More Than You See 3.5 – Shyness vs Social Anxiety
This week we discuss social anxiety and how it differs from general shyness in social situations. We discuss the actual definition and symptoms of social anxiety, some ways you can treat this disorder, and I share some tips and tricks of things that I do when I am feeling uncomfortable in new social situations. There is so much to discuss when it comes to anxiety, but hopefully some of these thoughts and tips will help you enter a new social situation with a brand new point of view about the world.
Every week join me, Deborah Lee Smith actor, filmmaker, mental health advocate for a conversation on mental health like you’ve never heard before. My platform, More Than You See is dedicated to exploring nontraditional mental health resources to help you build your own emotional wellness toolkit.
I absolutely discuss therapy, the importance of medication, and highlight organizations around the world devoted to destigmatizing mental health, but I also focus on books, personal practices, podcasts, TED Talks etc, because here’s the thing… I’m not a licensed practitioner or therapist. I’m just a woman exploring my own journey with mental health and sharing my experiences and the experiences of the community with you, the listener. Join me for a weekly conversation every Monday that will be sure to bring a smile to your face and help you feel a little less alone. Because we’re all More Than You See.
