It’s amazing how little things can have such a big impact.
The hype around Pokémon Go seems to finally be dying down, but the impact it has had on folks with social anxiety has only just begun. This super cool Facebook post explains how the popular game has made socializing and going out much easier, and even fun, for those of us with social anxiety.
Social Anxiety isn’t just feeling “nervous” before a first date, or having an awkward moment in a big crowd. It is a mental illness that can totally debilitate people from social settings and make them feel isolated from the world. If there is something helping people — even if that something is a game — that is really truly awesome.
