We all have been there at some time. Your body is shivering, palms sweating, mind racing with anxiety, and you feel like you are unable to speak. For some, the situation gets worse. We are talking about ‘Social Anxiety’.
What is Social Anxiety?
Social Anxiety is the situation when a person possesses a dreadful feeling of being judged and assessed negatively by other individuals, prompting sentiments of insufficiency, inadequacy, reluctance, self-consciousness, shame, embarrassment, and depression.
In the event that an individual normally turns out to be (nonsensically) on edge in social circumstances, however, appears to be better when they are alone, at that point "social anxiety" might be the issue.
Life is overflowing with episodes of self-consciousness– from job interview to the first date, we as a whole infrequently feel apprehensive around other individuals.
In any case, social anxiety turns into an issue when it's become so intense or frequent that it hinders significant things throughout your life. For example, you might avoid meeting your family and friends because you are dreading about how they judge you or you don’t apply for your dream job because you are afraid of a job interview.
