For those who suffer from anxiety, it is not a laughing matter. It's crippling. Sometimes, we have to plan our days around being almost paralyzed from how severe anxiety can affect us. For obvious reasons, anxiety is constantly spoken about under the shadow of negativity.
The thing is, people who suffer from anxiety don't have blaring symptoms that are noticeable to everyone. Some people believe others suffering from anxiety are simply poor at dealing with intense or stressful situations. It's something people deal with every minute every day in almost all situations you'll come across. Obviously, some people handle their anxiety better than others.
This doesn't make anyone stronger or weaker – everyone faces their own battles. I've always felt if there is something overwhelmingly negative in my life, whether it's how I feel about myself or just an ongoing situation I'm dealing with. Shining a positive light on all of these things would always help make things a little more bearable.
