Reminds me of:
Patient: “Doctor, you’ve GOT to help me! I have this terrible phobia of being buried ALIVE in a BOX!”
Doctor: “My advice, two words, easy enough to remember — STOP IT!!”
I think this recent (within the last 20 years or so) rash of ‘social anxiety’ has a direct correlation with the rise of the internet. I mean, just look at the entire foolish notion of “social media”, a supposed social solution/resource when it’s actually anything BUT — sitting in your room & staring at a screen is the furthest thing FROM social, in all reality. A lot like the old adage (paraphrasing): “I’m trying to find a solution to a problem that didn’t even EXIST until I CREATED the problem!” Rather foolish and inane, no doubt.
As with so many things these days, we feel the need to assign everything a label or a syndrome. What was once known as shyness, awkwardness, cold feet, the jitters, and/or simply wanting to procrastinate/avoid reality for whatever reasons — normal feelings that we ALL have that need to be gotten over — has come to be known as ‘social anxiety’.
We’re going to be locked in to a very unpleasant future, something akin to a sci-fi nightmare dystopia, if we’re not careful.
I don't think there's a single qualified medical practitioner in this country that wouldn't refer that patient to either a mental health facility or a counselor. Paranoia ALWAYS stems from something legitimate; either a mental health crisis, or external influences that aren't immediately obvious.
Don't just write someone off as "crazy" or "weak" or a "sensitive snowflake" just because you don't understand the complexities of their situation
If you're depressed just cheer up.
Same thing basically.
"If you're homeless, buy a house. Simple"
Person A: i have fears of hurdles
