What we're about
I created this group as an opportunity for people in Mississauga (and surrounding areas) who are shy or socially anxious to get together and socialize in a safe, non-judgmental setting. As well as share their experiences with shyness/social anxiety and offer each other support. There is a shortage of decent meetups in Mississauga and up until recently, there were absolutely no groups in Mississauga for shy and socially anxious persons.
I've been an active member of the Toronto SA meetup scene (ie. Toronto Shyness & Social Anxiety Support Group, Out of your Shell, Shyness Workshop) since January and I find it tedious making the trip to Yonge/Eglinton and especially downtown Toronto every week to get to those meetups. In a city of 730,000+ people, I see no reason why there shouldn't be similar meetups in Mississauga and this is why I felt motivated to go ahead and create a Mississauga shyness/SA meetup group of my own. This meetup group has been my brainchild since I joined that Toronto shyness/SA scene.
I look forward to meeting new faces and also familiar faces if I met you before at another meetup group!
