Social anxiety can affect the quality of your life

If you deal with social anxiety, you already know how debilitating it can be. With blurred thoughts about how others perceive you, fears of humiliating yourself, or even fears of eating in public dominating your mind, it can feel impossible to navigate through social situations. You're not alone, though. As one of the most common disorders, social anxiety walks hand-in-hand with depression. Up to 50% of folks with social anxiety also deal with depression. And if that isn't enough, social anxiety can keep you trapped in your own expectations because it makes it hard to grow.

Nonetheless, the treatment of social anxiety disorders has grown exponentially over the past few years. With a good doctor or therapist's guidance, many different therapies have shown high levels of effectiveness. If social anxiety (or depression) stops you from living your best life, remember that it's a solid move to reach out and ask for help!

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
