Sometimes, our brains make things seem scary, when they're actually not. It can be because of a social situation, past experiences, something big coming up, etc.
It could mean that you are under a lot of stress or you could have a panic disorder. If it is very overwhelming and hard to handle, if I was in your shoes, I would see a doctor or medical health professional.
You might have a disorder if it impacts your life too much, or you could just have a lot going on in your life right now.
Well everyone is different. Nobody is the same. You could be having frequent panic attacks but you should seek the advice of a counselor, therapist or physician who can help you.
Panic is a sign of sudden fear caused due to unexpected events. If you are panic a lot it means there is low confidence and you tend to get nervous a lot.
For me it's the feeling of being completely overwhelmed or without any semblance of control; It's what I do in order to realise I need to break the issue/problem/ whatever it may be down into smaller manageable parts.
Panic is normal! Everyone panics every once in a while. This usually because if stress. When you panic all the time, however it's not so good. I would talk to your doctor about if it happens very often.
Panic can mean many things. It can indicate a learned emotional response to a certain event, or it can even be a manifestation of underly stress, anxiety, or anger problems. A licensed therapist is essential in identifying the underlying cause of panic.
It could mean that you have anxiety or you are just to afraid to fail. You should relax. It's okay to fail.
It is a possibility that you have social anxiety or anxiety which can cause panic attacks in people.
