Having Social Anxiety

Having social anxiety can be a debilitating disorder that can cause discomfort in social situations. It is a feeling of intense fear and anxiety that can be triggered by being around other people, leading to physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, and a racing heart. The fear of being judged or humiliated in a social setting can often lead to avoidance of social activities, and can even interfere with one's ability to work.

Social anxiety can be a difficult thing to manage, but it is possible to reduce its impact on your life. Taking the time to learn more about it and finding ways to cope can help you feel happier and more comfortable in social settings.


To cope with social anxiety it is important to develop strategies for managing the symptoms. These can include cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, therapy, support groups, and lifestyle changes such as getting adequate sleep, eating a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, self-help books, and talking to your Personal Confidant. Choosing the one that is best for you can take some time, but in the process, you will learn a lot about yourself and how to better manage your anxiety.
