With evidenced based therapies, we find the root of the problem together to implement solutions. We all face crises, transitions, or disorders at some time.

Well that could possibly be a good thing if they are kind and supportive you could ask them for help

Many people are struggling with anxiety. Some people are more willing to admit it than others, but everyone is anxious from time to time. The best thing that you can do if you are stuggling with anxiety is to figure out the source and work towards relieving the stressors.

If people know you are struggling with anxiety, the best thing you can do is explain it to them in a way they can understand. Having someone listen is the best medicine.

Then it's okay. Maybe you don't want them to know, do not want to appear 'weak', do not want to demonstrate what you are going through and to crown it all, it is scary. But you are perfect as you are. I understand that and despite this issue, be confident. You are unique in your own way. So it's okay, be yourself. There are many types of people in this world and if some of them do not accept you, then let them go. Block all negativities. You are you. Be yourself. Love yourself. Cherish yourself. Yes, I know it is hard but do it. Fight it. You are amazing and you are a beautiful person! Never forget that. Keep telling yourself that!

It is better if people know that we are struggling with anxiety, so they can be more considered and comprehensive with us, and so we don't have any trouble being oursevels around them, since anxiety is nothing to be ashamed about but something we have to take care of. If we let other people know we have anxiety, they can even help us and we could find other people who are struggling with it too, this way we can learn more about others and about ourselves, and we can help other people who might have been struggling the same way we are.
