When this anxiety symptom is caused by anxiety and stress, the best way toeliminate it is to recognize it is being caused by an active stress response and/or a body that’s overly stressed. Then, calm yourself down and reduce your body’s stress. As your body calms down, this feeling should subside. Here is how the anxiety manipulates you:
- Self – Doubt : Anxiety makes us question ourselves. Once self-doubt creeps in, anxiety makes it grow and take over how we view ourselves.
- Fear : A big part of anxiety is fear. Anxiety takes what is dear to you and makes you afraid of losing it.
- Worries, what-ifs, and worst-case scenarios : These are closely related to fears. It puts thoughts of the worst-case scenarios on our minds, effectively trapping us.
- Need for Control : We don’t want our fears to manifest. We hate being plagued by constant self-doubt. And we’re weary of our worries. To get rid of them, we focus on them, trying very hard to control them.
