When does normal anxiety become social anxiety?
We all feel nervous in some social situations and even have “butterflies” in our stomach.
However, with social anxiety our everyday interaction can cause significant fear, anxiety, being self-conscious, and embarrassed. At times feeling the real fear of the root of some of their negative feelings of being observed and judged by others. These feelings can severely affect your life and cheat you out of becoming the Best you!
Social anxiety usually begins in early to mid-teenage years. However, I have observed this in much younger children as well as and adults, in certain events that may occur usually following an adverse situation.
No matter when the anxiety starts this is Serious. Wrapped in this disorder is lack of self-esteem, hypersensitivity to criticism, poor performance in your job, school, relationships and many other failures.
