Personally I think anxiety is much more commonly experienced than a lot of people realize. That said, you are absolutely not alone in this. As with many things people experience, I think there is also a very side spectrum of anxiety, from mild to severe. And this spectrum, in my opinion, can be experienced by the same person in several ways during their life. If you would like support in this, please know that there are many options available to you, as well.

Anxiety is common in a lot of children and adults. We worry or stress over things and we just get so worked up and stress even more.
Anxiety is very common among all people of different ages and genders. Most if not all people have experienced some form of anxiety in their lives, for instance when speaking in public or when going through a rough time, such as financial difficulty. Experiencing some anxiety can be good for you, as it is a way for our bodies to warn us to modulate or cease of a behaviour that is dangerous or counter productive, and it activates our to or focus on a task, thereby heightening cognitive acuity. Other times though, anxiety can be a bad thing. Some people suffer from extreme anxiety which can come in different forms, such as panic attacks, phobia, and social anxiety. (If you feel that your anxiety surpasses the level of "normal" everyday anxiety, you should seek medical advice from a doctor). It is important to remember that anxiety normal, and that everyone suffers from it. You are not alone if you are experiencing anxiety. It is good to talk to people about the things that make you anxious and ask for advice from friends about how they manage their anxiety if they experience the same thing.

Anxiety is so common. Pretty much everyone experiences anxiety at some point. I have had generalized anxiety for as long as I can remember.

You are not alone. While no one shares your exact anxiety, many people face the challenge of dealing with their own personal anxiety.

I found that anxiety (to different extents) is more common than people believe it is. When I was first diagnosed after experiencing anxiety attacks and a difference in behavior after a traumatic experience, I thought I was the only person I knew who had anxiety. Later on, though, as I started feeling more confident about being "out" about having anxiety, I discovered a lot of people have anxiety and manage to hide it as well as I do.
you are not alone plenty of people go through this at one point in their lives and it could be because something specific happened and when you see something ect. it might trigger you or other people
No, you are never alone. Many people, roughly 1 out of 3, deal with some kind of anxiety. So, anxiety is pretty common
Anxiety is (sadly) extremely common. There are many different forums and resources online where you can chat with other people who have problems with anxiety. Google is your friend. Good luck!
Anxiety is common, and perhaps becoming more-so. In a high-energy, high-production society like ours, social anxiety and work-related stress are definitely on the rise. Chances are if you don't know anybody else directly who suffers from anxiety, at least a few people you know do. Not only are you definitely not alone, but anxiety as both a physical and mental health issue is much less "taboo" than it once was, and there are plenty of professionals available in many fields who can help you find ways to cope. Good places to start, if you're looking for somebody professional to talk to, are just asking your friends or family if they know of a good therapist, or - especially if your family, like mine, is a little skeptical still - just talk to your doctor. Chances are they can suggest somebody, or at least point you to some great resources or organizations.
Anxiety is a very common thing, you are not alone! You can always talk to someone on 7 Cups of Tea :)
Anxiety disorders is the most common psychiatric disorder on the planet. You can never be alone even with an anxiety disorder because you are still a human being with feelings, the problem is that sometimes our brains makes some errors and we need to fix them in order to function correctly.
