In brief: It depends

. . .On if we are talking a nervous, shy kid or a full fledged social phobia.
If this person gets panic attacks, or avoids social situations at all costs, a psychologist may be in order for cognitive behavorial therapy. If not so severe as that, i agree with the above poster.

In brief: Society anxiety

If their is a family member or a childhood friend allow them to help you meet others, particularly positive people.
There are others there that may feel the same as you. But also remember, that you are never alone, physically or spiritually.
