In order to truly heal and transform our life, we need to clear the pain stored in our body and to upgrade our limiting subconscious beliefs

First of all, I want you to know that you are not alone. Basically everyone has some degree of social anxiety.

Everyone wants connection, but it can be so scary. Remember that others are in the same boat as you even if you don't see it on the outside, so you already have that in common with them!

I find that it is really helpful to give our self a little pep talk before we enter a social situation.
Perhaps your scared inner child needs to hear:

-You have a lot of fun stories to share.
-People enjoy being around you.
-Going up to someone can be scary, but it might be really fun.
-You are so cool as you are. There is no need to be any particular way.

Maybe the part of you that is afraid needs to have permission from you:

-It is ok to not know what to say.
-It is ok to stand alone.
-It is ok if not everyone gets you. Be yourself anyways.
-You don't have to be perfect in every conversation.
-You don't have to be impress anyone. You are already awesome, no matter what!

As we are able to increase our self-esteem, social anxiety will not feel as powerful. A lot of our self-esteem is due to subconscious beliefs about our self.

Repetition is very important for upgrading our subconscious beliefs. Keep telling yourself how amazing you are.

After events, congratulate yourself for all the little risks you took like complimenting someone. Remind yourself how other people seemed to enjoy being around you.

Hope this helped me ;)

My passion is to help women raise their vibrations from the inside out within the mind, body, and soul, to reach their highest potential and live a life of purpose. Through, Nutrition, mindful exercises, meditation, Enhancing Self-Worth and Confidence** Through the practices and knowledge of Jungian Psychology I work with Self-Reflection and Awareness: Encourage women to explore their values, strengths, and passions through self-reflection exercises. Foster awareness of negative self-talk and limiting beliefs that may hinder confidence and self-worth. Spirituality focusing on our mind, body, and soul.

First of all keep in mind that we are all here experiencing no one is perfect we all make mistakes and we are learning as we go through this life. People’s perceptions are a reflection of who they are and their experiences don’t worry be yourself the raw pure version of your existence. Having said that there are several strategies you can try to lower anxiety in social situations:Deep breathing exercises: Practice deep, slow breathing to calm your nervous system.Positive self-talk: Remind yourself of your strengths and accomplishments, that it's okay to feel anxious. Gradual exposure: Gradually expose yourself to social situations that make you anxious to build tolerance.we dint become masters by reading books but by practicing. Focus on the present: Pay attention to what's happening in the moment rather than worrying about what might happen.Practice mindfulness or meditation: These techniques can help you stay grounded and reduce anxiety.Set realistic goals: Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be perfect in social situations.Seek support: Talk to a trusted friend, family member, or therapist about your anxiety and how they can support you.Finding what works best for you may require some experimentation, so be patient and compassionate with yourself as you navigate social anxiety. If you think you need help with self worth or self love and overcoming past traumas please suck help form a holistic therapist who can help you get to a place of self acceptance.
