Anxiety is an emotion characterised by feelings of fear and tension, worried thoughts and physical changes, like increased blood pressure, sweating and fatigue.
Anxiety is an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by feelings of dread. The true nature of anxiety is fear, which is one of the most common natural emotions of living beings.
It is important not to be alone with anxiety. Asking for help is a huge advantage.
No matter what anyone is faced with, there are people with abilities and experience who can help. There is always a way forward. It is not a sign of weakness to ask for help, it is a step towards strength.
