Today’s teenagers deal with a lot including school, life, friends and etc, the topic of today’s discussion is social anxiety and it seems to be getting more common in today’s society, I asked a Heavener High School student what her greatest struggle is right now she responded, “I think my greatest struggle would be my social anxiety, I was in a really bad mental  state a few weeks ago but I’ve found a really good group of friends that have definitely pulled me out of that slump and give me a reason to keep going every day. So I do think it’s getting better, slowly but surely.” Finding ways to cope with anxiety is common with teenagers; I asked if she does anything in her free time to keep her anxiety down when her friends aren’t around this student stated, “I like to paint a lot in my free time.”
