Facing your fears of rejection

Social Anxiety takes the form of fear of embarrassment, rejection or humiliation. Avoiding interactions increases anxiety and isolation. As crazy as it may sound, by deliberately experiencing a rejection, one can reduce the fear of it. To do so successfully, one must prepare their thinking processes to view the rejection not as a failure of a worthless person, but as a bold step of a normal person who can accept that not everyone has to like them, just a few.

    Well said Dr. Langlieb.
    This reminds me of getting back on the horse if you fell off. Not letting the fear beat you. Great post.
