Agree with @narmatakallaa29
Here’s something many people find very surprising- most people are paying more attention to themselves, not you. You might feel anxious and might be concerned that you look nervous- but the person next to you might feel the same way about himself, or she might be looking at the time and wondering if she’ll catch her bus, or they might be thinking about what to cook for dinner! Find a public place and just sit and observe others- you might be surprised to realize how much people are not paying attention to the people around them. That might then help you realize that any fears you have about people observing you or judging you might be a little over the top- those people are wrapped up in their own thoughts and concerns.
