Development of social skills
Effective communication-enhancing your social skills
Establishing and maintaining good relationships with other people can greatly reduce stress and anxiety in life. In fact, improving their social development is linked to better mental health in general, since having good friends can act as a “buffer” for feelings of anxiety and bad mood.
For some people, however, anxiety can be the decisive factor in deciding to avoid social situations or opportunities where it is possible to develop relationships and create friendships. This is especially true if there is a feeling of anxiety about society and the need to make friends is accompanied by fear and insecurities not knowing how to cope.
Unfortunately, one of the consequences of avoiding social situations is that you never get the chance to:
–build personal trust by interacting with others
–develop communication skills that increase the chances of successful relationships.
For example, if you are afraid to go to parties or invite someone to an appointment, your lack of experience and/or little confidence will make it more difficult to know how to handle these situations (such as what to wear, what to say), etc. People often have the skills they need but lack the confidence to use them. Either way, the practice will increase your confidence and improve your communication skills.
