Anxiety in clubs! Please help

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey! This may seem like a really small problem, bu I really need help.... So, I don't know if this happens where you are, but where I live people start to go to clubs around the age of 15, I'm 16 now and I went to clubs 2 times. In the first time that I went, I had a panic attack. The second time that I went (to the same club) I stayed outside most of the time, and now I have this friend's birthday on saturday, ant it's on the same club and I'm getting really anxious. Sometimes people invite me to go, and I just say no most of the times, but this time I decided to say yes, and I don't know if it was the greatest decision. I really need some advice to not be so anxious in this situations (if that's possible)!

Thank you,

Marta

    Social anxiety? Are you on any medication like antidepressents? They help sometimes.

    Maybe you did not really want to go in the first place you are 16 clubs can be overwhelming, loud and kids that age are a bit cliquet and obnoxious and flirty..maybe yoga would be a lot more comforting to you.

      I don't want to go, but unfortunely it's what everyone does at my age, and I just don't want to miss out on my friend's birthdays because I don't like where it is sad Thanks for the advice!

    Everyone is a little nervous to try something new at first. Honestly, 16 seems way to young to be going to a club. It is an environment where most people get anxious- loud music, flashing lights, people everywhere.

    If you do end up going just focus on your breathing and repeating positive words to yourself. Being anxious is nothing bad, everybody is anxious in new environments... you just have to overcome it and remember- it won't last forever.
