most of my life I been struggling with severe “social anxiety disorder”— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
anyone that ever met me before can tell I was “extremely shy” and “highly introverted”
It was a real battle , I deprived myself of so much I was entitled to just because it was so hard to open my mouth!
The only word easy to say was “yes”— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
my mum was a certified psychologist so she knew this was something bigger than “being shy”
she helped me fight this silent battle through a long period of time and I was gradually getting better until we lost her to cancer 2017
by this time I had already produced some of the biggest songs on the continent but I was “extremely shy” and never appeared at any award shows or ceremonies, couldn’t cope at large gatherings , could never hold proper conversations with strangers and was an akward social misfit— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
when I lost my mum in 2017, I crawled even deeper into my shadows and was practically no where to be found.— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
several attempts by friends and work associates to meet up just seemed really scary and I stayed away from almost everybody
took months of therapy and medication to get back to being able to interact with people, gradually I started getting back in the studio and getting it together— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
In 2019 I met someone that changed my life. my entire outlook on life changed like magic.— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
I learnt how to hold proper conversations.I stopped being scared to socialize and meet people. It became very easy to be able to say exactly what was on my mind !
since then I’ve gradually become better and I’m so happy for the point I am now, I still have a lot of work to do and a long way to go but I can definitely say I no more “extremely shy”— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
may not seem like a big deal but this is a very big deal for me— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
It’s been 8 years since my entry into the mainstream scene in 2014 and I can boldly say I’m only just getting started
i’m slowly and gradually rediscovering and renewing my real self and I can’t wait to show it to the world— Young Jonn (@YoungJonn) March 23, 2022
You’ll definitely be seeing much more of me from now on
