You have the obvious symptoms of avoidant personality disorder
Did you notice that you have problems in interpersonal relationships because of insecurity and constant fear? You don't want to build close relations even with those you seemingly trust. Criticism and disapproval hurt you badly and the slightest demonstration of negative evaluation of your actions deprives you of your will to do something at all. If these symptoms do bother you, it's better not to wait too long with treatment and visit a dedicated expert.
Avoidant personality disorder at the early stage
Most likely, you just a distinct introvert. But sometimes the fear and insecurity add to the natural tendency to be alone, which can have a negative impact on interpersonal relationships. It's enough for you to support durable relationships with close ones but you reluctantly let people who you didn't manage to know well get close to you. And, partially, the reason is that you're afraid of criticism and disapproval. If these symptoms do bother you, it's better not to wait too long with treatment and visit a dedicated expert.
You have no symptoms of avoidant personality disorder
Most likely, you had a hard week, that's why you're insecure about your abilities and very sensitive. But in general, you have no symptoms of a psychic disorder. It's enough for you to support durable relationships with close ones and you quite easily let people who you didn't manage to know well get close to you. Of course, when there's a reason for that and you understand that a person can be trusted. Now you should take a rest and reload to feel good again.
