People suffering from social anxiety very often also experience some level of panic attacks. Why? Because social interactions provide an endless procession of situations that have negative emotional "potential". And as a negative thinker, there's a good chance that you have a tendency to dwell on all those negative possibilities... a tendency that over time can transform into anxiety attacks. Moreover, anxiety in social situations can also become a trigger for panic (e.g. once you experience one attack around a group of people, similar situations and feelings are more likely to trigger other episodes in the future).
Now, there are many reasons people become socially uneasy. However, nearly all the reasons boil down to an underlying desire to avoid some sort of body energy that arises in social situations - perhaps nervousness, awkwardness, insecurity, or some other uncomfortable feeling, such as the ones below.
If you're struggling with social anxiety, think about what it is that causes your social discomfort. Is it fear of negative judgment? Rejection? That people won't like you? That you're not interesting enough?
Whatever that feeling is for you, ask yourself this question: Would you have a social anxiety problem if you knew you could handle that feeling? Do you think a socially anxious person would remain anxious for long if they learned to enjoy the feeling of approaching people - regardless of the outcome?
