Based on what I've gone through, periods of anxiety will always pass. Anxiety itself can be limited to a specific time period based on specific circumstances, or it can be chronic, in which case it wouldn't go away. My anxiety appears to be chronic, and it comes and goes, but I take solace in the fact that anxiety spells always go away.
I don't think it really entirely go away, you learn coping skills to make it more manageable, and you can always reach for support from more experienced people.
Anxiety is just a thought of Needless worries! We do think each and every day. And we can't control our thoughts, just like the CARS on roads. But yes, we Choose which thoughts to rely on! It's simple. Every one has some sort of doubtful thoughts. But when we focus on Good thoughts only and never Complete the Cycle of negative thoughts -- just like I won't.. instead Yes I will succeed in exams, this makes our confidence to get boost!
Being anxious is a feeling that might appear sometimes, but it is always manageable, so you shouldn't feel afraid.
I think that anxiety levels can go down if you really try but i don't think anxiety goes away completely. Anxiety can be good if you have the healthy amount of it. The right amount can help keep you safe if you channel it right.
It does. Anxiety does go away, maybe not entirely sometimes but it surely gets better, with time and practice.
For me, anxiety never goes away but it can lessen to the point where it may seem as it doesn't exist. There are ways for an individual to feel less anxious but those differ from person to person.
It really depends whether its clinical or something that we have made up! In case its something of our own making then atleast it can be kept under check! The best way to fight anxiety is firstly, to think positive and second find ways to minimise its side effects! For me it was like increased heart beat unstable mind...I tried meditation and jogging! It worked for me...discover yourself my friend !! :)
I've had slight anxiety my whole life and I don't think it goes away. But it doesn't have to go away. It's a part of you and who you are. Learn to live with it and not try to get rid of it.
Nope. It doesn't. Being human, you're not always happier, not always sad. Like any other emotion, it occurs to us and go away, and comes again, and cycle goes the same. It's only a matter of how we deal with it, :)
I don't think it really "goes away" But with the right help it can fade away to almost nothing.. But I don't think it can fade completely..
Yes it does through patience and bravely surviving it, so if you are patient and brave you can actually get through it
Anxiety is nice alarm in our bodies to give us a sign of something we have to act against or toward..it won't disappear but its totally manageable..there s a lot of coaches who can teach how to do anxiety management..
when you get to lose your inhibitions and fear it might go away for good, once you feel like you really are being yourself and having no regrets and guilt.
I have learned to deal with my anxiety to the point where it is almost none existant. I have worked hard On myself. When anxiety rears its ugly head, I have the taught myself the skills to be able to combat it. If I can do it, anyone can.
Yes, an anxiety attack eventually goes away and lasts for a few minutes and we eventually calm down
no, it will always find a way to creep back in but you just gotta push it back out again and again
Mine has not i try to cope with my anxiety to the best of my ability. Even if its just sitting in silence for a few minute
You can overcome the constant feeling of anxiety! Yes you can :) Those of us who are prone to anxiety have a variety of triggers that cause us to feel anxious. Those triggers may never go away but that's alright its part of who you are so accepting and integrating those triggers into your healing process is a great start. Knowing we don't have to anticipate anxiety is a wonderful thing that is why I used Mindfulness techniques to help me live in the present, accept my emotions as valid, and take one moment at a time. I choose a healthy diet and meet regularly with my health professionals so that I can stay ahead of my anxiety issues. I found photography helps when I feel my anxiety starting to grow inside me. A hobby is a great way to lessen those feelings. It takes work but mindfulness techniques are one way to tackle that anxiety. You don't need luck. You are awesome! Thanks for reaching out for help!
I don't think that anxiety ever truly goes away but I do think as you get older you find ways to overcome it and learn to live with it, but thats just me I don't know if it ever does just go away
I certainly hope so! I wish that for everyone who suffers from it. I think it is possible but it takes a lot of work and time and different things will work for different people. I think it is important to learn how to manage your anxiety, understand it, know it and in some way embrace it. I am not completely rid of my anxiety but I think that now that I have done the research and self-reflection and therapy, I understand it a lot better and is therefore reduced.
Yes anxiety does eventually go away you have to keep working on it. Try listening to music or you could try yoga.
Not really, it will always be there, but you have the choice to acknowledge it or not. It can feel that way, which is good, but it will not entirely go away...at least not in my experience.
Anxiety itself can be triggered by so many different events. What you'll find is as time goes on, the events that trigger your anxiety might change.
Yes you can learn to be just concerned instead of afraid and you can have a happy life without any fears.
No. Anxiety will never leave you as a person. I don't think anxiety can be cured. Because it's not a disease, or a virus. But I think it can be dealt with through love, compassion, and understanding.
Truly it never does, you eventually just get so busy you just don't care anymore. Anxiety sucks, just do things with your life that you are confident with. It will distract you.
Anxiety will definitely go. Anxiety is created based on your thoughts. If you focus to do good and to see the positive outcome, it will help you to eliminate anxious feelings.
I would say no. Anxiety is supposed to help us get things done and to protect ourselves, it's just that sometimes anxiety comes at unhealthy levels.
You can grow out of it. You can change as a person. But it honestly depends on the circumstances.
