The Double Agent Role Of Internet On Your Quest To Overcoming Social Anxiety
Some say that Internet is the best thing that ever happened to mankind while others say that it only makes us socialize less.
So yes, in a way, Internet plays a double agent role on your quest to overcoming social anxiety.
On one hand, it allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home and socialize with like-minded people over the Internet.
So instead of going out where you could actually improve your social skills, you stay at home where you’re more or less safe behind your computer screen.
It allows you to be anonymous.
It allows you to be anyone you want to be.
You can be yourself without being afraid that you’ll be judged for your “unusual” behavior.
No one ever has to know who you are.
No one has to know you have social anxiety.
But unfortunately that “false” safety drags you away from facing your fears and dealing with your social anxiety once and for all.
It keeps you stuck in your comfort zone and gives you a false impression that everything’s fine.
But it’s not all bad and ugly.
