This world is not an easy place to live in. People are cruel and everyone feels the need to pass judgment all the time. This is a very judgmental world, and the society can be so difficult to deal with, sometimes.
Signs of Social Phobia
Not all people deal with social phobia but those who do really have a difficult time. It is not easy when you are unable to face people because of some kind of fear you have of all kinds of encounter. It is not easy to be dealing with all kinds of social phobias, so you have to open your eyes to the different signs:
Do you find yourself blushing terribly when you are forced to speak in front of people, or even if you are simply given the attention of a bunch of people? Do you find yourself sweating profusely when you know that you have everyone’s attention? Is the sweat accumulation making your problem worse? Do you find yourself trembling when you are speaking in front of people; and do you experience uncomfortable palpitations? Does your voice shake when you speak? Do you have any difficulty breathing or are you unable to form audible words, at all? Do you sometimes worry about weird cases and uncomfortable upset stomach and diarrhea and nausea?
If you are dealing with any of these symptoms, you are definitely dealing with a bad case of social phobia and you have to deal with it effectively. It is not easy to have to be having trouble facing people; if you have to deal with these unpleasant symptoms, it is even more difficult.
How to Face the Public
One way or another, you will need to deal with different kinds of people and face the crowd. If you are having a problem with that, you can easily learn how to, by following these simple tips:
Accept that you have a problem, and face the truth. Looking away from it will only make things worse. You cannot face the public and this is an issue that you should not just neglect. Once you recognize that you have a problem, everything can go from there. Start approaching people. Instead of keeping yourself away from people, go ahead and face your fears. Staying away will not do anything; in fact, it will only make things harder for you. Face your fears and learn to face different kinds of people, even if it is hard for you. Evaluate your discomfort. When you are in front of people, try to evaluate your discomfort so that you can learn how to deal with them accordingly. When you are in front of people and are having a panic attack, take deep breaths and learn to ease out. Count a few seconds before you speak, so that you can deal with the heavy emotions. If you have to deal with a cruel inner critic, talk back to it and prove it wrong.
