Recognize that they’re strong people.
We have this tendency as a society to believe that people with anxiety are weaklings; that they’re so wimpy they can’t handle a little bit of real world adulthood. But that’s not why people suffer from anxiety.
Instead, recognize that people with anxiety are strong to deal with what they have to deal with and still keep themselves on the right track. It takes a great deal of strength to face down a life that torments them.
