Social anxiety refers to the stress, worry, and fear associated with being in social settings and environments that involve human interactions. Many people who suffer from social anxiety may have a fear of being judged, viewed, or perceived in a negative light. Some individuals who have social anxiety may avoid social situations completely which can ultimately cause isolation; while others may use coping mechanisms to deal with the social interactions such as substance abuse. Understanding your anxiety and how to cope with it in healthy ways is a fundamental reason to seek the help of a therapist when suffering from social anxiety.
