It’s quite unusual of me to have blogs with titles such as this one - ‘Anxiety’, and going into the definition, causes and effects of anxiety is neither this post’s objective nor is it within my competence - definitely. Yet as much as I tried to write about some other subject – any other would have done, really – I just couldn’t divert my thoughts from what I was feeling this afternoon, and grew anxious to write about anxiety in general.
We’re all aware of how people may experience states of worry or fear before confronting something challenging or new. ‘Big deal, what’s your point?’ you may be wondering ‘everyone has been there at some point or another, right?’ But anxiety can at times get the better of you and interfere with your ability to function. Again, I’m by far the least competent person to talk to when it comes to such matters and I’m only deliberating about this because anxiety is something which scares me and surprises me each time.
