if one developed some sort of irrational phobia, like fear of flying or fear of anything thats really mostly harmless, the best thing for that person would be super-exposure to their fear: If a person fears flying, stick em on a plane until they finally calm the fuck down and can relax... Well if that's true, then the best way to beat social phobia's would to place ourselves in super-social situations. Call things as you see em and dont think about it just say it. Speak up in class EVERY time. Talk to strangers, make speeches. Try and make some bitches laugh, or try and make things make things awkward... really ignore all your anxiousness and do it anyway. Even if she goes wrong, you say the wrong thing or you're misunderstood. People circle around you, everyone's staring. Fuck it, that's good. Keep it going, make youself look like a fuckin fool. And then when that's over do it again. I doubt it would ever get that bad but you know what I mean. The thought of this sounds god-damn terrifying, but I guess it's supposed to be. No pain, no game.
