22 Times Tumblr Perfectly Summed Up Social Anxiety

I’m awkward, but I’m not Zooey Deschanel “adorkable” awkward. I’m “50 mg of Zoloft for social anxiety” awkward. It’s far less marketable. You know that feeling when you’re getting your picture taken and you realize it’s actually a video? THAT’S HOW I FEEL ALL THE TIME. No one will ever describe me as “comfortable in my own skin”. Le sigh. Here are a few times Tumblr totally nailed what it’s like to have social anxiety:

1. Ordering stuff is hard

2. Seriously, though
