I recently learned from a psychological article that there is no way to "overcome mental illnesses," in the sense that there is no cure for them. Rather, one can treat it, that is reduce its severity to a point where it doesn't interfere with our purposes or goals.

In that case, one can't cure or overcome generalized social phobia but rather reduce its severity to just mild nervousness or shyness, where one can form meaningful relationships and have a career. I definitely want to live my life with just having a mild shyness to substitute for generalized social phobia permanently.
