Is It Better To Tell People About Having Anxiety?I have anxiety. It gets pretty bad, sometimes to the point where I talk myself out of even going out of the house. I get anxious about the weirdest things for example, if people will like me, if there will be a toilet there.. I have to have a strategy to get out of the situation if i no longer want to be there. I get so nervous about seeing people, it will eat at my insides for days if i have a social meeting planned. It's not pleasant but it's who I am. The only people who know this are my mum, dad and bestfriend. My bestfriend only knows because she has it too so I told her after she'd told me. I haven't even told my sister because i'm afraid of her judgement. I've been wondering, is it better to tell people about having anxiety? does it help ease the anxiousness when meeting people because they know the psychological effort you've been through? I don't know. Feel free to tell me your opinions.
I hate being so nervous all the time but i've come to accept that it's who I am and my aim is to try and get over it and start living!
