“Social anxiety isn’t a choice. I wish people knew how badly I wish I could be like everybody else. How hard it is to be affected by something that can bring me to my knees, every single day” – Unknown.
Socializing is supposed to be fun right? That’s what we’re told, what we hear, and what we see. We see the food, drinks, smiles and laughter. But what lurks beneath is the overwhelming fear that some of us carry like an exhausting burden we cannot seem to shake. At Life Resolutions Windsor we understand this plight and when you are ready, we’ll be waiting with open arms.
This disorder occurs when someone experiences extreme anxiety in social environments. It’s vastly different from being a little nervous at a gathering where you don’t know many people. Or anxious about a date you have later that day. It’s a crippling condition that makes anything that requires social interaction unbelievably stressful. Those who suffer from this will shut themselves away in their rooms while others enjoy the sun and each other’s company.
If these words mirror your life, then you probably feel scared and alone. But you’re not. We are here to help and with the guidance of a qualified psychologist these dark clouds of misery and fear will disappear.
