But here’s something to ponder: whose thought?
“The thought of being judged…” “The thought of failing in front of others…”
Ever wonder who is doing all this doubting? Who else - but the person himself. It’s him. It’s her. It’s actually in all of us to talk ourselves down. Statistics reveal that 3% of women and 2% of men will experience severe forms of social anxiety while still in their youth, and that as many as 12% will experience a severe form of it at least once in their lifetime. (Asher, Asnaani, & Aderka, 2017)
“To understand social anxiety, one has to distinguish between a social anxiety disorder, which is the most severe form of the problem and debilitating in more than one area of a person’s life, and what is called “non-clinical” social anxiety which is far more common. More serious social anxiety has long-term negative consequences for young people so it’s important to recognize the early signs of the disorder and prevent even mild social anxiety before it gets worse,” said Michael Ungar, Director of the Resilience Research Centre at Dalhousie University and author of Change Your World: The Science of Resilience and the True Path to Success
