Are you suffering from social anxiety?
Everyone feels nervous in some social situations. For instance, when going on a first date, interviewing for a job, or when giving a presentation in front of a class. Individuals suffering from Social Anxiety Disorder experience an intense fear of being judged, criticized, and ultimately rejected by others. The anxiety often results in choosing to not engage in or to avoid activities where embarrassment is a possibility such as asking someone out, developing and nurturing a creative talent such as singing or painting, applying for a promotion at work, or completing a college degree.
