What Is Social Anxiety?
Social anxiety is a collection of emotions that lead to anxiety when meeting people in a social environment. This can range from a mild uneasiness to a full blown panic attack. This fear of meeting people can come on at anytime during your life and for no apparent reason apart from not dealing with the stresses you have put yourself under. So this becomes the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak.

What Can You Do To Stop Social Anxiety.
Going out is not necessarily the first answer to deal with your social anxiety because you’re trying to do something that you cannot do, this can push you back further.
Seeing a therapist can help because they know how to uncover the root cause of your problem also they can reframe your negativity into a positive.
Getting support from family and friends, also telling people who you meet as they will be more sympathetic than you realise and may even relay stories of how they overcame their social anxiety.
You can always laugh at your problem as laughter is one of the biggest and most powerful cures you can have. You can also learn to place your attention onto something else, so as not to focus on the social anxiety.
Social Media In Walsall.
You could say social media has a negative role to play as friends become virtual friends and so we become dissociated from them. Just as you might view a war scene on the news, it never really affect you and 2 mins later you forget about it, even thought the conflict is very real. This is a dissociation towards the real world as the comfort of home is our security blanket and leaving our home is taking away the security, then you are exposed and vulnerable. So the only way the mind and body can get you to feel safe again it to give you all these negative emotions, so that you’ll return back home to your security blanket.
