Well I did some small talk today. Earlier than I planned but I guess the best laid plans and all that other stuff
I made eye contact because I too would have make the eye contact and smiled in the past and scurried away. But this time I made the eye contact, I smiled and i waited. and wow, it worked, he stopped by me and asked me about some veggies and what best goes with what. Sadly I had to tell him Im not much of a cook, but what I do cook is edible...lol...but he laughed and joked with me for a while. it was fun
Scary but fun. I still need more work but I did ok for having no wing man/woman with me. So proud I did it all on my own.
Now...I guess I keep trying. Gotta do what I can and when my anxiety rushes toward me or I try to "run" I just have to breathe and smile
lol...we'll see what new adventure tomorrow brings me.
