What does it mean 'like a full-body, wholesale dislike of you'? I had no answers at all the other day.


It captures the experience the experience of what rejection feels like for those with social anxiety--like a full-body, wholesale dislike of you as a person, as if someone is standing in your face yelling "Re-jected!" over and over again.


It's from a book called 'The Solution to Social Anxiety'

Thank you!

    A "full-body workout," for example, is a set of exercises that work muscles throughout your entire body. A "full-body mirror" is one that reflects your entire body, not just a head-and-shoulders view. So "full-body" encompasses all of you, not just a portion of you.

    If you sell "wholesale," rather than "retail," you sell in much larger quantities, e.g. 10,000 rolls of toilet paper as a minimum order, not 10.

    So a "full-body, wholesale dislike of you" is simply a way to enhance the hugeness of your dislike.
