Social Anxiety – 6 Tips from a Navy SEAL


Hey guys Sean Ryan with Vigilance Elite
I did aq a a while back on the old IG and I got a question asking me if I deal
with social anxiety and for anxiety and crowds and I thought that was a really
good question and so I answered it and gave me an idea I thought I would do a
video on it so I put a couple of feelers out on YouTube and Instagram and I was
gonna cater this whole thing towards kind of combat that’s transitioning and
the social anxiety that we deal with coming back into regular society but I
want to put the feelers out I realize totally shit a lot of people deal with
this shit me included I deal with it probably on a
daily basis if I leave my house so which is why I bought a place out of the
middle of fucking nowhere because I don’t like talking to people and I get
anxious when I have to go to social functions so so I’m just gonna talk
about these six things that I’ve used to kind of help me power through that shit
and overcome social anxiety so here we go social anxiety really hit me hard
when I left CIA that’s when it really kicked in for me I got out I left CIA I
had no clue what the fuck I was gonna do where I was gonna go I had no hobbies
other than drinking and which made me feel
pretty fucking insecure especially when you go to these social functions and
it’s all you know doctors and lawyers and fucking stockbrokers and this person
has fucking truckload of money and this person you know and you just constantly
feel like you’re being judged because you don’t really have anything going on
at that time and for me the two questions that I fucking was terrified
of is what do you do and what are your hobbies what do I do
well I wasn’t doing anything I could talk about actually I couldn’t I
couldn’t even talk about what I did most of the shit for I never be able to talk
about and that’s fucking embarrassing to me it’s well I’m you know for the past
14 years I’ve been doing this shit but I can’t tell you anything about it and you
know I’m it bothered me and then the other one was you know what are your
hobbies well I don’t have any fucking hobbies other than getting shit-faced
from the time I get up until the time I go to sleep and I don’t sleep so those
are two questions that I would avoid and I amongst the whole slew other emotions
but and things that I was dealing with but I found a couple of things that
helped me out and I’ve kind of broken them up a little bit here two things
that get me through social events still to this day I still use this shit
everywhere I go is one I don’t ever put myself in a situation
that I cannot get myself out of to I need to find things that boost my
confidence doesn’t mean when I mean confidence I don’t mean you don’t have
to be the loudest motherfucker in the room and the one that talks the most you
just have to find things that make you confident which make you a little more
comfortable in that particular setting so let’s go through these six things so
the first thing that I do is that kind of helps me and it relates to
I don’t ever put myself in a situation that I can’t get out of is I don’t do
fucking ubers I don’t do taxis I don’t do burrs I don’t let friends
drive I don’t ride with people I want my car with my car keys in my pocket that
way if I feel the anxiety is starting to come on and I don’t want to be there
anymore I know I can get the fuck out of there at a moment’s notice doesn’t mean
you can’t take a taxi out of there but at least you have that sense of comfort
and which gives you a little confidence knowing all right if I am in a situation
that I just don’t want to fucking be in socially I’ll just leave and that gives
you a little bit of comfort you don’t have to wait on a taxi or call an uber
or make a big scene you just fucking leave so that would be my first piece of
my first tip take your own car if you get drunk leave it there go get it
tomorrow but at least you have it hotel rooms as I kind of mentioned before and
if you want to get more in depth you can click the link above and listen to the
tnq podcast I was on but I had ruined every relationship all of them and it
got real fucking awkward even with family I’m still rebuilding that and I
still get a little anxious sometimes friends family everyone if I’m gonna go
on an overnighter somewhere I always run a hotel it gives me my little buddy
we’ll just call it a safe space but if I start getting angry or anxious a lot of
times my anxiety switches to anger immediately I know I need to leave
before shit gets bad and knowing that I have a hotel somewhere I can go to it
comforts me and gives me that confidence knowing like alright if things get out
of control or if I just don’t want to fucking be here I don’t have to make a
scene and go out you know I’m fucking leaving alright it’s just
no I just I have my hotel I go there I fucking cool off nobody even has to know
why you’re going maybe you just say oh yeah I’m gonna go
turn some emails and or I’m gonna go I gotta make a phone call real quick go
over there go back to your hotel or wherever it is and you know do the whole
blue shopping code words and or little phrases that you can say to a friend or
your significant other or whoever alright but it has to be somebody that
you can really fucking count on okay I use my fiance Katie my special lady
friend and she knows when I say this is my favorite song it’s time to fucking
roll I’m feeling uneasy and it’s time to get the fuck out of there and she makes
it happen I don’t have to do shit she comes up with the excuse on why we’re
leaving or she just says hey Sean I want to go and then it’s not even me it’s her
I just nobody now I’ve got to change it cuz everybody’s gonna know when I say
this is my favorite song it’s time to fucking roll but come up with anything
and it’s got to be somebody that you trust you can’t have can’t be your buddy
who’s trying to pick up fucking chicks at the bar who is not gonna listen it
can’t be you know the football game nut that’s gonna sit there and go just wait
till the end of the fucking quarter when you say it it needs to be somebody you
trust that when you do say it they’re gonna wrap it up then you’re out the
fucking door and just knowing that you have that
phrase and knowing that you have somebody that has your back no matter
what is gonna help give you that confidence
and it’s gonna put you it it’s gonna put you you know at ease a little more it’s
gonna make it a little more comfortable and boom there’s back to I don’t put
myself in situations that I can’t get myself out of so find somebody a trust
maybe it’s just significant other maybe it’s your best friend I don’t know who
the hell it is but find somebody come up with something and stick with it don’t
feel like you have to talk all the time alright I get
intimidated all the fucking time when I’m out in social settings especially in
the very beginning when I got out about four years ago it was real bad you know
you constantly feel like people are putting you down they might not even
mean it but you don’t always have to talk quick story I used to go out to
dinner all the time when I first got out my neighbor’s mom
her name was burned and she was probably mid seventies early eighties eighties
she’s passed away now but I really liked going out to dinner with her because I
felt comfortable with her and I would tell her you know she would ask why I
don’t go out more why don’t you know go to these social functions more and I
would tell her like I’m fucking intimidated I live in Boca Raton Florida
and every motherfucker I meet is a fucking plastic surgeon for a doctor or
a stockbroker or a money manager or some badass attorney and Here I am NOT doing
shit don’t have a clue what the fuck I’m gonna do I’m a social mess and so I
wouldn’t go anywhere and when I did I wouldn’t say anything I’m not a talker
and I remember fern told me Shawn you don’t have to say shit she’s like she
said to me just by you sitting there and listening with your background makes the
entire room intimidated she’s like you’re and she’s like I can’t even
believe they’re telling me that you’re intimidated by these people
she said just do what you do just take it in listen to them you know people
love to talk about themselves let them talk about themselves alright
so and I thought about that and I tried it and I’ll be damned
I think she’s fucking right so don’t feel the need that you have to fucking
talk don’t be the person that’s you know live live live a blob that doesn’t shut
the fuck up okay just take a wrap off you know
did you feel in anxious then just take a wrap off stop and just listen you know
you don’t have to have some badass explanation every question that’s asked
and you know I mean if you don’t understand something that somebody’s
saying tell him yeah I don’t have a quote what the fuck you’re talking about
I do that shit all the time and you know it kind of is uncomfortable at first but
then when they realize oh yeah I’m talking over this guy’s head and he’s
got the confidence to say yeah you’re not fucking impressing me why don’t you
just dial it down a little bit to fucking layman’s terms I don’t know what
the fuck surgery you’re talking about here so anyways that ship really helped
me a lot drinking this is the one nobody wants to
hear but when you’re in a social setting at least how I was is I would pound
fucking vodka non-stop straight vodka on the rocks well if this kind of goes back
to getting yourself into something that you can’t get yourself out of once
you’re fucking hammered you’re hammered which means you can’t reverse it you
can’t get yourself out of it you’re just there and I don’t know you guys are but
when I’m hammered nothing really good ever happens
my anxiety gets worse eventually the anger gets worse a lot worse and I wind
up doing shit that I regret in the long-term so take a wrap off you know
how I did it is I don’t drink hard shit anymore don’t do shots of the fucking
whiskey I don’t do shots of anything I drink wine I have a
couple glasses and I call it quits there’s another thing I get made fun of
sometimes cuz I drink bubbly out of the can but here’s the deal its water with
bubbles in it now look I have an adult drink it gives my hands something to do my hands are doing something part of
anxiety for me was what the fuck do I do with my hands now that I’m not drinking
anymore well now I have a drink it looks like you know it’s got bubbles in it
looks like it’s a fucking vodka tonic or something and it gives me something to
do and I found these like they’re nobody’s business but lay off the booze
it’s gonna nothing bad it’s gonna happen by you laying off those I
guaran-fucking-tee you that and the last thing get some therapy all right I went
to therapy for I believe three years twice a week every fucking week that is
a lot of therapy so and you know what it helped me tremendously and I know you
know there’s like the the stigma behind it where oh yeah I don’t need any
fucking help and you know if you’re like that and you’re worried about what
everybody else is thinking of it you’re fucking weak
alright so just try it nobody maybe it doesn’t work for you I don’t know but I
tell you the one thing that helped me more than anything was going to therapy
getting some help and it’s not all like what you think we’re like oh you know
talking about your fucking problems it also helps you understand what’s going
through other people’s heads and when you can understand what’s going through
other people’s minds that gives you confidence because you don’t take shit
so personally you realize not everything this
asshole is talking about is directed at me in fact I have nothing to do with it
you know and that puts you at ease and then you start you start building that
confidence you know you understand you start to understand how the human mind
thinks and and look I you’re not gonna regret going to therapy and if
somebody’s gonna give you shit for it they’re not your fucking friend anyway
so tell them to fuck off but anyways those are six things that
have really helped me a lot I still struggle with it but I’m leaps and
bounds where I was and anyways remember those things find ways to build your
confidence and don’t put yourself into a situation that you can’t get out of and
those two things combined I think will really help you up if you think about it
so anyways not my typical video and I’m a not an expert by any fucking means but
uh hopefully that shit helps alright see you guys soon go grab a bubbly social anxiety I think it he’ll have a
lot more of us have it than I thought we did so I’m just gonna try to cater it
towards everyone so I’m not a fucking expert on this shit by any means but I
do deal with it probably damn near on a bait on a mother fuck fuck fuck
hey guys Sean Ryan vigilance elite hey guys Sean Ryan vigilance elite and
there’s a fucking airplane going over right now so I’m just gonna stop and
wait till this fucking piece of shit flies over my property a lot of it boils
down to confidence and when I mean confidence I don’t being in the loudest
fucking asshole in the room yeah of course it’s another fucking plane
hey guys Sean Ryan vigilance elite I put a little feeler out on

  1. You can't find a bigger hen party than a group of guys sitting around drinking . I mean this as a compliment to women by the way.

  2. Social Anxiety but doesn't sound 1 bit anxious on camera talking to millions of ppl, nice way to make some extra cash for ur shitty private life GTFO u prick

  3. Avoiding a situation is not dealing with the situation though these are helpful tips. And honestly without Christ as your foundation it’s pretty much impossible to deal with this stuff without any kind of help from medication etc. And even then it’s just a Band-Aid on the problem. When Christ makes you new and gives you his mind and you walk in him you can walk on water . Because we are given the mind of Christ and not a spirit of fear but of power love and sound mind. God bless you man thank you for your service

  5. MJust be on your own and work on yourself alone
    Be a better version of yourself
    Its better than being around people That make u feel alone

  6. Thanks for sharing that Shawn. I guess confidence is not about walking into a room in anticipation of being a beacon of shining light, it’s about walking into a room and knowing you don’t have to.

  7. Thank you for the excellent & informative video. I stopped drinking alcohol about 12 yrs ago. If I'm in a social situation I order a soda/a splash of cranberry juice throw in a couple of limes. Everyone except the bartender( who I tip extremely well) believes I'm drinking a cocktail 🍹 thx.

  8. You said you never take uber/lyft , I haven't either but have you considered being an uber like driver for your fellow vets? Take them to the doctor or to a family members house. They also might feel less awkward riding and talking with a fellow vet like yourself then with a civilian. Rather than driving alone.

  9. I always drive my own car. This struck a nerve deep in my stomach. I have PTSD from anxiety itself, and this explains me to a T. Keep being you, because it's helping me.

  10. I would often feel that it was just me who has these issues. I feel a sense of momentary relief to see videos like this. One day at a time, letting the chemical dependency go, and my solitude in the backwoods, have kept me alive and make it possible to cope. Can’t express my gratitude enough for you sharing your coping mechanisms. Infinite respect to you brother.

  11. I just want you to know you've given me some outstanding incite. And that's why I respect people like you. Thems some nice peaceful woods. Nice bloopers. That's confidence.

  12. I know my social anxiety is crippling but i've developed ways to get around it for certain situations.

    1. if you ever go out, always be with someone you're completely comfortable with. completely. that is the golden rule. if you have a friend you just vibe with naturally, you use that energy for conversation and it's astonishing how much easier it is to talk.

    2. get slightly drunk. not enough to lose your head or not be able to talk, but enough where you're definitely drunk but aware of everything that's happening. it naturally loosens you up. i'm not a big drinker, but if I know i'm going to be around women or other people and i'm required to talk socially, i'm going to take a few shots of whiskey or bourbon and get myself loose.

    3. Dab pen or getting slightly high. Same thing with being drunk. just a little, not too much. it loosens up your mind and relives you of that "awkward barrier" between you, your mind and a good time.

  13. There has been reports of veterans with PTSD and other symptoms that went away after practicing the Wim Hof method. Would mean a lot to me if you took this comment into consideration.

  14. You're a great Dude.
    What helps me if anxiety is crazy, try & remember how better your life is right now compared to the worst images from the past?

  15. Quit drinking for good after 30 plus years (active duty, college, etc.). Anxiety disappeared. My money is on alcohol being at the root of most social anxiety issues.

  16. Never had a dad. Work a shitty job for 6 years. 25 years old. Not sure what to do with my life. Girlfriend of 2 years just left. This helped a lot. Felt my anxiety has been through the roof since she left me. Thank you sir.

  17. I get anxiety around high energy people. I hate social function, crowds loud music… I have learned to regulate but still anxiety is there.
    Thank you for your video.

  18. I live with social anxiety everyday from all the TIC's in Afghanistan, the only people that understand what this feels like is the people who live with it. It is so bad for me that I walk fast in public at the stores (wife tells me to slow down wait for her) and always thinking where to go for cover if there is an active shooter, especially with the media broadcasting it every week. Finally I am talking to a counselor and it is helping me cope with it (a little) and learn about my mental thought process on how to try and relax and not go down that stressful thinking method of playing scenarios in my head. I got my conceal carry because I felt it was necessary as well because i always felt weak and defenseless in public without some sort of protection, especially now being i have a 9 month old son to protect along with my wife. Thanks for sharing your tips on Social Anxiety, nobody likes to share this.

  19. Found your channel the other day by chance. Have been binge watching ever since. Great content and funny af. Keep up the great work! Thank you!

  20. Here's one for you buddy, my dad was British airborne and sas 70's-80's, thanks to the shit he brought home when on leave from active service, I suffered abuse because of his demons.
    I have been diagnosed with acute ptsd and psychosis, this was directly because of the violent abuse I suffered. I known for a fact that children of elite regiment soldiers suffer the same, that's why very few are married and most divorced, throw that out on social media, I can guarantee it'll be very enlightening.

  21. Thanks for this video. It helps me tremendously. Nice to know I'm not alone in dealing with that bullshit. I'm annoyed by allot of the same crap.

  22. You doing fine with conversation. My problem is I hate nonsense small talk. It's total garbage! Now if someone wants to have a serious conversation about something, I'm fine. It's that fake put on that people mask who they really are that I can't deal with. Why can't people be real anymore!

  23. This is pretty incredible. No psychological buzz words, just down to earth explanations . You got a good girl too that has your back like that. Pretty refreshing coming across this video.

  24. I don’t know if anyone can agree but I feel like my social anxiety gets worse when my state of mind is sensitive and feels powerless. I’ll go through this rough patch where I feel worthless and then the social anxiety dials up to 11. The only way I can control it is through a strict regiment of working out and writing it down thoughts in my journal with as much imagery as possible.

  25. I know that feeling from exiting the house till getting back home again! I also like having my own ride, that’s one of my safe spaces. Just try to challenge yourself or work on it because running away isn’t making it better.
    Train until that safe space is in your head wherever you are. baby steps at a time! 💪
    Try as well CBD drops.

  26. You should be talking to police departments..

    They may not have done everything you have, but as far as their having high rates of alcoholism, divorce, suicide, depression, agression, etc., they probably fit this profile.

    You could talk a lot of guys down off of walls they may not even realize they're climbing. And when you say "get therapy"–as NYC police union boss recently TRIED to do–it may actually sink in.

    I appreciate everything all military (my dad was Marine platoon commander during Korean War) and MOST police do to protect & serve. But those few officers with anger issues & other psychological stuff going on, if they're not taking it out on loved ones at home–or themselves, via suicide–they're taking it out on whoever in the public LEAST resembles a member of their family, clan or tribe..(someone they can dehumanize with a label like "ni&&er" or "male black" or "perp") on the slimmest pretext.. so a black 12 year old playing with a toy gun is road up on, drawn on, and shot down in mere seconds, with no interaction or questions asked; A white 12 year old would've been approached as "son" or "young man" and the parents would've been contacted. Not cool.

    Anyway, thanks for your candor.

    ~~~~~~~~~

    Now, I DO have a theory about folks with easily-triggered amygdalas being the sort DRAWN to certain GROUPS where violence & anti-social tribal bonding are part of the deal (Seals, police, military, paramilitary, kkk, street gangs, biker gangs, white supremacists, bingo, etc.) in the FIRST place..

    Without getting into judging any group as intrinsically "good" or "bad", my point is this: Nobody winds up within those groups by accident.

    And more often than not, there's a surprising amount of overlap: a former member of one group, winding up becoming a member of the next, or both, groups.

    But at least you "fight" guys are easy to spot. It's those COWARDLY "flight" dudes with your same (alleged) easily-triggered amygdala situation, but who are too cowardly to chose "fight" over "flight" (looking at you, Stephen Miller) who can cause the most damage. Because their fear of anything not of their "clan" or tribe gets transformed into hate… much as you said your own social anxiety and feeling out-of-place gets transformed into–or gets expressed as–anger & agression; violence. And all towards folk who probably meant you no harm, if they were thinking of you at all.

    So moving out to Wyoming or an anti-government compound, homeschooling the kids, watching FoxNews only, stockpiling guns, ammo & MREs doesn't really do it for them: they need to go out and do sneaky, cowardly 'OK Bombing' type crap to civilian woman and kids (still lookin' at you, Stephen!), while masked, hooded, or under cover of some jingoistic Trumpian ideology.

    Your self-awareness could be medicinal, at a time when race hatred has not YET been identified as–what I feel it may be–a psychological disorder, whereby extreme FEAR and anxiety of anything "other"–longhairs, hippies, minorities, foreigners, liberals, women (for all the incels among you), LGBT, etc–gets morphed into HATRED.

    I had previously (since debating rabid fascists online during Clinton impeachment, where I accused certain individuals of possibly having Neanderthal DNA and thus being barely human.. I don't bother debating online these days..) formulated this theory, and bored my patient atty brother to tears, using him as a sounding board these past decades to flesh the theory out.

    But now that scientist have recently stated they can tell a Republican (or conservative, not sure which one they mentioned) just by looking at their medical scans (enlarged amygdalas! who knew!? I did..), I feel vindicated.

    Get help, people. If dwarves, or redheads, or hippies, blacks, yuppies, Canadians, whoever.. set you off: get help.

  27. I'm not going to say talking is overrated but I'm not a fan of it. There's enough talkers in the world, it could use more listeners. Love this video it's almost therapeutic listening to your wisdom. Thank you.

  28. I've thought long and hard about creating an app that connects people with social anxiety. Perhaps a form of a safe zone for us, so we at least know we're talking to others like ourselves. And maybe… jussssssssst maybe, we set up meet ups or events to hang out together. I dunno, I would feel much more comfortable meeting new people if I knew they were just as reluctant about it as I am.

  29. It's okay to be yourself because these perpetuated job roles, status, etc. aren't who the human is at all, and it doesn't determine your real human value. The fact is – because you exist, you matter greatly.

  30. The worst one is when you’re with a group of people who can’t understand why you have to leave and make a big scene out of it. Like you’re being nice by leaving quietly but they make you feel like a party pooper even with the best of intentions.

  31. This might help you – it helped me when I went on a museum tour, and realized I had to look the tour guide in the eyes for 2 hours… those who know anxiety know every second is a cut if you let it be…thats a lot of seconds cutting your heart beats up. So, i remember this quote "Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears. – Marcus Aurelius. After suffering a nasty scratch from a cat, he decided to have a little fun. Anger at cat, gone. I thought about it – if I rejected that I am going to be impacted by this tour I spent money on, and all this anxiety, what will I feel? And boom, it was gone. I am not saying I solved my anxiety because I feel it, but I don't remember this quote that often lately. I will again tonight. Anxiety, coming from a guy who was probably the most outgoing person in my city or up there, it's a mindf*ck that one can get eaten by it still. Basically another thing Id say – try to focus on what you know, the truth of it. In a social situation, there is the underlying way of acting, behaving. Its different in a bar versus DMV or grocery store. Try to remember – "oh wait, this is the way to act." For me the issue is its boring, right? Like, I want things now…I want them to be like this… neurotic+anxious is not a good combo for the waiting game and pacing. But then maybe surrender to the moment – you chose to be there in that situation. You could have said no, or stayed home. So … there was a reason you did go out. Sometimes what you want happens, sometimes it doesnt, but try to enjoy and vibe, if another thing ive learned is that interesting convos and events stem from random encounters all the time. And people are bored out of their minds too, looking for someone to talk to them, EVEN if the person is nervous.

  32. I laughed so hard. Not because it was funny, but because so much of me was described. Even the drink, Vodka on the rocks. Been thinking about therapy for a while now. I know it's time, still trying to get over the "I'm not strong enough to handle things myself." part. Thank you for this video.

  33. I HAVE IT ON A DAILY BASIS PEOPLE HAVE CAUSED THIS BY BEING CRUEL OR BACKSTABBING THEY WEREN'T FRIENDS AND CROWDS….BABY NO!!! WON'T EVER HAPPEN

  34. chewing gum also supposed to help. but basically tell everyone in the world to fuck off and enjoy knowing you get to see all that shit called the world. Imagine you die tomorrow – you miss out on :sunsets, sunrises, palm trees swaying on the beach, working out and the DOMS, sex, touching, cat memes, playing with your dog, accelerating in a car, shooting, being on a boat, watching stand up comedy.. ALL THAT SHIT IS GONE and you wake up and some alien says "delete" lols.

  35. I don't work, I sleep until 3:00 in the afternoon, and I don't have breakfast until around 4:00! For hobby I enjoy the occasional shop on Bond street, I'm also a bum who lives off a trust, and I really don't care what people think of me, so Why should you? I say live your life, and have fun doing it! ☀️🚬🎩

  36. This an an awesome video, wonderful advice….but what if you have no one – and I do mean no one?? I have kids to take care of, and we're alone. I am forced to go out once a month for groceries and to pay rent….and it's terrifying.

  37. Hard to deal with mainstream indoctrinated Demi Gods 🤦‍♂️most have never changed a tire most have never risk there lives

  38. Nice video, but these points help with evasion and kind of fuel anxiety. I just wonder if there's a way to break free from and overcome it.

  39. The two-camera setup absolutely interrupts the concentration of the viewer. Man has a message to deliver; he should have set up his cell phone on a rock and talked into it. Overly-ambitious producers want to inject some ACTION or TENSION into the narrative but all they succeed in doing is disturbing the flow of communication. Take that creativity and go shoot a car chase; you are doing this poor sap a disservice, and an expensive one at that.

    You're welcome.

  40. Hey bro u seem pretty chill but you know “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers principalities of darkness.” Eph 6:12 i think the reason why most ppl have anxiety is because the world teaches us doctrines of devils instead of what God says about who you are. That helps for me to sever the lies.

  41. Damn….Everything he is saying I deal with or do. Glad I'm not alone. I knew I was not alone, but most my combat vet friends dont discuss this weakness. Three combat tours here. Yeah I got it, and a part of me actually likes it. I feel anyone not a combat vet is just lost and ill informed of the real world. I know its bad, but I can down a bottle of JD in two days. What is it with combat vets drinking liquor or Vodka straight…Not sure, but I do it. I've been off for a few months. But I'm drinking now because I'm in Honduras on a Military contract and I need to stay sane. So I try not to go out unless I need to shop at Lowes, Walmart for some food or a Energy Drink in the morning. Rated 70%. I always carry my little 32 auto hidden on me from the time I wake up til the time I go to sleep. Might sound a bit crazy, but just like today 8/31/2019…some douche-bag jacked a mail truck and went around shooting at random people. If it was me…believe me..his as would be dead. Because I carry

  42. This video is so helpful. Social anxiety is really bad. I dislike social situations cuz its like one persons ego interacting with others egos. Theres no soul there, no heart in most social situations. The thing i do is i go within myself and look at everyone and everything as if i were watching television. Detached, less talking, observant and confident. Look them in the eyes, they are humans with blood and bones.
    Also one doesnt have to enter a social situation if they ones uncomfortable or just hates it. Egos will judge you but its okay
    There are real genuine people out there..all we gotta do is find a social situation that best suits our interests.
    Haters gonna hate, judgemental people will judge you..but youll know at least you are true to yourself and thats frickin liberating.
    One should never feel obligated or pressured to do anything they dont want to do. Its your life..live it the way you want..
    All those lawyers and plastic surgeons they may be intellectually smart and everything but usually their egos run the show. The only important thing is kindness. One can be an astronaut a surgeon or a polititian if one is not kind to others and show empathy why would anyone like them? All the praise and loving they get is not real and they dont even see it thats the sad part…

  43. Shawn, your vulnerability shows us how powerful you are. This video is fantastic. Thank you for your service, and thank you for your honesty. Cheers to you and your fiancé. 💕 Stay strong!

  44. Wow this video is very helpfull and energy opening I dont know what else to say. I haven't served an I feel the say way.

  45. The hands part is so true. Even walking is weird I need to do something with them. My situation is probably on the extreme side but somehow I manage to bury it and keep everything in. Had serious depression when I hit puberty and a few things have stuck around from it so it's an everyday issue. A warped perception on reality is a terrifying thing and the delivery in this video is right up my alley.
