Building Social Skills
“The moment of crisis had come, and I must face it. My old fears, my diffidence, my shyness, my hopeless sense of inferiority must be conquered now and thrust aside. If I failed now, I should fail forever.”
― Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca
Social Skills Improve Lives
Human beings are social by nature. It’s no wonder that having strong social skills tends to make people happier and more successful in their lives. The recognition of the importance of our interpersonal interactions can also cause us to suffer some social anxiety.
Do you find social interactions intimidating, uncomfortable, or unpleasant? Are you terrified at the thought of speaking in front of a group of people? Do you dread being asked to speak at an important function?
If so, you are certainly not alone.
Social anxiety is not uncommon, and it affects people from all walks of life. Unfortunately, many try to avoid social situations whenever possible as a way to deal with their fear. But avoidance – and the very feelings that social anxiety brings up for you – can hold you back from your professional and personal goals.

Am I Introverted or Socially Anxious? Scientific American
“I wondered how many people there were in the world who suffered, and continued to suffer, because they could not break out from their own web of shyness and reserve, and in their blindness and folly built up a great distorted wall in front of them that hid the truth.”
