About

You ever wish you had better control of your anxiety in social situations?

You mustered up the courage to go out and take a walk today (good for you!). As you stroll down the street, you notice that the sun’s warmth is soothing, your steps are bolder than you remember, and a smile is breaking the mold of your anxiety.

Your mood is noticeably better and you feel amazing!

Then, you see a group of people walking in your direction. You try to remain calm, but the reality that you had hoped to have left behind comes crashing down. You panic:

“Do I try to avoid their stares? Have I dressed appropriately? Are they judging me? Can they tell I’m shaking and sweating? They can, can’t they? That kid is totally laughing at me. I must look weird.”

Your amazing mood is turned sour in an instant. What went wrong?

Does this sound like you? Do you wish you didn’t feel so anxious before stepping outside? Or fear that people are judging you even while you’re driving down the road? Do you worry about being awkward or struggle talking to strangers or even acquaintances? Do you wish you had better social skills?

If any of this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m Ulrich

Hi, curious readers! I’m Ulrich, an ambitious overthinker on a journey to defeat low self-esteem and anxiety.

As a result of battling social anxiety disorder for the past 3 years, I have re-evaluated everything that’s important to me. My journey has made me realize that I’ve taken a lot of things for granted, like the comfort of being oneself. Hardly anyone thinks expressing oneself is a privilege but I do for good reasons. And at times, you might too because of how much you struggle with your anxiety and finding the confidence to be active socially.

I am no therapist. I’ve dealt with few who were able to help me on my journey but most of my recovery was self-motivated.

Social Anxiety and Self-Esteem

I too have lost my self-confidence while battling against my social anxiety disorder, which has affected everything from enjoying simple social situations to dating to my education. Nonetheless, I’ve remained steadfast in my recovery.

So, if you struggle with self-esteem and anxiety, this blog is tailored for you. I will teach proven ways to defeat your inner demons, including social hacks I’ve used that have helped me with dating and being a good friend — free of charge.

Here, you will find amazing ways to cope with your social anxiety and build your personal and interpersonal social skills. Take control of your life today!

I want you to go out there and be the best version of yourself. And I’m here to help!
