Social anxiety is debilitating and holds many people ‘prisoners’ of their own imagination. This type of anxiety usually starts with shyness, but is almost always increased by ‘well-intentioned’ prompting by others. “Don’t be silly… theres nothing to worry about!” (And of course, something happens!) There could be trauma, bullying or mocking memories but ultimately it is our own ‘imagining’ disasters happening that keep us frozen. Life is for living. Here are some tips and hints to help you overcome your fears and start interacting with others.

Your Past is Your Key to Success

The foundation of our identity has been set by the time we are 7 years old. We absorbed everything, good or bad that happens. Everything we hear, see, feel or experience we believe is ‘about us!’ Our beliefs are based on these perceptions. That is scary. Imagine asking a 7 year old to make decision for your future. As we grow, these ‘unconscious beliefs’ determine how we view our world. Most are not true but influence us nonetheless. Its time to change. The key to success is facing the past, updating our beliefs and moving into the future with confidence and a new identity.

Are You Living in the Past

Living in the past creates fear, anxiety, and depression. It sucks the joy out of living! Whether you are sad that you have ‘lost’ something or someone, or fearful ‘something’ may happen again in the future, – you cannot live in the present. Your life is consumed by ‘what if!’ It is a fantasy world that creates anxiety and depression. Your only job on Earth is to contribute and be happy. It’s time to get back to living.

Trauma

Trauma can be physical or invisible! Physical trauma is seen, accepted and sympathised! Mental Trauma is the ‘invisible trauma’ often diagnosed as long term stress, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress(PTSD).  Mental Health trauma is a silent robber of the ‘Joy of Living’ and it can affect anyone.  It is invisible! Never forget to ask: R U OK?
