I'm 21 and attending business school at my university. I feel constant negativity about myself and how others perceive me every day. I feel an acute sense of self-consciousness almost all the time. I often feel very nervous while talking to people, even my closest friends. Sometimes, I am able to feel great and have an awesome day in terms of social ability and confidence. But those days are few and far between. The rest of the time I feel depressed and have begun to think about ways out. I don't think I will ever kill myself but I'm thinking about the concept of suicide, rather than the action itself, more and more these days. The pressure to be socially adept is huge since I am in business school and everyone else's social skillset seems to be so incredibly far beyond mine. This hopelessness is getting worse and worse. Please help me.

Social anxiety is very it is not in your head. There are many different things that can make someone feel this way. It is never bad to seek counseling when you are dealing with deppresion, anxiety or even great stress in your daily life. It can help you work through why you are feeling this way and help with coping ideas to get through them. There are also support groups for people that need to communicate with other people that deal with the same things you are. These let you hear others issues as well as voice your own and give input to what might help or has helped them. Also there are many books on self esteem, anxiety, depression, self affirmations-Louise L. Hays is my favorite for affirmations and motivation. Many good resources as well, 211info(online) and local resources in your area are there for just these reasons. Do not lose faith. You can do it. God Bless and Airhugs

i know exactly how you feel and at your age it's about as bad as it gets. do be aware that as you get older the things that bother you now will probably fade away into the shadows as you get more confident and comfortable inyour own skin.

there's nothing wrong with not being the centre of attention and the life & soul of the party - dont sweat it. youll find that on average the most interesting people are indeed the ones with a bit more reserve and theyre the ones worth getting to know.

also, you have chosen quite an inrtensive course to study for participation and interacion, but as soon as it's over you can choose to do what you like. get into a career which suits your personality and that'll keep you cool.

good luck and remember where i am if you need to talk more

Since you are in business school, I am sure you know about stocks better than many others. Do you sell when the price gets low and buy when it goes up, or you do the exact opposite??

Please never give up! Most of us are not born to be a great business person or leader, but we can learn and create our unique leadership skills. We all go through times of trials and errors ... it is just the learning process ...

You have a high EQ, and you can grow to be a great leader as long as you never give up!!

You are not alone ...

1. Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; within Thy wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from Thee; from the evil one, deliver me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

2. Prayer Against Malefice from the Greek Ritual

God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All-mighty, You Who made everything and Who transform everything simply by Your will. You Who in Babylon changed into dew the flames of the ‘seven-times hotter’ furnace and protected and saved the three holy children. You are the doctor and the physician of our soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to You.

We beseech You to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence, and machination; every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servant [name of person/s]. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and charity.

O Lord, You Who love man, we beg You to reach out Your powerful hands and Your most high and mighty arms and send the angel of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against us by corrupt and envious people.

Then, under the protection of Your authority may we sing, in gratitude, ‘The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear? I will not fear evil because You are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages.”

Yes, Lord our God, be merciful to us, Your image, and save your servant [name of person/s] from every threat or harm from the evil one, and protect him/her by raising him/her above all evil. We ask You this through the intercession of our Most Blessed, glorious Lady, Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God, of the most splendid archangels and all Your saints. Amen!

3. Prayer for Deliverance

My Lord, you are all powerful, you are God, you are Father. We beg you through the intercession and help of the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel, for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved by the evil one. All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness and obsessions, we beg You. Free us, O Lord. From hatred, fornication, envy, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every thought of suicide and abortion, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every form of sinful sexuality, we beg You, Free us, O Lord.

From every division in our family, and every harmful friendship, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every sort of spell, malefic, witchcraft, and every form of the occult, we beg You, Free us, O Lord.

Lord, You Who said, “I leave you peace, My peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy your peace always. In the name of Christ, our Lord. Amen.
