I know this should be on the venting topic but I just need some answers. I used to get really bad anxiety. I took therapy and thank god it helped it go away. I dont get as much anxiety attacks, I get very stressed. Well something has been on my mind Well ever since my last school year I have been crushing over this guy (I got over him over the summer but I like him again). I never knew him until I met him on the first day of school. Before the first day of school he would always smile at me, and I guess I just fell for that When I was a freshman in high school I had a huge crush on this boy. He was a junior. So there's a chance he wouldn't want to date me. I'm a junior now. So he always smiled at me, difference is we knew each other and were friends. I thought he had a crush on me. Me being the freshman I was, decided to take his politeness as flirting :'( it was really stupid for me to do that. Well one day of freshman year, I went up to talk to him. His friend then pushed him away and said "He doesnt feel good dont talk to him" so I stopped to talk to him for the rest of the day, I then saw him talking and laughing with his friends, I know it wasn't about me since I didn't hear my name. I decided to let it go. So I forgot about it. I knew that what happened could have been set up. :'( Over the summer when I had a crush on the guy I like now, I was talking to a friend about talking to my crush for the first time. I had to talk about what happened in my freshman year. He told me that I deserve better. I know I do. I made the mistake of always talking to him, so that's what caused this. After I talked about what happened, it build up more fear. All of a sudden what happened had hurt me. Im still a little hurt now to be honest. So two days before school started I saw my crush working at a store I was shopping at. He smiled at me and raised his eyebrows. I felt happy that all of a sudden my crush recognized and remembered me, to be honest I was having an anxiety attack right there after! I was shaking!. So when the first day of school came I felt so confident after I talked to him. He seems nice. I know just because a guy smiles at you doesn't mean he has a crush. I think what caused me to crush on him was that he seemed to have a good air around him and that he seemed sweet. Today I only had time to say hi to him. What I need is to find the right time to talk to him. Problem is, that today what happened in freshman year is playing over and over in my mind. Now im getting scared on how to talk to him! Im so sorry if this is so long and just sounds stupid in general. What happened was stupid and it cant be justified. But how can I prevent my stress from turning into anxiety?
