There are countless definitions of anxiety and it is not the goal to list them all and point your finger just to say “I am anxious.” Believe it or not, people are anxious some to a lesser and some to a greater extent but anxiety is an integral part of life.
Anxiety is considered worry, like worry about future events that may or will happen in the future. In addition to worry, concepts such as fear, uneasiness, concern. All of these are an integral parts of human existence, animals feel fear, but rarely can we say that the animal is anxious and biting nails or sweating due to future events. By this I want to draw a line and emphasize that all of these things are normal for people because people have created anxiety.
Anxiety brings many benefits. Some of them are that when a person says they are anxious or have anxiety, people see him or her with different eyes. It is as if responsibility for one’s own behavior is being removed. Instead of looking at anxious people as if they were “possessed” by anxiety, it would be nicer to realize that at the end of the day, we determine and manage our behaviors, and anxiety is a side effect. This is one possible reaction, but let’s not identify with anxiety. She can be our companion as we frequently monitor our reactions and notice anxiety. When we notice that she appeared, we have completed the first task.
1.Anxiety is normal for all people
-do not identify with anxiety, you are not anxiety, you sometimes feel fear and unease and worry, which are normal physiological phenomena
2. Recognize when worry or unease occurs
-you take awareness of these reactions and follow and monitor them
3.Try to understand why they just appear
-this may be a crucial step that contains a gold-worthy answer.
The answer is not “because I’m scared of people,” the answer may be “because I don’t want people to reject me.”
*The answer is not “because I’m embarrassed”
*The answer may be “because I doubt my abilities”
4.When you get answers, you know what to do
-We pay too much attention to worries and anxieties instead of realizing why we worry and fear. But what do we really shy away from?
