BY FAR THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ, helped a LOT!!!!!!!!!!!
Get "The Power of Now" by Eckhardt Tolle, it helped me so much I can't even tell you. I read it a year ago (a couple times) and I still use the concepts in it in my daily life and think about it all the time and it changed my life. I've dealt with a mild case of social anxiety for years and always wondered why the hell I was so anxious all the time, and this book helped me learn what to do about it. Basically, social anxiety stems from overanalyzing everything. You're upset because you think too much: fear of what will happen, stuff you don't like that's happened to you, etc. You're NEVER really thinking about what you're doing at this moment. You live in either the past or future, which is just awful and makes you feel like crap. Life isn't about correcting deficiencies. Please just read the book, and if you wanna ask me some questions about it, please feel free and I will do what I can to help you!
