Whenever I travel with people , especially NEW people I don't know, I get very anxious. To the point where I've declined going places with others now for a few years. (unless I meet them in my own vehicle). I don't want to feel this way anymore. I get panicky that when I go in someone else's car, and in a NEW place, with new people too, I feel trapped. Like I can't voice what 'I' need or want. I believe it stems from having VERY low self esteem; I was taught and bullied by my mom to Never voice my own opinion, and she took others' side over me In EVERYTHING. Even when someone was rude to me she'd defend THEM, and have me think WHY they may have been rude. So , I'm coming from a foundation that I don't feel even human some days. I don't feel I have a 'right' to many things that most do. I'm so tired of feeling scared of going to new places for a fear of feeling trapped; like I need to escape. If I'm going in my own car to meet someone, I'm ok, but MOSTLY if its someone I already know. New people, and new places, make me feel quite nervous, panicked, and I avoid it almost always now. I don't travel because of it, and It's making my life really small. I cry because I don't even date too. For fear of feeling panicked, but also for fear I'm not 'enough', BECAUSE of my anxiety- that it makes me tainted for a relationship. Any tips on how to heal feeling so nervous to go to new places/travel/new people????
