What is a Psychophysiological Malfunction? Some label their problem an emotional issue, others a spiritual disorder. Those terms are okay, but they do not paint the whole picture.

Social Anxiety Disorder
Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is a psychophysiological malfunction (PPM) that, like other personality disorders, can lay dormant for years before materializing. Onset most likely occurs during adolescence, and SAD lingers in the system for years or decades before fully asserting itself.
Personal recovery is an individual process. Just as there is no one right way to do or experience recovery, so also what helps us at one time in our life may not help us at another. One-size-fits-all approaches are inadequate to address the dynamic complexity of the individual personality. Recovery programs must be fluid, integrating multiple traditional and non-traditional approaches developed through client trust, cultural assimilation, and therapeutic innovation.
Neural restructuring is the deliberate scientific modification of our brain’s neural pathways. Science confirms our neural pathways are continually realigning.

In contemporary philosophy, healthy philautia is the custodian of positive self-qualities (self –esteem, -compassion, -love, -regard, -respect, -value, -worth, and other wholesome intrinsic commodities).

If you have social anxiety disorder or some form of depression, or it’s hard to motivate yourself, and you lack self-confidence or self-esteem―it’s not your fault. Research shows that the onset of most mental illness happens to adolescents who have experienced detachment, exploitation, and or neglect, whether the cause be hereditary, environmental, or the result of some traumatic event. Technically, anything that interferes with a child’s social development is detrimental to adult emotional health. You were infected during adolescence and the symptoms lay dormant until they manifested when you became an adult. In any case, it’s not your fault, so don’t beat yourself up about it. Just fix it.
