Social anxiety often causes individuals to avoid social interactions and situations, which can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. This avoidance can make coping with anxiety and stress more challenging, and it can also hinder the development and maintenance of personal relationships. People with social anxiety may find themselves relying heavily on a few close relationships, such as those with family members or a significant other, which can place additional strain on these connections. Therapy offers valuable strategies for managing social anxiety, improving social skills, and reducing reliance on safety behaviors, ultimately leading to healthier and more fulfilling relationships.
