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.

When I’m at a a mall and it’s packed I get anxious so much that I can’t walk right, the fear of being judged gets me uncomfortable.. I’m not antisocial I just prefer to have a one on one.

I have a problem where when I have to go to a friends house or hangout I get loads of anxiety I almost feel sick to my stomach which makes it worse with my emetophobia

Every example hit close to home. Also my face gets entirely red from whether I laugh too loud, too quiet, or when somebody looks at me. It got to the point where I wouldn’t raise my hand in class to ask the teacher for help because I didn’t wanna expose myself like that. This vid kinda helped. Still get red but not as bad. Thanks!

What about when only people you dont want to see you are people from your area who have known you most of your life but you've lost yourself so much ur afraid and anxious about letting them see you including your closest ones over the years. Im so ashamed of myself that i dont want to face anybody who knows how well i used to be. My anxiety isnt as bad around people who dont know the old me. Yes i get nervous in public but not near as much. My anxiety is real i cant leave my bedroom because im afraid my sisters friends may come round while im in kitchen so when i do i have to rush and i cant bringg myself to leave house because im afraid ill see somebody who knows me n thats very common because i live in a counsel estate full of young people where almost everyone knows everyone. Please how could i overcome this i just want my life back, start working and get back in gym. Iv put on 4 stone in passs 2 years because of my anxiety i just want my old life back.
Is there any free therapist that I can speak to online? If anyone knows one, please comment!

Steven Beast (12 days ago)
Wow never realized that I had this so bad now. Out of high school I was confident I went out with friends partied did sports socialized (but didn’t really consider myself extroverted) but it was until I dropped out of college and started working to pay off personal debts. It’s now 2019 and now I’m seeing a bunch of my friends progressing in their lives and I’m just now back in college and I’m so timid ! Not an ounce of confidence I started sweating on the first day of class when it was my turn to introduce myself. I hate social anxiety now that my old college buddies invite me places I make up excuses not to go and I just don’t feel like me anymore ):

I'm alright for the most part...I've got a regular mix of depression and anxiety, but my biggest issue lately with anxiety relates to social anxiety in that I can't go anywhere without an intense fear that I am going to run into people from high school. I don't know why...it's not a cute edgy thing like "oh my god, lol I hate running into people from high school"...it's like a legitimate fucked up feeling. I went to the grocery store last night and I had a panic every time I walked through each isle..and an even more intense fear of a scenario playing in my head like "what if I do see someone and they look at me, or holy shit even start talking to me?!" Shit sucks...I came home and told my fiance that I didn't want to bitch about my problem, but that I was in a sour mood because my terrible anxiety was making me angry because it's something I can't control. P.S. I've tried medications..didn't find one that worked and I didn't want to take the more intense drugs my doctor was naming off. I'm just going to manage my depression and anxiety with things that help me pretty well: bubble baths, meditation, asmr videos, and watching videos about my problems like this so I at least know I am not alone.

I’ve always been a “social butterfly” but one day something that traumatized me happened and I feel like everyone is looking at me and talking about me it gets to the point err I walk really weird trying not to take big steps to were I walk very small hoping that it isn’t drawing an attention. I am also so scared to go places with my family including water parks, the beach places that people my or around my age will be because I feel so judged because of my weight and looks and it scares me horribly....

Hey guys, I used to suffer from extreme social anxiety. At one point it was so bad, I locked myself in my room for a year and half. Rarely leaving. I was able to overcome my phobias and now wish to help as many socially anxious people as possible.

I get self conscious when I walk into a room of people I know and it sucks sometimes
Tiana Castro (20 days ago)
I’m 14 and i’m homeschooled for this year (8th grade). I got homeschooled cause I begged my grandma to let me and I thought it would make me happier. Last year I lost basically all of my friends because they were fake or stopped talking to me. I have 2 friends and I barely hang out with them. One of them asked me to go somewhere with her this weekend but I didn’t reply because I don’t think I can. I’m sick of getting anxiety. I’m afraid that I won’t know what to say or that it’ll be really awkward or uncomfortable. I’m missing out on a lot of things because of this and it’s so frustrating. I see a therapist but she doesn’t give me advice and she fucking sucks. She prescribed me with medicine that doesn’t work and just makes me sad. I realized there’s nothing that’s gonna help this. I’m always gonna have it and there’s nothing I can do. This is really making me depressed. I’m sick of staying in my room all the time and I wanna go out but just can’t. It’s not normal to be this anxious around your own friends. They don’t understand so they probably think I’m a flake and a bitch. I cant even talk to my own sister (who’s 28) because it’s awkward and I don’t know what to say. I always don’t know what to say or don’t know what to talk about it’s horrible. I’m jealous of people who are good at socializing cause I would do anything for it. I wanna see if I can go out next weekend (cause i’m buying rlly good makeup and maybe that’ll make me feel better about myself) and hang out with my friend. I’m gonna try and that’s really all I can do. Maybe I just have to say fuck it and think it’s only gonna be a few hours and I’ll get through it and look back on it later and say it wasn’t that bad. This is just extremely depressing, I don’t know how I’m gonna go to public high school next year..

I'm 34 and not married and anxiety has literally destroyed my life, I have missed out on so many opportunities and messed up interviews. My family has always just considered me the 'quiet and shy one' but I always knew its deeper than that. It is only a few years ago that I googled myself. I'm in South Africa and if anyone wants to be my anxiety buddy please comment. I would really love to talk to someone in my situation. Usually it's people with Normal shyness and a lot of them have a get over it attitude towards the whole situation

What about when you're so deep into depression that you have broken the contact with all your friends and when you get ready to go out and meet them you have a panic attack when looking in the mirror because you feel so fucking disgusting that you just break down and cancel the plans? Make a video on that.

i was a person who was never socially awkward, i was so positive and didn't give a shit about what people thought of me. I then became friends with a really toxic person that changed my perspective of life and was constantly judging everything about me resulting in me to overthink every little dumb ass thing. I then started to get really self conscious about my appearance which resulted in my eating disorder, and now im just an awkward mess who overthinks shit and hates herself :)

Arturo Beltran (1 month ago)
Man, I can't even think when I got like this. It gets my frustrated and pissed off that I feel this way because I don't know what caused this to develop in my head. I have always been an introvert but had never had a problem with that until I started feeling super anxious at around age 23. There was this one time when I was still in the university and was in the office to see my financial counselor. There were two other women sitting there too, waiting. Then this one guy walks in all nervous and trying to play it off by talking so much that even the receptionist looked uncomfortable because she didn't know what to say to continue the conversation with him. Then when the receptionist told him to take a seat he came over, sat and just kept looking around and trying to make conversation. He just started talking to us 3 people sitting in the waiting area by talking loud and saying he was in a psychology class. We just sat there like "okay?" And then he says, isn't funny how we all just try to play it off like we are comfortable? He then points us out and says she (one of the girls) is on her phone, she (other girl) is reading a magazine but is shaking her leg up and down. And he (me) has his headphones on to listen to music. Ugh, that shit just gets me mad now just thinking about it. I feel that was one of the things that unlocked a part of my brain that made me be more self conscious. My point of this whole thing is. Don't freaking point things out of other people just to feel better about yourself. Now I feel like everyone is watching what I do, even my breathing. I try to relax when I am anxious but then I feel that people will see me taking deep breaths and will right away be judging.

I also know problem of some people. In which they have written that when I talk with any girls then my eyes fall on unpleasant place or private part. Because of this’ they avoid ayes contact with every person including man and girl. I have persnol experienc that you avoid viewing porn video for a month. Then 0You can see change self. I know it’s difficult at starting. Social anaxity is kind of two; first is because of shy. Second is because of above reason. I suggest that please stop viewing porn video

David Cipriano (1 month ago)
so this is my problem: I have never been an introvert, I have just felt a little out of place and I never made friends in high school. Going to a commuting college never improved my chances of meeting new people, until I decided to see it in myself that it is time to date and make friends because NOBODY deserves to be alone. I joined a club at school and I really liked it, but most of these members seem to have anxiety of sorts and it is kind of a turn off. Last semester I was really tired of school and was going through some anxiety and crazy thoughts (something I had never experienced but given the circumstance of a taking a really shitty class with a shitty professor, it happened). I really tried to ground myself and find myself surrounded with a couple of friends I made but I just couldn't really go out with them since they have their own life going on. I went a whole month without really going out and having fun, and I think I have developed anxiety of sorts. I begin to have negative thoughts and I just think about those people from school and how they behave in public, like if they're on edge. I really need to save myself, but idk how since people that I know don't seem to hang out even when I ask. :(

Caused by a set of self limiting beliefs... Some rational while many irrational. The amigdala kicks into high gear and the hypersensitivity takes control. Most people retreat into solitude and into their own internal world while others take and aggressive externalized approach. Personalities high in neuroticism are the biproduct. The origins of this social disorder can be both genetic and epigenetic. Such people will not fair well in relationships with other socially anxious people. What is required is the companionship of a secure and empathetic person in a relationship. Its challenging to reverse the damage caused by experience and may be impossible to completely undo it however decreasing the intensity of the experience can help in making profound improvement in the quality of life of the individual. Mentoring/coaching is very helpful. Establishing meaninful relationships and having that home base helps in subduing the sense of threat. Developing a level of indifference towards the opinion of others also helps but must be monitored as to not get out of control and create and indifference towards society and consequently a disdain for humanity. Important - a mild sense of anxiety in social settings is healthy. Also it is helpful to focus your interests on others around you and to get your focus off of yourself. Set the goal of learning about others prior to engaging in social activity and you will make improvements and possibly new friends. Godspeed
