I just wanted to thank you all because I think everyone supported me in some way for me to get to this point. I've had something called Selective Mutism since I was in kindergarten. This prevented me from talking at school, or anywhere in pubic because of anxiety. I used to not be able to ask for help, order my own food, or even wave back to people. I thought that the least I could do was to smile back to your greetings. I got better every year with a lot of help from people around me. I've gotten more and more comfortable at school, and around people, even in public areas. I was able to have a conversation with a stranger in the bullet train, order my own food without any help, and most importantly, talk in front of everyone today. Since I got into college, I've been talking to more people, and I've been talking to my teachers... when I have to, and I think I'm getting even better, and I've been making more friends and talking to them. When I go to public places and when people ask me something, I can reply with my own voice... (Who else's voice could I use?!) or ... I've been also talking to people on the phone, which I never really done before... because it was still hard for me to talk when they're not in front of me. Making eye contact while I'm talking is hard for me still because ANXIETY. This video wasn't anything for you guys to feel pity for I just wanted to do this because this is what I wanted to do for a long time. And I hope you guys liked it and if you have any more questions or anything at all, I can either make a video again or you can message me. Thank you!
