Travelling Solo Helped Ease My Social Anxiety

I have always had a fairly high degree of social anxiety. In my late teens and very early 20’s I was under the care of a youth charity here in the UK named Barnado’s. It was extremely helpful in ironically grouping other young people in my area who also struggled so that we realised we weren’t alone.
