What we're about
Welcome to The Beating Social Anxiety Together Group. My name is Chris, I created this group for people like me who have social anxiety. I had severe social anxiety for many years - at times it was so bad that it pretty much took over my life. I couldn’t do the things that I wanted to do. I felt trapped and depressed because I couldn’t do normal things like going to the shops, getting my haircut, going to group gatherings or do anything that involved public speaking. Over the years I lost many friends and became very distant from family members because I would always avoid any sort of event that involved socialising. Even walking out of my front door and going into the lift and facing my neighbours was a battle for me. I felt alone before I started this amazing group! Not long after I started this group I soon realised that there were so many other people who were going through the same thing as me, and I learnt how to get better - it wasn’t easy and it took a lot of effort and a lot of time. I still have social anxiety at times, but it is nothing compared to how it used to be.
Purpose of this group
I created this group to make a safe place where people who have social anxiety can come together, become friends, confront fears and beat social anxiety once and for all. I found social anxiety so hard to deal with but it became so much easier when I surrounded myself with supportive people who share the same issues.
