Understanding Social Anxiety
Everyone suffers from social anxiety symptoms to some extent, but social anxiety becomes a mental disorder when those symptoms prohibit you from living your life to the fullest. Everyone experiences some discomfort when it comes to meeting new people, going on dates, going on a job interview, or speaking in public. Most people are aware of their own nervousness but are able to move through the discomfort in order to live a normal life that requires such situations.
Social Anxiety Symptoms
If you experience the following symptoms and find yourself avoiding the situations that trigger the social anxiety symptoms you could benefit from social anxiety treatment. If you find that you have an excessive fear of speaking to strangers, you find it difficult to make eye contact, you worry about being embarrassed or humiliated, being judged by others, avoid doing things or talking to people for fear of being embarrassed, or the anxiety negatively effects your ability to fulfill your daily obligations at work, home, and other places.
Social anxiety symptoms can also manifest physically as profuse sweating, having cold and clammy hands, blushing, muscle tension, digestive issues such as vomiting, diarrhea and nausea, an increased heart rate, shakiness, and a trembling voice.
Suffering from such symptoms than go untreated can lead to an inability to assert yourself, negative self-talk, low self-esteem, poor social skills, underachieving at work and school, isolation, addictions and even suicide.
The Root of Social Anxiety
Social anxiety is actually a consequence of your subconscious mind’s main objective to protect you. Most people suffer from social anxiety symptoms because one or both of their parents suffered from social anxiety, and children learn best by example. As a child you learn to cope by watching your parents cope. If you had a parent the displayed social anxiety symptoms then you probably learned them well.
You can also develop social anxiety as a result of being humiliated or embarrassed in public either during your childhood or even as an adult. Being publicly humiliated or embarrassed can be traumatizing. The intense emotions that the trauma creates, imbeds the experience into your subconscious mind. Due to the protective nature of your subconscious mind, it will then compel you to avoid any and all situations that could possibly cause you to feel embarrassed or humiliated. The subconscious mind invokes the uncomfortable social anxiety symptoms so that you will avoid the threatening situations, altogether. This becomes a problem when every day we are faced with opportunities to be embarrassed or humiliated. Life can become very isolated and disappointing.
