I have a lot of social aniexty, hard to look my own brother in the eyes when we speak sometimes. I feel it inside me when I pass a person who is extroverted, I feel like I'm all shaky inside, and the worst fear is that they'll notice me as shy. I fear that the most and will try anything to mask that. Cause I need to always look super confident. I put a lot of pressure on myself to uphold that look. For some reason I put this belief in my head that if an extroverted person sees me shy my whole world will crumble. I know it's a fake fear but it's so hard to shake. And I feel the other person will see my shyness and be shocked and act like they have never seen anything like this before, when I know everyone has some degree of shyness in them. I hate shyness!!!

Also, my shyness I really see it as a hugh life hindering problem. I think about it everyday. I wish I can just power over it and say, it's not a hugh part of my everyday life, it's a small glitch in my life. Because by saying its a hugh part of life, I feed the fear 100 % which to me is a terrible thing to do. I don't want to feed this fear anymore!

Dr. Richards author of "Overcoming Social Anxiety", the step by step program offers online therapy sessions. I would definitely recommend that over any other. I would do it if I had a more serious case of anxiety, but I don't so am going to erase my fears by reading the book and practicing on the general public. My ultimate goal is to join toastmasters and give speeches.

I tried to do 1 or 2 research studies, but I didn't even get through them, it was boring and not helpful.

yes, roberH is obviously affiliated with that website,
and i think all the information to heal ourselves is already for free available one way or another.

social anxiety is just in the mind it doesnt not need expensive medical treatment.
accepting ourselves and our lives and our position in life, is the most healing thing we can do.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." - The cure

I don't know if this applies but ive been listening to a range of cognitive behavioural therapy podcasts and SA podcasts on youtube for free. They have been quite helpful for me.

Have you ever considered letting your fears just be? I know this sounds nuts and for years I put on a fake serious, tough guy macho look. But it's just that an act. Why not embrace your fears and if they give you funny looks who cares? It's okay to be shy and we all experience it at some point.

Yeah, I think that there may be hope in these paid therapy sites but I really believe that anyone can create a "social anxiety cure" that is not real, and sell it on the market without getting in trouble.

No disrespect to the therapy sites already mentioned here but, that is what I believe. We've really gone through enough already and why should we pay for something that we should really get for free.
