How do you handle your social anxiety?

anyone that has anxiety that has stopped you from accomplishing things that you're capable of, how do you or how are you overcoming it? I prefer advice from those that have been to therapists, thank you. 馃槍 I'm ready to live my life.

Ah, lately, i've just been throwing myself into it. I don't have a whole lot of reason to be social, but I do find myself being social at places I habit and others I don't. Work at the University, totally social, the gym, not social, the climbing gym, depends :)

How do [i]I[/i] handle social anxiety?
Exposure.
The more I'm around people/strangers the calmer I am.

I go to counseling and have talked about my anxiety with a doctor but it doesn't work out too well they usually just give you some sort of medication and then call it a day but I've found other ways to cope with anxiety so it's all good

[@1225056,HiThereyouare] I keep myself occupied doing things I like (coloring, video games, or simply just talking about what's on my mind with a friend or a relative.)
[@567763,blackcar] but what do you do when you're faced with social situations around others, for instance a presentation or party.

[@1225056,HiThereyouare] I just deal with those situations when the time comes. If I say something stupid or I embarrass myself (which was happened many times in the past) I'll get over it eventually and life goes on.
