Do you ever find yourself struggling in social situations, feeling like you don't quite measure up? Do you feel like others are constantly scrutinizing you, and that the things you have to say are not as intelligent as you would like them to be? It can be exhausting to constantly monitor your posture, gait, and body language, and many people even experience physical symptoms like trembling that make it difficult to eat or drink. Despite these challenges, social groups can still be enjoyable - as long as you are able to avoid picking apart every detail of the experience the next day.
Isolating oneself from social interactions can result in several negative outcomes. Not only can it cause instability in one's mood, but it can also disrupt sleep patterns and even impair memory function. Moreover, a lack of external stimulation can lead to symptoms of depression.
