This video will help you deal with social anxiety and provides some helpful tips to overcome anxiety. Do you get nervous and a little self conscious when you walk into a room of people you don't know? Butterflies and anxiety are normal when getting up and giving a speech in front of people. Social anxiety is beyond that-- it's an absolute fear. It's so strong that it prevents you from going places and doing things. It's limiting happiness and the ability to socialize. Social Anxiety Triggers Aaron Marino of alpha m. says social anxiety an irrational fear of embarrassing yourself or getting intensely scrutinized. Alpha covers triggers: meeting new people, being the center of attention, making small talk, public speaking, being called out in class, eating in public, going out on a date, using a public bathroom. Do You Have Social Anxiety? Warning signs are stressing and being anxious about doing everyday things; worrying for weeks before an event; feeling that you constantly being judged or picked apart.

Getting Social Anxiety Under Control 1.Challenge your own negative thoughts. 2.Learn to control your breathing. 3.Face your fear. 4.Seek professional help such as a therapist. 5.Medication.

I just met my friend’s girlfriend for the first time today. She was surprisingly SO nice & open but I was so awkward. I tried my best but when she asked questions I just kept embarrassing myself more every time. It makes me sad because I usually don’t really have girl friends, & she was SO nice & I feel like I screwed this up for myself, once again. I’m homeschooled this year, it’s great, but I feel like I’m not living the same life as others? I feel detached from others, there’s them & then there’s me you know? I have a group of friends that I love, but today we hanged out & I felt like I was invisible or not really wanted, worthless. Like it wouldn’t make a difference if I was here or not. I just keep thinking about it. My friends are all I have & losing them would put me in such a bad mental state. All of this is caused by SOCIAL ANXIETY and i’m sick of it.

Knowing yourself is key as well you need to like he said challenge yourself. Talk to people you’d usually be intimidated by that aren’t that important notice what your doing with your hands and breathing notice how fast or loud your talking fix the areas that would make you judge others it’s pretty much forward from there I struggled with the same things and although I still get these anxious feelings i am able to quickly correct them it’s basically being comfortable and in tune with yourself

I have a group of friends and I recently got social anxiety it wasn’t that bad but after a while is started taking over and I lost a very fun sweet group of friends. I have been trying to get back connected with them and saying things like hi can start conversations with them. And I realize that I’m always over thinking things that are so small like going up to a group of people, who’d I usually hangout with. Sometimes I’ll just go up to them when I see them and try not to think about what may happen. And now I’m starting to spend more time with them.

Though a lot of my anxiety is because of fear of humiliation, I also seem to not talk to people just because I’m 100% convinced they don’t want to talk to me. I see myself as a total loser, and I don’t want to ruin anyone’s day by talking to them, or making them uncomfortable or something... I just don’t want people that I look up to for being cool and extroverted to not like me, or laugh at me behind my back. Yikes. Edit: I get super embarrassed whenever people talk to me, even if it’s not mean or embarrassing?

His advice are only good for people with mild anxiety... it took me years to take some control of it.. anxiety disorders wrecks your mind and body.. takes time to control or lessen the physical symptoms and to educate your mind to lessen the symptoms.. I have like 7 years with a generalized social anxiety.. started when I went to college and had to be adultish/independant. that stuff is powerful, it made me so sick when it first hit me, didnt know what it was though I knew I was about to get a panic attack... and hasnt let go of me... I still get sick but I know now how to work around it... still, I am unable to work and make friends...

the problem with me is that people around me are so used to me being quiet, especially family, that whenever I say something they all go quietly as I don't talk a lot which in turn makes me anxious and makes everything worse which is the thing I fear the most.... in reality you need to find some way to boost your confidence and reduce your anxiety, i also overthink things very badly, here's a list of stuff you could do: -try medication, i used CBD oil which actually works kinda well but not for long -hypnosis, for me this works pretty well, i listen to videos of people hypnotizing you and for me personally, the impacts were immediate(positive) but it only works for a few people but def give it a try -mediation, spend like 10 mins concentrating on your own breathing so you can control your thinking, works well if you over think stuff cuz you learn to control your thoughts. also helps you to get out of your own head. -write down all your thoughts on a piece of paper or anything that you can write on, this helps you release the frustration that you have inside and helps you to try and improve. -talk about it to people you trust, I can talk about it to my siblings openly as I know they won't judge me, you will find that when someone knows that you have social problems, it's for some reason a lot easier to talk to them casually. if you have a close friend(s) talk about it with them but don't just say that you have social anxiety, be vague and say like that you are a bit anxious sometimes. -assume that everyone that you talk to likes you, because they probably do in some way, you have to remember that not everyone thinks the same way and people will see you in a different way -be yourself, people will like you more if you show that you have an interesting personality and everyone does have a one. don't pretend to be someone that you wish you were like because you will never be. just try to meditate as that will 100% help you, and if you are hypnotizable it will help you a lot as well. if I find more things that help social anxiety ill put it here. hope this helps.

I'm 15 and I'm really, REALLY scared of adults and generally people I don't know. Adults that I don't know are the worst though. I've always been the youngest in my family and felt that I couldn't talk to my cousins or even my older brother (by four years). I mean there are only three adults that I feel comfortable with, my mom, dad and grandmother. My other grandmother and grandfather, no. My uncles, no. My aunts, no. I'm always really scared that they look down on me or treat me differently since I'm just a kid, and I just really don't want that extra attention. Now my mother is forcing me to spend New Year's Eve with her and our neighbor and the neighbors friend. So yeah me alone with three old ladies, and I'm terrified. Right now I am literally bawling my eyes out. And I don't know why I just wrote all this. But yeah. Help:'((((

talk to a therapist? Most therapists are psychos themselves, after lifetime of dealing with other peoples mental problems. NO PSYCHIATRIST OR PSYCHOLOGIST IS SANE. Its like cops or lawyers after, handling criminals day in and day out, turn into crooks themselves.

I am starting to believe in selfishness these days. I have always been humble, down to earth and great person but never been able to look after myself as much as I deserve. Putting others first always doesn't work these days. One needs to be selfish in a good way to be able to look after own self without getting getting distracted..

I just graduated high school and I don’t have any real life friends because of this disorder. And I don’t even have a job because of it. My brother likes to hang out with his friends all the time and it makes me feel very sad and lonely. Whenever my family asks me to hang out with them, I most likely decline. And I regret it.

I hate my social anxiety because I’m a smart person but when it comes to applying my knowledge to things in front of people I choke up and just sound stupid because I get socially anxious and can’t think clearly and I’m just thinking of what they are thinking of me I wonder what they think of what I just said , there body movement makes me think they are uninterested or want to leave.

I have social anxiety but i don't dare to tell anyone because i know they are just going to send me to a counselor or a therapist . i get nervous eating in front of people ( even my family ) i couldn't even swallow properly without worrying if anyone is judging me . I also get uncomfortable breathing alot of times when I'm out or when im with alot of people . And when im walking outside i feel so uncomfortable thinking that people is looking at me and because of that i tend to stumble alot when i walk. I get really worried if someone is standing beside or behind me even if its far away . I tend to also hide alot when im out. and also i don't dare to express my feelings much when im with my family , i feel like if they try to understand they are trying too hard and its uncomfortable , and sometimes when my mum says things that i feel offensive or selfish ( she's not a really consideate person) , i really feel like shedding even a tear would be nice but i always hold myself back and have some reality pep talk in my head .

I feel like i'll never get over my social anxiety. I've had it since i was 4 years old. I am currently 14 and i do not feel comfortable leaving my room to go downstairs because i imagine people looking at me and making fun of me every time i move a muscle. I started high school in september, and I still haven't talked to anyone, made eye contact, actually said full sentences, and I don't feel comfortable drinking water, breathing, eating, etc because of the noises those things make, and i feel like it brings negative thoughts to other people about me. I want to be invisible, but I also want friends. I honestly wish I could kill myself, but i know how much my family cares about me, and even though they do, i still feel unwanted, stupid, terrible, annoying, depressed, and any bad adjective. My family says that i should step out of my comfort zone and try to talk to people, but I don't have a comfort zone because i don't feel safe doing anything a normal person does. Because of this, i can't see myself being much more than a waste of life in the near future. I wish i had someone to talk to, but i don't want to be noticed. I won't get better, and I know it. I hate myself.
