Hi LP – Paul has suggested some amazing advice as usual.
You are on the right track with shame and embarrassment. Especially being ashamed of yourself and embarrased of yourself. These are huge.
I would also suggest you look at and resolve any repressed anger as a starting point. Also any feelings of being a “weirdo” “awkward” and also being rejected/afraid of being rejected.
I noticed as I worked on my anxiety a huge pattern of people jokingly calling me a “weirdo” or “you're weird” well this was actually something I believed subconsciously but didn't realize it. When I cleared all of this it was mind-blowing how prevalent it was in my life and it affected my reality. The relief from clearing it was extraordinary. No surprise I never hear that anymore.
Also clicktrack the feelings of being obsessed. Imagine being really obsessed to an extreme about doing something or thinking about something and clicktrack it until it's down to a 1 or 0.
Here is some more info on working with anxiety.
I suspect the more you straighten out your anger and self-worth the more your anxiety will go down.
