This time, I didn’t look at the floor & politely demure, this time, I smiled & happily accepted an invitation to an actual celebration, however i’m still sort of in awe that I went to a celebration.
I’m a 32 year outdated man & this was the first time I have ever enjoyed myself in a social get together, then prior to using cannabis products, I had stopped going to any sort of social function! For years when I was younger, I would force myself to go be incredibly freaked out at a celebration because that’s what normal people did… What I didn’t realize until much later was that I had a crippling social anxiety.
Well, I have anxiety in general however the social anxiety was what was causing me to isolate more & more over the years. I tried the meds & the therapy. I still am in talk therapy & am entirely particularly getting something from it now that I’m also using marijuana. The holistic therapist that I started seeing was the one who commanded going to the local cannabis spot for help. She thought that sativa strains might be just the thing to help me understand & face my social anxiety a whole lot better… And she was absolutely correct. There is something just so immediately safe about sativa products for me. When I use these cannabis products, I immediately feel an uplift of calm that also comes with something I’ve never had. That would be confidence. It’s been remarkable. After just five months of holistic therapy & the sativa strains, it felt completely natural to accept an invitation to that celebration. Sure, I was a bit upset however that’s where it ended. That celebration was so much fun & my face hurt the next day from smiling so much.
