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.

My social anxiety makes me scared of my own family. I wait for them to leave the kitchen, to cook my own food, and they get mad at me for cooking late then I start to break down and hate my life ...

Therapist are fake they won't help u if u don't pay I understand I have to pay but when I'm saying that is fake is because they won't help if u don't pay

Yeah. Dude, I agree w/ everything that you're saying. I try so hard to overcome this that I have to push and force myself just to face my fear but for me, this is actually not social anxiety. It's because I'm autistic, have Autism and also have P.T.S.D., etc. that I may never get treated for and recover from.

Yesterday I blacked out in front of the whole class.... I didn't even feel nervous... It never happened to me before like that. Sometimes I felt like I was going to pass out but I always stood my ground and made it through..... This time not.... Now my arm hurts.... F**k:)

Note: If you are naturally social anxious(Because it is mostly genetic) and you were able to overcome in some way, you need to keep doing the mental and behavioral activities that made you confident or else you will revert back to the way you were.
KingJF85 (6 days ago)
My social anxiety started at the beginning of year 9 (9th grade for those Americans) because my voice started to break. Every time I read out in class my voice would go squeaky and loud and it felt terrible and this one prick started laughing and made a lot of the class laugh and kept doing it each time I read and I got really shy and then developed into social anxiety (btw this happened 2 years ago). Before this I could confidently raise my hand in class to answer questions and read out loud but now it's just not the same. In year 7 I would socialize with the popular kids but now I can't and always talk to the unpopular kids who have the same problem as me. I want to go into teaching but my anxiety will kill me.

It's so hard to have a crush when I'm struggling with social anxiety. I feel like he hates me and when he looks at me, i feel like he judging me. It keeps me up at night just worrying about it. 😭🙁
Cruel Delta (6 days ago)
It is normal to feel that way when you have a crush. I had same thoughts back when I had a crush. Just try to be friendly with him and talk to him when you think its appropriate. I don’t think there is any reason for him to hate you. Best of luck!

Judge me come on try it.... With this attitude I reduced the thought 'what others will think' to almost negligible, now I have mindset meeting new people that the other one is shy and then talk comfortably. Don't judge (or do it come on) but I was a awkward shy boy back in school but now I'm in college and it doesn't feel the same like it was in school. Walking and thinking what others are thinking. Now I laugh that what an awkward idiot I was.

1) No people are actually harsh in real life and are constantly judging by you. I've already been rejected by some guys because of this and social anxiety. I get social anxiety because of 1). 2) And I am not fat, ugly, stupid, or in unreasonable amounts of debt.

Anxiety fucking sucks!! While everyone’s getting ready for prom tonight , I’m sitting in my house trying to be supportive. As much as I want to go and buy the dress, do the makeup, get my hair done, my anxiety and depression tell me I don’t want to go. It makes me feel anxious for the people going to prom, like how are they not nervous!?!

I worry so much about what others think about me and it's time to stop. I've been lied on gossiped about scrutinized teased and spoken unkindly words about and it sucks. God is my vindicator and he knows my heart. I will move forward with confidence now matter what. I must believe in myself
Mia Treadwell (28 days ago)
Things no one knows about me: I’m not actually that introverted, I like going out and having fun with my friends I’m just way to scared to I actually don’t mind sport and I like to join in but I act like I absolutely hate it and act terrible at it so I won’t be pressured to make mistakes and so I don’t get any attention and I don’t want to try bc I have this weird thought that people are going to think on it and judge me for going from terrible to bad but actually joining in or people cheering me on I absolutely love acting I’m just way to scared to in front of anyone I’m to scared of go anywhere without a friend even with a friend I’m still scared, I can’t even go across the school library and borrow a book even in the mornings

I feel awkward just being myself 😐 I constantly feel like people are always staring at me no matter where I go. If someone looks at me I usually give them the death stare but it's not that I hate them.... it's just that I feel like their judging me without even knowing who I am, not to mention I find it really hard to trust anyone these days. I don't really like making conversation not only because I feel depressed, but I'm just bored by what people have to say and I no longer feel enthusiastic about shit. I feel like my entire existance is just a big waste of time.

I remember this one story from when I was in 4th grade… So I go to this French class for an hour everyday at that school, I SUCK at French so I just used Google Translate, I was satisfied with myself on the day of our presentations and felt prepared! When it was my time to share I began and my French teacher stopped me and began telling me in front of the class that she knew I used Google translate, and she began turning that into a lesson to teach to the class, I was standing there trying to hold back my tears (I was 10) she noticed some tears falling from my eyes and this is how it went... T=teacher M=Me T- “Are you crying” M- “N-no I’m fine” T- “No I think your crying” M- “No no I’m fine” T- “Oh I didn’t mean to make you cry” M- “oh oh hehe it’s fine I’m fine!” Yeah, she said this loud and clear in front of the whole class! After she sent me to the bathroom to wash my face and I sat in a stall crying, she kept meeting with me saying stuff like, “oh I’m so sorry if I embarrassed you”. I never forgot that moment, I felt guilty, I felt anger, I felt embarrassment, and I felt like running home and sitting in my bed and eating junk food. That’s all I do, I’m just a worthless idiot who cancels plans with friends and does that.

One thing that i’ve noticed that has helped me is that no one gives a shit about what you do.Even if you embarrass yourself the other person’s life goes on and they’ll forget about it in at the MOST a week.They don’t watch your every move either.Even if it isn’t the best thing to do another thing that helps is dressing well and convincing yourself that you’re better than everyone else.After a bit of doing that you’ll start to feel better and you can be yourself.
