How to overcome Social Anxiety

Why learning about issues which cause pain in your life becomes easy to stomach

The relief comes from identifying the problems harming your life and how to fix them. I wish I knew about anxiety when I was at the peak of experiencing it. I would have done things differently, I might have developed quickly and not go through a lot of years in a dark place. extract:

“Emotional and behavioral symptoms

Signs and symptoms of social anxiety disorder can include constant:

• Fear of situations in which you may be judged negatively

• Worry about embarrassing or humiliating yourself

• Intense fear of interacting or talking with strangers

• Fear that others will notice that you look anxious.

• Fear of physical symptoms that may cause you embarrassment, such as blushing, sweating, trembling or having a shaky voice.”

The relief of knowing

If you have a problem there’s a good chance you can find help for it. Anxiety is a weird disorder to have. You are afraid of being out in the world, without anyone telling you to not go out. Without anyone telling you not to speak to them. Not to hang out with them. Not to laugh with them. Not to chill with them. Not to act silly with them. Not to collaborate with them. Not to be yourself around them.

Anxiety is not something to laugh at

I do not downplay anxiety. I battled with it for years. The socially awkward stages; I had good friends around me who liked me for me. ‘Though I suspect that they saw my anxiety.’ But it’s personal views like this which are signs of a lingering anxiety. Judging myself — “Fear that others will notice…” — by asking myself, ‘though I suspect that they saw my anxiety.’ Long after the socially awkward stage are signs of Anxiety-Aftershocks.

Because I wonder how they stayed with me when I would’ve left if they had been as awkward as I was. And was I awkward in the first place? Or was it me who thought I was awkward which made my behavior awkward? Anxiety 101.

It takes time to get better. It takes time to fight anxiety. Identifying that you have a disorder can be the best news you receive. Because knowing that I had anxiety issues helped me deal with it. I got to learn about emotional intelligence, in my journey to beat anxiety, about how a lot of emotions play a part in building or destroying a person.

When you use the right emotions you develop. But use the wrong emotions and your life can suffer. Anxiety is bad. It limits you and slows down your world. It’s sad to know that a lot of people battle with anxiety. But a lot of people beat anxiety too.

How to beat anxiety

It’s reaching out and asking for help which makes the difference. You can do it! You can become a better version of yourself. A lot of help is available. Use it. Try it out. Ask for assistance. You can help yourself because it’s you who must take the first step to beat anxiety. You can live a better life. The world is a beautiful place once you free yourself from anxiety
