But as the world begins to open, I think a lot of us are recognizing that our social skills are a little bit….rusty!  In today’s episode, we are talking about how to function as social beings again!  We thought it would be helpful to do an episode on how to prepare and deal with potentially anxious social situations that are coming up and how you can do it confidently!  In this episode, we cover:
