Youth is a period of dramatic changes and emotional turbulence in general, but we observe ambiguity about the exact definition and age range of the life stage. According to the United Nations’ Envoy on Youth, the age bracket for youth needs to be 15 – 35 instead of 15 – 24 years to enhance their participation in global issues. Other than a transition period of independence after dependent childhood, it marked intense behavioral changes.

One of the troubles they face includes social anxiety or social anxiety disorder. The emotional and physiological changes put young ones on the verge of developing their shell of shyness or social awkwardness. They often experience unreasonable fear about situations, performance apprehensions, or being evaluated by the people around them. The feelings related to others’ like their judgments, criticism, or rejection, are feared the most. They feel they would perform poorly, embarrassingly, and awkwardly in others’ presence.
