5 Things Everyone Needs To Understand About Anxiety
It doesn't make you weak.
Anxiety doesn't make you weak and it doesn't devalue you as a person. Just about everyone feels anxiety at some time or another. Don't single out people with anxiety.
Don't target them. Don't call them names. Don't think less of them.
It's not introversion.
More importantly I think it's best to understand that introverts aren't the only people with anxiety problems. Extroverts can be impacted by it as well.
When you have anxiety, you don't always want to go out into the world and do things. Don't slap a label on it. Just respect their decisions.
It's possible to have depression too.
Anxiety and depression tend to walk hand in hand.
