How To Combat Fear Of Social Events
Fear of social events is a sort of apprehension when you are afraid of being humiliated and criticized in social gatherings. You are afraid of being embarrassed before others.
This fear form has a family background and it is more worsened with depression and alcoholism.
Fear of social events begins at a young and adolescent stage. As a victim of this phobia, you are of the opinion that all people except you are competent as well as confident in this world.
Even when you commit a small mistake, you feel as if you have done something unpardonable. In such situations you blush badly and feel as if everyone is watching you.
If you have social phobia then you are extremely scarce when speaking to your boss or someone of higher authority, giving a public speech or when you are going for a date with your partner. You don't feel like attending parties or social gatherings.
Other circumstances of social phobia include:
- Going out to dine with others
- Trying to write in presence of others, say for when you sign a check you can't do it properly if someone is standing before you
- You cannot use a public restroom
- You feel awkward when you are talking to someone on the phone
Remember, shyness and fear of social events are not the same. Social phobia can damage the way you live. It even causes problems in your career and social relationships. They are many people who do not get a promotion only because they are unable to give public presentations.
If you have social phobia, you know that your fear is illogical but you cannot avoid the situation. You are in fact in a helpless state. Thus, you tend to avoid the circumstance with all your might.
As a sufferer of social event fears, you always have the fear that you might act with such stupidity that others will make fun of you and make you feel embarrassed and humiliated.
It so happens that when you are exposed to a feared social situation, an invariable anxiety is readily provoked taking the form of a circumstantially predisposed panic attack.
In case of children, when they experience fear of social events they express their anxiety through crying, tantrums, freezing or shrinking especially when they come across unknown and unfamiliar people.
