Fear of walking infront of people (being first)

by Emma
(Northern Ireland)

ive had this fear of walking infront of people all my life and its getting worse and worse, people think im attention seeking and its really starting to bug me.

My problem is that i cant go first, seriously! For example if i was at my boyfriends house and we went downstairs for a cup of tea i would have to stop, let him walk past me and go down the stairs first and ill follow.

If im walking into a shop with friends i stop and let them go first. If im out clubbing and we decide to go to a different dance floor and im nearest the door i have to stop and let my friends lead the way.

i Dont understand it, its very weird but it scares me to much to go first. HELP!
