The book The Social Skills Guidebook is written by Chris MacLeod MSW. THIS BOOK IS FOR ANYONE who feels they need to brush up on their social skills. You may feel shy, anxious, and insecure around people. You find it difficult to strike up a conversation and leave a good impression on others. You’re lonely and isolated and don’t go out as often as you’d like, or you just have a few casual acquaintances and want closer relationships. Maybe all of the above. Perhaps you feel that you somehow missed out on learning the unwritten social rules that everyone else seemed to have mastered by the time they were thirteen.
If you have these social difficulties, you are not alone. You may feel like an exceptionally broken outcast, but these are all common problems. Millions of people feel the same as you. The good news is that these social problems can be solved. The concept of “late blooming” exists for a reason. Many people were shy or lonely for a period of their lives before they developed their interpersonal skills and outgrown shyness or loneliness. You can increase your self-confidence. You can learn to manage shyness and anxiety and the self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that feed them. You can practice and perfect your conversation skills.
- Mental barriers include shyness, social anxiety, and low self-confidence.
- Less-developed conversation skills
- Lack of friends and an unsatisfactory social life
