I wanna have the whole and not a part
Strange that this feeling grows more and more
'Cause I've never loved someone like you before

Hey. I know that social anxiety isn't easy to deal with, as I occasionally struggle with it myself. I think an important thing you could do in order to help with social anxiety would be to put yourself in more social situations, instead of shying away from them. Put yourself out there, once you put yourself in enough social situations, maybe you'll become more used to them, and they'll be easier to deal with and maybe even enjoy. Start off with only a small group of people, so that you can get the hang of small talk and such. When you feel ready, move on to a bigger group of people, and simply work on getting rid of those uncomfortable feelings you have when you're around people. It's tough, but there are a lot of ways that you can overcome social anxiety.

Hi Craig

Having social anxiety is a crippling disorder. Im so sorry you have it. I kinda know how you feel with social anxiety, I suffer mild anxiety as well.

There are excercises in which your anxiety can improve....it takes strenght & will power...something I believe you have.

It isnt easy, but it does get easier the more you try.

Try something small, like talking to 1 person at a time. Someone you know well. Then move on slowly to bigger crowds. It sounds scary.

Have you tried relaxation techniques. If your in a group & you start to feel all the social anxiey. Take deep breathes & relax your muscles. Think of something calm...like sitting on a beach.

The more you involved your self in a social situation, the more easier the situations will become

If you need to talk my inbox is always open
