How Do I Overcome Social Anxiety?

Q:
How do I overcome social anxiety?

A:
People with social anxiety are really having a hard time. It interferes with one’s daily activities. But the good news is that there are ways to cope with it.

You may first try a workbook that tells people how to manage the problem. If that doesn’t help, seek professional help. Finding an anxiety therapist is a good idea.
You can also try an exposure hierarchy. Write down 10 things that make you anxious and rank them based on severity of anxiety they cause. Start from the easiest one and finish all 10 tasks.
Remember to have a rational outlook. Don’t underestimate your ability and scare yourself or think too highly of yourself.
