Whenever I am in a group, I feel awkward. I feel as if people are speaking bad about me, mocking me, or ridiculing me. In short I feel everyone is criticizing me. This is a feeling of insufficieny, I feel low, down in self-esteem. What do I do to boost myself up, and feel more confident? This thought is pulling me into depression.
Slowly I am starting to fear getting into meetings or interactions with others. This will affect my work, what do I do?
