written many articles and blog posts about my former problem
with severe Social Anxiety and shyness. These
days I'm not embarrassed to admit it, and in fact, being open
and honest about the situation is a big part of the reason
I no longer suffer with these problems.
the years, I sought help in many different areas to try to
tame the problem, but unfortunately overcoming social anxiety
is not something many practitioners have first-hand experience
first-hand knowledge of shyness and social anxiety, it is
difficult or impossible for someone to give you the "right:
advice" to help you overcome these issues.
was inspired to change by reading about an artist I respected
and admired who actually admitted he was dealing with severe
shyness and social anxiety. My first step toward overcoming
these problem probably started on that very day.
that day, I realized that the shame and embarrassment I felt
about my shyness was a BIG part of the problem. And in order
to overcome the social issues I was dealing with, I would
need to be open and honest about the situation.
