Whenever I start talking to a new person or when I am in a crowded area, my heart starts throbbing?
Calm yourself be exercising and meditation. Do not avoid such situations, as avoiding them will reinforce the fear. Expose yourself to such situations with someone by your side. Be casual and engage in chatting with the person while you are in a crowded area. Do not over think as to what the other person might think about you. Be your normal self and make an eye contact while talking to new people
