How To Stop Your Mind From Going Blank In Social Situations

The biggest reason you go blank is because you are giving yourself pressure and that too analyzing paralyzing fear. When a person gives himself pressure – he will 100% go blank.

I had the same problem and these were the strategies I implemented to help me relax in social situations:

Whenever I go to social situations, I don’t go to impress anyone. Neither do I go to express anything. I just go there to observe. Just observe. More like take notes and learn.
When I am in the social situation – I go to have a good time. To be myself. If someone can accept me fine. If someone cannot accept me – well I keep away from them. And if in case, I feel I am totally out of place – I leave and go else where. Simple right?
If you go blank in social situations – remember – it is like learning how to develop a new skill like driving a car. When you drive a car for the first time – you would be absolutely nervous, confused and petrified the least (I was!). Today, after nearly 16 years of doing so – now I drive unconsciously as if I am in a state of trance. In fact – I don’t even remember doing anything! Do the same where this skill is concerned.
Remember this – there are people who are dying of cancer. There are individuals who have lost their family members. They are people who lost billions of dollars in a bad year. If you compare your problem to these – you will realize how insignificant it truly is. There are bigger and more grander things in life where you need to focus your attention on and worry about. This is not as big as you make it out to be.
Finally, Ask yourself what is the worst that can happen to you? Will you be shot? Will you be jailed for life? Will you be named and shamed globally? You will then realize – it is not such a big deal.
