    SHY NO LONGER: Almost everyone gets a little anxious or embarrassed in front of other people now and then, though some of us are shyer than others. Sometimes, though, the anxiety can be so intense that it stops us from doing the things we enjoy, or starts interfering in our daily lives. In this group we will explore the benefits of socializing, stepping out of our fear, increased social interaction, and the enriching of our wellbeing.
