WHAT IS SOCIAL ANXIETY?
The main symptom of social anxiety is a fear of social situations, which typically stems from worrying about feeling humiliated, embarrassed, or judged in front of other people (Zanjani, Jani, & Amiri, 2018).
Do you feel panicky any time you need to go in front of your class to give a presentation? Are you worrying about what others are thinking? Do you often feel judged or like people don't like you? These are all signs that you may have social anxiety.
