It is a pervasive state of mind and causes fear in most areas of a person’s life. It does not go away on its own.
People with anxiety are many times seen by others as being shy, quiet, backward, withdrawn, inhibited, unfriendly, nervous, aloof, and disinterested.
Paradoxically, people with anxiety want to make friends, be included in groups, and be involved and engaged in social interactions. But having anxiety prevents people from being able to do the things they want to do. Although people with anxiety want to be friendly, open, and sociable, it is fear that holds them back.
The strong and complex feelings that accompany social discomfort may include anxiety, sometimes even high levels of fear, nervousness, automatic negative emotional and cognitive cycles, racing heart, blushing, excessive sweating, dry throat and mouth, trembling, and muscle twitches. In severe situations, people can develop a dysmorphia concerning part of their body. Constant, intense anxiety (fear) is the most common symptom.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy and individual personalized counseling or regular Skype counseling sessions combined with a continuum of Counselor-Client using interaction: WhatsApp, FCB Messenger or some other communication APP for social anxiety has been markedly successful. Many research studies now indicate that, after the completion of social anxiety-specific counseling and therapy, people with anxiety are changed.
They now live a life.
