A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that’s unlocked and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Are you one of the millions who suffer from Social Anxiety?


Anxiety – An internal response to a perceived threat to our well-being. It is a combination of 4 things: Unidentified anger, hurt, fear, and self-pity. We expect rejection and humiliation and actually start to anticipate it.

Social – Spending time in the company of others talking and/or doing activities together.

Social Anxiety – Dreading, fearing, and/or expecting to be rejected and/or humiliated by others in social settings.

  • A feeling of discomfort, fear, dread, or worry that is centered on our interactions with other people.
  • Fear of being judged negatively by others.
  • Fear of being evaluated negatively by others.
  • Fear of being less than and, thus, looked down upon by others.

It’s normal to feel nervous in some social situations. Going on a first date or giving an important speech may cause some anxiety. It would be “normal” to be nervous and/or anxious. Social anxiety is the irrational, exaggerated, over-the-top apprehension, fear, self-consciousness, and awkwardness when interacting with other people.

  • Blushing
  • Sweating
  • Racing heart

  • Negative thoughts

Situations that can trigger intense social anxiety:

  • Being introduced to new people.
  • Being mocked or criticized.
  • Being the center of attention.
  • Being observed.
  • Interacting with people of authority.
  • Socializing, especially with strangers.
  • Speaking in front of a group – at a meeting or event.
  • Interpersonal relationships.

Behaviors associated with social anxiety:

  • Avoiding entering social situations.
  • Leaving situations, “escaping.”
  • Being particular about the details of a social setting (where it is and who will be there).
  • Creating distractions to avoid being in conversations.
  • Apologizing excessively.
  • Asking for reassurance from others.
  • Preparing excessively (memorizing or planning what to say, needing to look perfect).
  • Being on the look-out for signs that others are judging you.
