How I overcame social anxiety

how-i-overcame-social-anxiety



I struggled with social anxiety for years, even when I started making YouTube videos. So today, I want to share my 7 best tips or exercises for overcoming social anxiety and shyness. I am not a medical professional, and if you have depression or anxiety you should talk to your doctor.

    I thought I was the only who suffered from this.. relieved . I experienced the same thing in highschool. But now I think I have gotten over that fear on my own. As you were giving these advices.. I realized this was just how I got over it. Perfect advices👍

    The hardest is trying to cold approach a hot girl you're attracted to and talk to her in person.

    My social anxiety mainly comes from the way I look, being overweight, having dark circles, etc. I'm scared to go outside because I get the fear that people are looking at me, laughing or thinking omg, he's fat. I also have some pretty bad dark circles under my eyes. I get anxious when I'm talking to someone people I know they are looking at my dark circles and thinking, is this guy on drugs, does he get sleep at all, or whatever. Back in High School, omg, it was the WORSE!!! I had some really bad anxiety sweats. Just sitting there in the class room, I would start sweating if I started to think of negative thoughts. My sweating anxiety isn't so bad today, it's gotten a lot better, but I still do from time to time only if I'm in a situation I can't get out of or if I'm doing anything physical.

    I know what I am to do to over come these problems today, it's going to take some work though.

    Basically all comes down to practice. The more you practice anything the better you get at it. Practice socializing as much as possible.

    I never liked talking to store employees. I have always struggled to talk to anybody I don't know. I would rather wander a store for an hour looking for 1 product than asking an associate "hey, where's the _____"

    Pretty serendipitous this video appeared. I struggle with SA off and on and it's been tough lately, so today I decided to re-read How to Be Yourself, which I consider the bible of the condition. I felt great afterwards and then this video was the icing on the cake. This progression is really valuable and something I plan on starting. Thank you, Ryan

    I wanna add something positive to the 3 seconds rule. 3 years ago I was about to go in the supermarket when I saw a cute looking girl near the entrance, counted till 3 then went and approached her. She's been my girlfriend since and all of her girlfriends and family say that's so sweet. It is actually that powerful. Too many times we are just caught up in our minds overthinking. Next time just count till 3 and go, if it's the right person, it will go so well, if not…well, it doesn't matter anyway I would say.

    I used to be a very anxious person I didn’t talk to anyone if no reason to that’s why I am single for 19 years 😂 but after I worked as a cashier I am very good hooker now. Unfortunately covid made my single for another year 🤕

    Wow! I started off watching your videos so I could manage & invest my money better. I would’ve never guessed that you struggled with this. I struggle w/ social anxiety as well, but I’ve been having success getting over it through my photography. Speaking to clients & directing them boosted my confidence & a regular photoshoot always turns into a great conversation. I wish you & everyone else in this comment section much love & luck on their journey. We’ll overcome this together ❤️❤️❤️
