The pain of shyness
Brain scans have revealed that feelings of loneliness invoke similar brain activity to that which is seen when pain is felt. There is a saying ‘painfully shy’ and this may not be too far from the truth.
Social anxiety is one reason why people avoid going out and therefore begin to experience feelings of loneliness. The longer one spends alone, the more fear can develop surrounding going out into social situations and the cycle perpetuates.
Hypnosis and coaching can help you if you have fears or social anxieties by helping you identify the fears you feel and work through ways in which you can become more comfortable thus breaking the cycle and allowing you more freedom.
