

I have lived most of my life in my own protective bubble, always preferring being behind the scenes rather than sticking out in the limelight.

It’s hard for a shy guy like myself to switch gears to become Mr. Outgoing all of a sudden. And yet, I want to invest all the effort I can possibly muster to take my life forward.

Pet Peeve: Undervaluing Anxiety

Everyone deals with anxiety at some point in their lives, but some people have it a lot worse than others.

I have always been someone stricken with the more extreme kind of anxiety, especially in regards to social situations. I have always been more than just a shy guy in this regard, and it annoys the crap out of me when people tell me that I am making a big deal out of simple scenarios.

For instance, meeting strangers can be difficult for me. I can take awhile to get used to people, which leads to cases where think I am extremely anti-social in this sense.

Nonetheless, I think it is important for people to show tact for those who get a bit more anxious than the average, “normal” person. I have long accepted that I am not like others when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Heck, it is an everyday battle with some sort of anxiety-based struggle. To undervalue anxiety can be borderline insulting.
