you see the 'social anxiety' itself as a term implies about too much caring what others think of you. I'am not saying that it's impossible to have social anxiety if you accept yourself, but you would certainly stop caring about it so much and wouldn't think about yourself as a less of a person than some random Joe (feeling comfortable in your skin the way you are right now), which in itself is enough of a self-esteem drive to prevent depression and feelings alike. And would you rather get rid of the SA and be unhappy for million other reasons OR be happy having the SA?
