Life is a party. But it can be hard to enjoy if you feel uncomfortable being at a party.
It is not uncommon to feel awkward at social gatherings such as parties, meetings and other social events.
A lot of times it is brushed off as shyness. But for the person going through the discomfort of a social setting, it can be downright torture.
No one needs to tell you if you are not feeling your best at a social event. You know it. And possibly others can sense it as well that you are not very comfortable.
This is one of the ways in which social anxiety manifests itself.
Even if you take pride in calling yourself a nerd who is fashionably uncomfortable in social settings, some tapping on this issue can help you feel wonderfully at ease the next time you are at a party or an office meeting.
Read through the script below and see if it resonates with you. If you experience at least some of the symptoms covered in the script, you stand to gain from tapping through it.
One way to use this script is to look back at a social event you attended, and tune into the uncomfortable feelings while tapping along to this script.
Another way to use this script would be a few days before an upcoming event. Tap on it for a few days leading up to a party, meeting or any other social event you might be planning to attend.
EFT tapping set up
Even though I am distinctly uncomfortable at parties and social gatherings, I know that I’m not the only person in the Universe with this ‘problem’. I am fine just as I am.
Even though I feel inferior comparing myself to others in social situations, these comparisons only make the whole experience worse for me. I am opening up to the idea that I do not need to be the most perfect human being in order to feel accepted in a group. I am okay.
Even though I am afraid that I will act foolishly and embarrass myself in a social setting, I choose to consciously relax so that I can focus on my actions and responses better. And even if I mess up, I choose to accept myself anyway. If I won’t accept myself, who will?
