I’m finally free which means I don’t owe anyone anything.
I officially graduated this week with my second Master’s degree, even though I already have one in IT Management. I really wanted to study Psychology, which is why I moved to the Netherlands back in August 2019.
It’s been a long year and a half, but I’m officially free.
I don’t report to anyone, have any assignments or projects due, or need to log into Slack, Teams, or any other collaboration tool to see what’s going on. I don’t have any meetings to attend or to sleep through (gosh that’s happened a lot this year!).
I’m LITERALLY free. And it’s strange. This has never happened to me in my life.
A few weeks ago, I watched a vlog by Casey Neistat where he talked about quitting his filming endeavors. Now, I don’t know much about him or what he really does, but he said something that stuck with me. He said that we all romanticize the idea of retirement – how we work our whole lives to finally enjoy the last decade(s) on things we want to do. But instead of doing that, he prefers the idea of taking years off throughout our life to rediscover ourselves, and to do the things we enjoy.
Kind of like retiring sporadically.
And I really like that idea.
I feel like that’s what I’m currently doing right now, although I’m probably working more than ever on my own projects. I’m now accountable to myself on a daily basis. But I’m also taking the time to step away, guilt-free, to do things that bring me joy such as yoga & napping.
Now, with all of that being said, I’ve finally put in place my first Social Anxiety course. All this free time has allowed me to finish my taping around it.
It’s going to go live next week, I am SO excited!
Now, if you’ve been dealing with Social Anxiety because of social distancing (let’s face it, our social skills are nowhere to be found these days) then this course is for you.
It’s SUPER SHORT. Like, an hour and a half. It’s great because it’s to the point, with real exercises and insights to help you get out of your head.
And there’s a bonus.
I created an E-book that goes with it.
In case you absorb information better through writing. It’s gorgeous.
This is the course itself in E-book form with 41 pages worth of insights, pointers, exercises, and of course explanations.
It’s yours to keep and enjoy, I really put a lot of effort into making it easy to absorb.
Here are some things I talk about in the course:
5 most important guidelines to keep in mind when it comes to handling Social Anxiety on a daily basis
3 things that make Social Anxiety happy
We’ll do an exercise for each one of those things to break free from that mindset
Pointers on how to rock that first impression when you’re finally out and about
3 things that go away when Social Anxiety shows up + a quick exercise for each one
Making sure that your conversations keep flowing and that you maintain the relationships moving forward
3 things you need to know about Social Anxiety to keep it in check when it decides to show up
For an intro to the course and all the cool things I’ll be talking about, here’s a video to give you an idea of my style.
I’m literally putting the finishing touches on it right now and will update you next week when it’s open.
But before that, I’ll give you a lesson for free! Yay!
I help other introverts become socially confident. As a former
socially anxious person, I know how hard it is to be yourself
in social situations without letting anxiety get the best of you.
I created Honestrox to provide you with the best content
to help you show up as yourself confidently.
