Understanding the Symptoms of Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is something that many of us face, but it’s not something that’s often talked about. If you’ve been wanting to learn more about social anxiety, then you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we’re going to discuss the symptoms of social anxiety. Before we begin, it’s important to remember that everyone has a different situation. Some people deal with different symptoms than others do, so don’t compare yourself, and remember that every situation is unique.

Understanding Social Anxiety

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, social anxiety occurs when ”a person with social anxiety disorder feels symptoms of anxiety or fear in situations where they may be scrutinized, evaluated, or judged by others, such as speaking in public, meeting new people, dating, being on a job interview, answering a question in class, or having to talk to a cashier in a store.”

Social anxiety may be fairly common, but that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be taken seriously. Being able to identify the symptoms of social anxiety can be very helpful, so let’s dive into what exactly those are.
