Socially Awkward - MGTOW MGTOW Mystery Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4JyQxuf_bAHi Everyone Sandman Here,This video is brought to you by a donation from Mr. Anonymous and here's what he has to say: "Hi Sandman I heard you talk a bit about Social Awkwardness around the 8:45 mark on your video titled 'Masculinity is our future'. You also mentioned it's one of your favourite topics so I thought I'd send in a request so you can talk more about it. Social awkwardness and being overly self conscious (eg. pitch of my voice, posture, worrying what people think of me, etc) is something i've been dealing with my entire life, despite being far from your typical socially awkward guy. The part of the video where you said that '(being socially awkward) happens when you are younger but as you get older your confidence goes through the roof if you've done well in life', that part really stuck with me. Maybe my social awkwardness stems from me thinking I'm unsuccessful - I've been in trouble with the law multiple times, dropped out of college, you know the rest. After being arrested for the third time I sort of became some kind of hermit. I have anxiety problems now. I see people younger than me acting so confidently all the time, but myself I feel like i have to put on an act to do the same thing, like it requires effort. But it shouldn't require an effort. How do those confident guys do it? Anyways please excuse my rambling above bro, my first video request here lol. I would love to hear you talk more about Social Awkwardness (and self consciousness), what causes it and how to treat it. Its one of the few topics that I was surprised you hadn't really covered already! Thank you very much & I hope you have a great day, Take care." Well Mr. Anonymous thanks for the donation and topic. What I've always found is that the more socially awkward you are the more it means that you are seeking out the approval of others. If you don't care about making a fool of yourself and of what people think of you than you still might be socially awkward to the people around you watching you but you won't have any anxiety because you don't care about what people think. If you're socially awkward and you don't have any issue with it others will. That's why I believe I was teased as a kid. Not because I was acting in an awkward way but because I didn't care that I was acting in an awkward way. As you mentioned a lot of people, probably most people work incredibly hard to not appear socially awkward on the outside but on the inside they are nervous and full of anxiety. They don't want to appear weak and vulnerable because it invites attack. Or if you're dating and you're a weak male than it invites the friend zone. The idea behind being cool and confident has always been to look like you don't care.10 images licensed and paid for through BigStock.com. All image licenses are available upon request.
