Before we get to social anxiety, let’s take a minute and understand what anxiety really is. The term ‘anxiety’ may be defined as a state of fear, worry, nervousness, apprehension, unease, agitation and more.
Social anxiety is a situation in which one deals with the fear of social interactions/ conversations especially with someone new. It occurs due to constant overthinking about how one will be perceived or judged by the others. To be precise it is the fear of not being socially accepted or in short a fear of rejection.
