Am I anti-social or is this just apart of my social anxiety?

I m very shy, don t talk to people first unless I m talked to, etc. A part of my wants to have more friends and do stuff with them. But another part of me wants to stay far away from any social interactions like going to the mall, the movies, and other places. And when they do invite me, I always find an excuse not to go. Is this an anti-social problem or is what I m doing just my social anxiety working? Whatever it is, I hate it.

Hi well come to HCM.
You are not at all anti social. It is just you are introvert and that is your personality,
can be changed easily by you only by developing your interest in otheres and what
they are doing, moving out with friends repeatedly will give you pleasure and gradually
you will come out of it It may change with age as you built up your self confidance.
Do not need any treatment for this. Thanks
