Unfinished Self Discovery Research Project
"The APD has the real self in hiding - hiding from an original environment or internal objects that were traumatic, rejecting and abusive. Due to early original pain, the adult APD cannot separate the present from the past, so everyone and everything becomes potentially dangerous and filled with anxiety and fear. As such, the deep core self, reality and everything that can trigger early pain is avoided."
"....many therapists say that if the socially phobic could rein in their anxiety enough to function, they would help make the world a better place."
