How To Voice Your Opinions As An Anxious Person

 Not being able to voice your opinion during a phase of social anxiety causes you to feel left out or even feel that your opinion does not matter as much. This is wrong. Your opinion matters as much as the next person. Sometimes a few reasons that you cannot voice your opinion is because you feel like your voice is not good enough or you feel excluded.

So How Can I Improve My Voice?

Well you cannot change your voice but you can always improve how you talk. Here are a few rules to follow!

  • Use multiple tones to talk!
  • Don't be too quite
  • Don't mumble
  • Don't talk too slow
  • Don't talk too fast
  • Don't talk in a high pitch
  • Don't talk in a low pitch

Why? Just because people like calm and collected personalities. Learn to breathe properly, breathe from your diaphragm! Just remember everyone's voice is different and that's okay! It's how you present it that matters.

What If They Judge Me? 

This is something someone with social anxiety constantly thinks that people are judging them. For this you need to understand that not everyone judges you! It is just a feeling from the inside. People with social anxiety usually feel that they are criticised, or judged for every action but in reality, no one will even remember what you said or did in a week. One way to feel better about this is by going through Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. People who have any type of Anxiety have felt way better by going through CBT. Now people think this, I have social anxiety, how do I even call a therapist for help? There are so many ways, ask your parents, email them or ask your friends to.
Don't give up because you struggle, understand how the struggle can make you stronger.

So the takeaway? Go through some therapy and practice a new talking style, the more you learn about your problems, the better you will feel. Ask us anything in the comments below and take care!
