The reason why people have social anxiety usually boils down to the lack of self belief. I want you to know that you are worth much more than you think you are. You were born a champion. Don’t think you are any more inferior to a champion. You were a champion as soon as you were conceived in your mother’s womb. Learn to walk it out by being confident in whatever you do. Also remember that other people’s opinions about you do not matter. Just be proud of who you are and as time goes by, other people will notice a change in you. They will see you emitting positive vibes of confidence.

Don’t Be A Perfectionist

Let me continue with my self help tips. Sometimes the reason why people get social anxiety is because they don’t know how to start a conversation. This boils down to not knowing what to say, but a deeper root could be the person wanting to be a perfectionist. Yes, you can also point out that maybe the person does not believe in himself or herself. I have already addressed that issue earlier, and that has its place. However, for those who may already have their confidence going, there could also be a problem with wanting to be perfect. Look, let me tell you frankly that we are all human and we make mistakes in life. You may not say the right things to other people, and they may take offence, but that’s okay. It would be better to learn from your mistake than to not make any mistakes at all. Anyway most people are forgiving, so just stop trying to be perfect.

Make New Friends

That brings me to my last point in this self help tips. You will not be able to improve yourself if you are constantly sticking to the same few friends you have. Your friends will probably be used to you being quiet and afraid to talk. You need to get to know more people. That will help you overcome your social anxiety and at the same time develop your confidence.

I hope you have benefitted from these self help tips. Do remember these points the next time you are in a social engagement.
