Everyone has social insecurity. Some of us may appear confident in public or when we are dating someone new, but inside deep inside, we also have our own baggage to deal with. Some of us just hide or handle it better than others. Despite this, there is still hope for those who are fearful to connect with people.
Beat Social Insecurity By Changing Your Perspective
Where does social insecurity from? The very root of it is actually fear. People who are socially awkward always have a lot of worries in their minds. They’re worried that they may not be liked, or that people are judging them right from the start. It isn’t always the case. If you’re riddled with social insecurity, you should know that:
1. People are too busy to think about you.
When you are in a social setting, everyone is most likely going around and talking. You may have this innate fear that people are looking at you or that they are judging you on what you’re wearing. Well, they aren’t because their thoughts are elsewhere.
2. People are tolerant.
If you make a few mistakes, don’t worry. People are more tolerant than you think. Most probably, the mistakes that you are going to make are very minor. The truth is that the people around won’t even care. They’ll just say that it’s okay and that everyone makes mistakes.
3. Remember that you don’t have to be perfect.
No one is perfect in this world. If you bare this in mind, you will quickly realize that everyone around you will bound to make mistakes as well. So there’s no point in focusing on your own mistakes when others understand that mistakes are bound to happen, especially if you’re the type who is shy and awkward in groups.
