What Is Social Anxiety?

Social anxiety is a common form of anxiety disorder. It is characterized by fear or anxiety of being judged, watched, or evaluated by other people in different social situations, such as job interviews, public talks, dating, or normal talks. These feelings may be very intense and uncontrollable, which subsequently affects their daily lives. Overall, this health issue is more prevalent in women than in men. Fortunately, it is possible to treat social anxiety and improve the symptoms over time. [1]
