“To Generalize Other People Limits Our Ability To Be More.”
We are social creatures who have this ability to push ourselves away from what should be natural. Natural should be the way we were as children. Interacting with others, learning from them, and creating lasting bonds and circles. As adults though, we become reminded of all the reasons for why we won’t be accepted and how judgement will be placed upon us by others.
Our realities are created based on our perceptions. We can find the evidence within others that can promote the opposite of our limited views of people.
But we have to look for it. If we don’t we are slaves to our core beliefs which are targeted towards avoidance and ultimately social anxiety. We live in a world of billions of people and somehow the majority of people today are lonely and living without purpose.
It’s unfortunate, and I will do everything in my power to open up your eyes to a new way of approaching the world and ending your anxiety for good. In the beginning of my ‘stepping out party’ as I like to call it (placing myself into the uncomfortable scenarios I had been avoiding) it felt like my life was in danger.
Since the part of the brain that activates during physical pain also activates during emotional pain, I felt like I was on a cliff about to jump! But I was just speaking to someone, how does that work?
Very naturally in fact. In the old days we had tribes, we had groups of people that we trusted and becoming ostracized from those circles ultimately meant death (due to the vast landscape that held creatures of all sorts that were threats to our lives). We are stronger with numbers than we are alone was the motto, and so that part of our brain still exists today.
In today’s powerful episode of the anxiety guy podcast I’ll be showing you:
- How social anxiety manifested in your life, possibly without you even knowing it
- What sort of thinking and behaving keeps you sensitized around people
- The keys to eliminating social anxiety from your life and getting back to your dreams
