Aaron Burstein – “Social Anxiety At 130 Bpm” (Cupsi 2013)

Text version:

social anxiety at 130 bpm first things first I’m just gonna walk right in there like I own the place pretty smooth low key you are anonymous house party guests a blank slate as long as no one knows who the loser you are you no longer ever get loser it’s airtight I can be my own man the Ice Man chill as shit I am perfecting the art of being normal I’m pure unadulterated confident am I am i smiling too much I don’t want to look like a creeper impression first impression that Campbell these people they go up great okay solution don’t smile naturally stress you are unreadable I’m serious sexy look like you could totally bag that blonde chick over there back that blonde chick magnet lunch because that okay thing for me to say I don’t want to come off as sexist but I’m also supposed to be assertive so I guess oh look look look at her look at me why are you doing shit up smiling you look like a fucking fine girl stop smiling and I’m fucking happy good timing is the most honest thing in the universe so why do I feel like the only liar here it’s a shiny shiny world after all we got any booze Nick place goddamn just a stop make me a man everything’s just so dear oh why did I practice dancing or at least seeing how I look in front of a mirror I just and then just go right sir grindin right I mean I don’t see a whole lot of talking going on at least introduce myself or music softly loud I don’t think so leaving the able they hear me maybe it’s better than don’t initiate anything when no where to go from there no no no no do not drag your drunk ass halfway across town to chickened out I’ll I’ll just wait a moment clearly I’m too cool for the scene of all this shit don’t get it even though think I don’t kind of stupid airships now it’s not being so native you promised yourself you have fun boys you’re getting late probably Hey probably not don’t definitely think positive you’re not being the ice man anymore you stop being the I said why do something yeah you guys names only have another drink and mellow fuck out I am NOT myself right this is good this is what I need..

Rather than the usual shyness advice I want to make sure you learn from people who have really gone through it. Like struggled with social anxiety for decade and come out on the other side level of gone through it. If this is your first visit to Social Professor make sure you check out the shy to social page and grab the free audiobook ‘how to talk to anyone’ which is going to turn your life around.

  1. Its not just the social anxiety part that sucks, its also the fact that no one understands. “She’s just shy”…yes I am but its more than that. “You should speak up” I want to, believe me I do…but I can’t.
    Just once I want to hang out with my family without having to spend 4 weeks worrying before hand. Just once I want to see my friends at the movies, instead of having to cancel plans because I just can’t do it. Just once I want to see someone I know in public and not have to bow my head and run away. I just want people to try and understand instead of leaving me all alone. Maybe this poem will help (:

  2. Social anxiety is when you know for certain that everything you do in any social situation is the wrong thing to do.

  3. I have gotten so used to these sorts of mental processes that, in order to keep people from staring at me or judging me, I’ve mastered being the one thing I never wanted to be: completely and totally…invisible.
