10 Things people don’t realize about you, when you have high Functioning Anxiety
8 When someone gets concerned about them, they worry more
They feel that if their problem is visible to other people and they are talking about it to them, then they get worried that it is actually worse than what it looked like.
9 Comparing success with others of your age
They may not want to compare their success with others, but anxiety makes them scroll down their Facebook timeline which has all the updated information about their friends. Most of the times, it is not the success of others that worries them, but the thought about their own success.
10 Declining invitations despite wanting to go
They may have been waiting for that function for a long time, but if on the D-day anxiety strikes, they tend to cancel all the plans. They think that they might become a burden at that place, so they just stay at home rather than going to that much-awaited event.
Now that you have reached the end of this list, we are hoping that you will now understand anxious people in a much better manner. Having anxiety is not that big of a problem because a little of it is good to perform better, but if anxiety is creating problems in the day-to-day functioning of a person, then he should be given help, whether by talking to him or by taking him to a professional. After all, being worried is not our true nature, happiness is what we truly seek and that is what we should be striving for, not just for us but others as well.
