WHY Your Desires To Avoid Certain
'Outcomes' In Social Situations ARE
The Causes of Social Anxiety Disorder
Within social situations, there are certain
'outcomes' that you desire to avoid. Your desires to avoid these
outcomes definitely are THE causes of Social Anxiety Disorder,
as I explained in my main article on the cause of SAD.
Having already made what the cause is
clear in that other article,
in this particular article I will show you theoretically WHY the desire
certain outcomes in social situations is the cause.
If you read through
it, my explanation will make so much sense that you'll feel unable to
leave SocialAnxietySolved.com until you've been enlightened on what the
SOLUTION to social anxiety is!
theory behind why desires to avoid
certain outcomes within social situations ARE the causes of SAD, begins
with the knowledge that the very purpose of anxiety is to help you
Anxiety prepares you so that you can run or
with optimum performance. This is made clear by the following 'clues'...
Your heart pumps faster than normal
A quicker heart rate supplies your muscles with plenty of oxygen. This
puts you in peak condition for intense physical activity (i.e. running
You get the sudden urge to visit the
Your body seeks to empty out all waste, thus making itself as light as
possible. Obviously if you're lighter, you can move quicker.
Your mouth becomes dry
Your body's water content is taken to your vital organs and muscles.
Those are the places that you would need water, should you have to
exert lots of energy.
Your skin becomes more pale
Your blood supply is directed heavily to your vital organs and muscles
during anxiety. This means that much less blood finds its way to your
skin - thus making you appear paler.
You get 'butterflies' (a queasy feeling in
Blood that is usually used to extract nutrients from food in the
intestines is diverted to vital organs and muscles. As a result,
digestion slows right down, thus creating the 'butterflies' feeling in
Your limbs shake
Your muscles become tense in preparation for a physical threat. That
tension causes shaking. If you forcefully tense your hand and arm right
now, you'll see that your hand starts to shake. It's the same thing
The other anxiety symptoms (above) cause your body temperature to rise.
Sweat simply prevents you from overheating by taking body heat away
when it evaporates.
Are you familiar
with those symptoms?
Does anxiety give you any of those
symptoms? And can you see that the purpose of them happening could only
be to maximize your ability to fight or run?
life was a lot more physically threatening than it is today in the
civilized world - which is an indication that the purpose of anxiety is
to get you ready for danger.
Can you think of any reason (other than for
self-protection) why, over thousands of years, the human body would
evolve to respond that way?
The explanation that makes sense is that
anxiety is 'wired' into all of us to prepare us to defend ourselves.
There is no other possible use or explanation for anxiety that makes
even close to this much sense.
Anxiety can only trigger if
a physical threat is perceived
Anxiety will only ever trigger if a
physical threat is perceived, because its purpose is to help you
protect yourself. I can't stress that enough: anxiety has your survival
as its utmost and only priority, therefore it can ONLY trigger due to
perceived physical threat.
Can't anxiety trigger without a perceived
physical threat? No it cannot, because that would require it to
contradict its sole reason for existing, which is to help you protect
Your anxiety triggers specifically in
social situations. This shows that the primal (anxiety triggering) part
of your brain MUST be perceiving social situations as a potential
Why does your desire to avoid
certain 'outcomes' within social situations,
cause your brain to perceive
such situations as threatening?
When your brain realizes that you DESIRE to
avoid a stimulus, it understands that the stimulus you want to avoid
could be a physical threat to you. Your DESIRE to avoid the stimulus
is, to the primal part of your brain, a sign that the stimulus could be
The human brain has evolved to understand
that if you find yourself wanting to avoid something, then that
‘something’, could be dangerous. Why? Well, because if that 'something’
wasn’t dangerous, then you wouldn’t be wanting to avoid it!
Your desire to avoid certain potential
outcomes within social situations is like a warning sign to the primal
part of your brain that social situations could be threatening. Anxiety
then triggers to help you deal with the ‘threat’, which of course, in
the case of SA, doesn't actually exist.
Survival is such a high priority to your
brain, that any slight indication of threat will trigger anxiety to
make sure you survive.
Your desire to avoid certain outcomes in
situations is enough of an indication that social situations could be
threatening - so anxiety triggers to prepare you for that potential
What I’m saying makes sense. Your desire to
avoid certain outcomes in social situations IS at least a slight
indication of threat - because if there were no threat, then why would
you want to avoid these outcomes so badly?
If the primal part of your brain could
speak, it's argument to you would be the following: “If it is true that
these potential outcomes wouldn't pose a threat, then you have no
reason to have this desire to avoid the outcomes.”
But you DO feel these desires to avoid
certain potential outcomes in social situations, and that’s enough
reason for social situations to be perceived as threatening by the
primal part of your brain.
Your brain figures that if you have this
DESIRE to avoid certain outcomes, then clearly those outcomes could be
threatening - because if they weren't, you wouldn't have such a strong
desire to avoid them in the first place!
It should now be becoming clear that your
desires to avoid certain outcomes within social situations are the
causes of Social Anxiety Disorder, because such desires are perceived
the primal part of your brain as an indication of potential
Your brain then 'tells' your body to engage
in anxiety symptoms – to
aid you in dealing with that threat.

certain outcomes within social situations are the causes of Social
