Social anxiety is something that can be beaten if you take action and control of the situation. You deserve to be happy and experience great times with good people. 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. Behavioral symptoms are deciding not to go to attend an event, bringing along a friend, standing in the background, or drinking before going to an event. If you have more fear than fun, take the steps to get your social anxiety in check. 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.

The fact that typing this comment is social anxiety because I am afraid that people I know will see this and judge me based on the things I say and based on the fact that I am looking at this video...

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.

I would feel horrible if I wasted it and didn’t go😬 but I’m scared to be alone and I don’t wanna be uncomfortable for a long period of time. It’s in a few days and oof

I have a art competition that I have to attend to and I’m sooo scared...like we have to do a interview and last time I did a interview it didn’t go well. It gets so bad that I literally start to shake and I can’t even pronounce a word..I stutter and loose train of thought. It’s so hard and no body..not even my closest friend understands me. I feel like I’m alone. It feels like your standing back while everyone else is going forward and I’m just watching. Idk anymore. My mind is my own killer and I’m tired of it.

I was talking to my friend and this kid from one of my classes came up to me and asked : “ _Why don’t you talk in class_ ?” I was trying to come up with a reasonable response but I realized how long I was standing in silence so I just shrugged. My parents usually question me when I don’t want to go to a public school function even if my friend is going.I’ve been more distant from my family because it feels like they don’t want me there or would rather be talking to someone else.It’s just hard ya know? Edit: I only have one friend rn lol.Most of them left because I was to clingy or maybe not clingy enough idk 😐 ʇno pǝssǝɹʇs ɯ,ı ʍou puɐ

I cant sit in front of class because i feel like everyone is staring at the back of my head and watching my every move even though i know theyre not. Ive even skipped classes because i was 5 minutes late and there were no seats in the back. Just one of my MANY every day problems with social anxiety and just anxiety in general.

I have social anxiety and I also have a breathing disorder, so even when I freak out due to the anxiety I can’t just take deep breaths and calm down. It’s terrible, even around my best friends I get stuck thinking about how stupid I must look, and how stupid I must sound, then I just stop talking and then I worry that they think I’m weird because I’m not talking enough, it’s terrible! I just want to feel normal and happy! It feels like I’m missing out on everything fun.

I moved school districts 2 years ago... and still haven't made any good friends. I have like casual friends to talk to, but no friends that I'm close with. I always see people who went to the school district their entire life, so they are extremely close with EVERYONE. At my old school I wasn't friends with everyone, but I had MUCH better friends. None of my friends here are "invite to a sleepover close".

I've missed on 10 yrs worth of promotions because I would miss meetings or go missing during social events at work, like christmas parties......everyone at work caught on.....they all connected the dots and realized that I had social phobia. This made my going to work even worse because everyone knew, like my social anxiety is a secret yet everyone at work has found out. Id rather be perceived as a snob and rude than to be labeled as a social phobe. How embarassing! I am also brutally awkward when I talk to people and I can't control my eyes, I look angry and weary. It's a mess.

Bollocks, you get that way because your an introvert and being with people drains you, so you need down time to recover.
I see your videos more and more and you give great advice. I'm surprised you broach this topic because you seem like such a confident person...but I guess all humans struggle with the same things. Thanks for this video!

In some cases challenging my negative thought has helped and in other cases made me seem awkward, which just makes me panic and more negative thoughts come in. Sometimes to the point where i avoid that person for the rest of the day. If i face my fear a lot of the time it makes it worse. And i am afraid if seeing a therapist. What do i do

There are many components to reducing shyness quickly . One resource I discovered that successfully combines these is the Seans Shy Program (check it out on google) definately the best resource i've seen. look at all the amazing information .
Simon Mektouptchiyan (1 month ago)
I'm seeing a therapist, and she tells me that I need to write down my thoughts and separate feeling and real evidence. It's a good tip but I'm not good at it. Medication is not a good long term solution imo. Tried doing it, supervised by a specialist, but even they recommend not taking it (more than 2 weeks) because its addictive and makes you dependent. I don't know honestly. But to the people who are reading this, if you have social anxiety and still have friends, do not leave them. I'm saying this from personal experience, it doesn't help. It makes you more afraid because then you won't have any reference for any social etiquette.

Your tips are great but my anxiety is in control everything you said that social anxiety effects. Effects me. I'm trying in life but you know anxiety can put you in the mud and well I'm in the mud. People watch me but say nothing and when they do say stuff negative thing come at me. I'm get bullied. I call my self the outcast. But yeah my social anxiety would lessen if people tried to be my friend.

If you see this please answer me. I don't know if I am socially awkward. I am afraid to start a conversation because I feel I am gonna messed up everything and look like a weirdo. I always think everyone are judging me and I don't feel comfortable to speak infront of people. Is this social anxiety or am I just shy?
