I believe that we all have had the fear at some point in our life that others are viewing and judging you when you are in public.
Many times people have fear when they are unable to speak or say the right thing at the right place to the right person.
It is little things like this that are often over-thought and can easily build into nervousness and fear of this happening again.
For many people this can get to a point where they are thinking about all the negative things that could happen when they are in a public setting even before they get in that situation.
Instead of just living our life and being comfortable in our own skin, we will often second guess everything that we do and have constant fear that we made a mistake or could have done better.
It is easy to say that we should all just get over it, accept the fact that we are human and will make mistakes and live our life to the fullest.
However, coming from someone who has dealt with the symptoms of social phobia all of my life, I can understand that this is beyond our control and we must seek the source of our fear and take the necessary steps to overcome social anxiety.
Having nervousness and anxiousness when in social settings is completely normal and for many people is something that is always there but quickly fades as the they get to the event and get comfortable in their setting.
You should consider taking steps in-order to overcome your social phobia symptoms when they become disabling or cause health concerns.
Most of these symptoms include increased heart rate, shortness of breath, sweating, shaking, lack of appetite, and in some cases minor delusions.
Social anxiety symptoms can quickly develop into more severe health concerns including depression and alcohol drug dependence if not treated.
These are very scary and sometimes these type disorders can lead to serious health concerns, in some cases may be fatal.
Fatal, life threatening, now is the time to stop living with social fear disorder and start taking steps to living your life without social anxiety.
How To Overcome Social Anxiety
There are several methods that you could use to overcome your social phobia, the main methods include cognitive behavior therapy, medication and neurolinquistic programming.
Medications are exactly what you would expect them to be, they reduce the symptoms of social fear while you take them, there are some potential scary side effects, and as soon as you stop taking the drugs, the symptoms return.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Neurolinquistic Programming both deal with getting to the root-cause of your social anxiety and reprogramming the way that your mind thinks about social situations.
