Social Anxiety on TILT – and that’s okay.

Before we talk about Social Anxiety, let’s define it.  Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people. It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person’s life. (Definition taken from SocialPhobia.org…) I didn’t start off having social anxiety. I promise you. I can be gregarious as you like, but things change in adulthood. Now as a middle aged SuperMom, my social anxiety is HELLA HIGH. I think it is because I’m still finding my tribe at 46yrs old. (Okay, I’m a slow starter. Don’t judge me.  No really because that triggers my anxiety. LBVS.)

In this episode I talk about social anxiety and how it affects me.

Now, I want to stress if you have social anxiety and you need help, please, please seek to get a therapist or see if you can talk to someone from your work’s EAP line. There is help out there.  Here’s a link to learn more about social phobia:  https://ift.tt/2B7jXO3
