When you’re going out with others or mingle with friends or others in social situations – do you feel very self-conscious? Is the thing that’s foremost on your mind the thought of what others think of you in these situations, and whether you’re making some kind of social mistake? Are you constantly in a slight anxiety that someone might make fun of you because of something you do, say, or the way you look? If you are too self-conscious
Usually people are too self-conscious about the same things over and over again. It might be your accent, or the way you sound when you talk with someone, or about how articulate you are, or how you dress, or smell. Whatever it is – simply become fully consciously aware of the issues which you feel self-conscious about.
(This might sound paradoxically – after all, if you’re self-conscious about something, what good could there be in becoming consciously aware of the details? Well, one reason is simply that often we get so carried away by our emotions that we can’t identify the exact triggers easily).
Usually people who are too self-conscious have a vivid imagination when it comes to social situations. What happens is they mentally see themselves from the outside – kind of the way another person would see them, and then they imagine something funny or strange or embarrassing about themselves. This happens so fast, and often on a subconscious level, that many people aren’t even aware that they are doing it.
So one of the things you can do is to simply relax and make a deliberate choice to visualize yourself in a more positive light. Before you attend a social situation next time, visualize yourself in advance interacting positively and confidently with others, and imagine a pleasant atmosphere where you relate to others and have fun. The more often and vivid and realistic you imagine yourself this way, the better it will be.
Self-Consciousness Is A Good Thing
Believe it or not, self-consciousness is actually a good thing. But too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing too. So the goal is not to completely stop being self-conscious – it’s simply to pay more attention to your environment, while still being aware of yourself, and not creating some kind of self-judgmental drama in your mind. However, I do now that that’s not really that “simple”. After all, it’s a psychological pattern which you’ve already engaged in for a very long time, and it might feel as if that’s just the way you are, and there’s nothing you can do about it. But realize that simply shifting some of your awareness from yourself to others in social situations is definitely something you’re capable of with some training.
