Does anyone think that religion will help overcome SA? Believing in God or having some sort of faith will help one overcome one's insecurities and anxieties?

Hey Seagreen16,

For me personally my Faith has helped. I'm slowly starting to finally get help for my SA because of it.

I came across this inspirational article cited here on SAS a couple weeks ago: http://oneway.jesusanswers.com/socialanxiety.html
It's a faith-based approach to conquering SA. At the very least, I think it's an interesting read. Take a look if you like. :)

Peace to you,
Marcus

It's helped me. I've found hope and purpose for my life, and a reason to get up every morning. I've found the more I get to know God, and the more I trust Him with my SA and give my fears to Him, the more peace and freedom I have in my life. For me, it all started with the same question you asked Seagreen16.

Spirituality has helped me as well. Mostly concerning my depression and suicidal thoughts. I now believe that I am meant to be alive and that I do have a purpose in the world. I do not believe in God, as I am a Wiccan Buddhist, but knowing that I can make a difference is a wonderful feeling. Spirituality has helped to fulfill my life. I am more open-minded now and willing to get out and do things. It can still be a struggle with my social anxiety, but it is definitely becoming better. For me spirituality has change my life and for that I am eternally thankful.
