I am not good enough. I will never be good enough. Nobody here likes me. I’m wasting everybody’s time. I’m not good at anything. Why am I here. What if they hate it. I’m letting them down. I’m going to fail. Bad friend. Bad sister. Bad brother. Bad Girlfriend. Bad Boyfriend. Bad child. Not good enough.
Never going to be good enough.

This is the face of anxiety.
Busy and in control. High-achieving and perfectionistic. Driven by details and order in a desperate attempt to calm racing thoughts, worry, and the fear that invade every ounce of the mind and the body. An over-thinker with a tendency to dwell, and stew on everything. Thoughts that turn into worries and worries, in turn, that consume the thoughts. It can’t be switched off, it can’t be tuned out. It is always there, waiting until it can strike the most vulnerable

But this isolated turmoil is often hidden by smiles and laughs, success and achievements, and a decent dose of extroversion. Silent anxiety attacks hidden by smiles. Looking for any way to channel the never ending energy and the never ending worries. This nervous energy is what keeps people moving forward. It’s always there pressing them to think they aren’t good enough, to do more, to achieve more, succeed more. Be better. All the while it seems perfectly calm.

A man finds it difficult to walk down the street. He might run into a person he knows and be forced to say hello to them. He’s not sure he can do that. His voice will catch, his “hello” will sound weak, and the other person will know he’s frightened. More than anything else, he doesn’t want to let anyone know that he’s afraid. He keeps his eyes safely away from everyone’s gaze and prays he can make it home without having to talk to anyone.

A woman hates to stand in line in the grocery store because she’s afraid that people are watching her. She is paranoid that people might be staring at her from the big mirrors on the inside front of the ceiling. Yet she can’t run from it. She has to talk to the person who’s checking out the groceries. She tries to smile, but her voice comes out weak. She is sure she’s making a fool of herself. Her self-consciousness and her anxiety rise through the roof.

Over five hundred million people in the world today have been diagnosed with some form of social anxiety. That’s 7.3% of the world’s population. But this is just the people who have been able to seek help. It follows people everywhere, to work, to meetings, and even shopping. They can’t relax or “take it easy” In fact, they can never relax when other people are around. It always feels like others are evaluating, being critical, or judging them in some way. It is sometimes impossible to let go, relax, and focus on anything else.
This is the face of anxiety.
All day, every day, life can be chaos. Fear. Apprehension. Avoidance. Pain. Anxiety about what you said. Fear that you have said is something wrong. Worry about others’ disapproval. Afraid of rejection, of not fitting in. Anxious to enter a conversation, afraid you’ll have nothing to talk about. Hiding what’s wrong deep inside, putting up a defensive wall to protect your “secret”. There is a constant voice in the back of your mind telling you that everything’s not okay. When in reality it is.

Anxiety is a liar, although it feels incredibly real. Listening to it will not make it go away. You need to resist it. Fight it. Don’t let it win. So let it speak. Hear out all the worries and irrational concerns. The simple act of listening to it will show you that you are not it. Let it rant and rave and panic and cry. Let it tell you everything it’s thinking. And then you choose.The first moment is the hardest, and the hardest things are the most truthful. So let your anxiety speak. When all its worries are on the table, you decide how you play the cards. Step out to make a change. Step out to make a new face of society.
