Look around you at all the people connecting and socializing. And you are just standing here alone, like a social reject, again. Nobody likes you. Why would they want someone like you around?

For years, social anxiety whispered its way into Natasha Daniels’ mind and quietly sabotaged her life. Even while working as a therapist, helping children to cope with their own anxiety, insecurity lurked in the shadows pointing out the stares, the rejection, the vicious comments from online strangers.

In this memoir, Natasha takes on the therapist’s role with her past selves to drag her social anxiety into the open. From feisty Miss 6, lonely Miss 14 reeling from a tumultuous childhood, and defiant Miss 18 pushing back against a world where she didn’t fit, through to her present self, Natasha explores the way social anxiety colored her experiences and finds healing through self-acceptance.
