Looking for Social Anxiety Aphorisms
January 24, 2014 8:14 AM Subscribe
I am making a small website that will offer a list of one- or two-line phrases that will help people cope with day to day minor social anxieties and the feeling that everyone hates them. I've dug through the questions here and didn't quite find what I am looking for, though please feel free to point out past questions if I have missed them. Could you help me generate a list of aphorisms or quotations (from yourself, from well known people or from CBT/feeling good type stuff) that would be good pithy reminders to help people detach themselves from negative thoughts?

I'm looking for short responses only, not longer thought process type things, presuming that people already know about therapy/exercise/meditation, along the lines of
1) Comforting facts that prove that everybody has social anxiety and nobody is hated by everyone
2) Uplifting quotes about dealing with the false perception that everybody loathes you personally
Thanks so much everyone.
