Social Anxiety is a Spectrum

This actually feeds your social anxiety so it gets more powerful.

I have seen it with people that enjoyed dating, only to come out of a long term relationship and dread it.

I have seen it with new moms that loved being social and meeting new people, only to dread going to make new friends in this new stage of their life.

You are going to have to lean into it, feel it more, experience it, and take ownership for it.

Get to know your thoughts (conscious and subconscious), recognize that judgement is coming from your own brain, challenge them and take small steps to disprove them.

Talk to someone in your co-working space as you get a coffee.

Get out and go to the networking event, even if it means roping in a friend or colleague.

These steps may seem small, but they are important first steps.
