My latest video on youtube is about jobs for introverts / social anxiety. It can be difficult for us to find work which would be suitable for us, as well as trying to get through the interview.
I've put together a list in the video of jobs which I think could be a good fit for us, do you have any other suggestions? Let me know. Here's the video :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfDjL2eJzo4

As a writer, I’ve come to accept that whatever verbal and written eloquence I possess is funneled directly into my stories. And as a result, when it comes to socializing there are no clever words left. Whether I’m talking to friends or making terrible small talk with the cashier at the grocery store, I’m going to sound like an AI in the very early stages of learning basic communication.

If you're anxious interacting with other people, especially strangers, I've got a tip for you: Focus on being kind. Not nice, kind.
"Nice" means acting in a manner that others might deem acceptable and ... nice. It enforces a mindset that is already strong when you're an anxious person: The focus lies outside of yourself, worrying what others might think, seeing yourself through the (imagined) eyes of other people. Therefore it is best avoided.
"Kind" means behaving in a manner that you think aligns with your values. You decide if you are showing the other person the respect they deserve. Which might be none, if they're an asshole.
The magical thing is, if you focus on being kind during an interaction, you stay anchored in your own experience instead of anxiously wondering about the other person's perspective.
