Happy Friday everyone 🌻🥳
Here are 3 TED talks that I've watched and wanted to share because all of them taught me something interesting and helpful about social anxiety. I hope you watch and enjoy them.
A very honest and beautiful 5:28 min long talk by Victoria Bristow about how to go from not being able to leave the house alone for 3 years, to having an understanding and close friendship with her anxiety.
A very informative, interesting, and clear overview of what research and statistics tell us about what social anxiety is, and isn't by Dr. Fallon Goodman, Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida.
A genuinely funny and helpful 15:31 min description of a 100-day experiment in rejection by Jia Jiang, about focusing on what we can learn from staying with the fear of rejection, and on our own reactions to rejection - instead of the rejections themselves.
It would be lovely to hear what you think if you watch any of these.
Or if you have any other videos that you have learned from or enjoyed, please share them below :)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead 😊🥐🫖
