Anxiety is a feeling that I have been carrying around for a long time. I don’t know when or how I was introduced to this feeling. I see a lot of babies and young kids around me who I am sure do not even know what that feeling is.
Is anxiety triggered one fine day? or is it a function of your cognitive development that once you start thinking more, it automatically comes ? or further, is it an insecurity that develops once you realise that there are many things not under your control?
I have noticed by anxiety grow with age. Im sure as a kid my anxiety was limited to my exam marks, the outcome of my parents argument or whether there will be enough kids to play the evening cricket match.
As I grew into a teenager, my anxiety took shape as well. From the acne on my skin, physical structure, future studies and of getting caught while doing something mischievous.
After college, anxiety has taken new turns with the hot topics being future, money, health, parents, existence and all. I am spending more and more time these days observing my anxieties and trying to calm them. God help me ! 🙂
