Some level of anxiety in life is good, healthy and normal. For example, it helps to keep you from walking into a street without first looking both ways (unless you are a distracted walker because you are too busy texting to pay attention to where you are going…but that is another problem).
But there are levels of anxiety that can start to impair our daily lives. Sometimes that anxiety can feel like a giant wall keeping us from going where we want and doing what we desire. If you know someone struggling with high anxiety, telling them to “get over it” is not very helpful and can even be hurtful. If you are wrestling with a wall of anxiety, please seek help.
