Social Anxiety…What is it?

For people with social anxiety disorder, everyday social interactions cause irrational anxiety, fear, self-consciousness, and embarrassment.
Symptoms may include excess fear of situations in which one may be judged, worry about embarrassment or humiliation, or concern about offending someone.

Social anxiety is the fear of being judged and evaluated negatively by other people, leading to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, self-consciousness, embarrassment, humiliation, and depression. If a person usually becomes (irrationally) anxious in social situations, but seems better when they are alone, then “social anxiety” may be the problem.

I myself deal with social anxiety, some days are better than others but the way I get through it is by focusing on the important things in my life and on the things that are going to push me further in life and staying calm and thinking positive. Meditation and prayer is key for helping me with social anxiety because it helps me to find clarity and regroup myself and understand that I have control and to only do what’s best and safe for me and to not be overly concerned with others and what they may think or say be it positively or negatively.

I know that it can be life altering if you have social anxiety, your life can be at a stand still because of the anxiety you may be feeling, the only way for you to get through or deal with the anxiety is to find ways to get through it. Learn different techniques or if you have an extreme case seek out medical attention but in order to live your life at your greatest potential you have to be the one to do something about it. Remember you are enough and you have purpose and value just like everyone else here on earth just believe in yourself and don’t worry about what others may have to say because it’s your life and you have to live it, never live in “fear” or let any anxiety dictate your life you only have one so live it happily and safely.

Take care of your mental health beautiful people ❤
