Long live the worrying thoughts that anxiety creates

Feeling anxious is only creating a bigger fire underneath anxiety filled teens


Anxiety doesn’t care if you are having a good day or are relaxed. It always comes around. Teens are feeling that they have to face anxiety alone but they are not alone. 

“A teenage anxiety problem might be hard to spot. Many teenagers are good at hiding their feelings and thoughts. They might even mask their feelings with aggressive behavior or withdrawal. There are also several different types of anxiety disorders in teenagers, and not every child will have the same symptoms,” according to The Australian Parenting Website. 

Suffering from anxiety kills the perspective on how to live life. Anxiety, a mental health disorder and should be taken seriously, is characterized by feelings of worry and fear that can interfere with someone’s daily activities. 

Sometimes anxiety can cause unwanted thoughts or lack of concentration. Other remarks are sleepless nights because the mind can not sleep without adding salt into the wound of worried thoughts. 

“Stressful life experiences may increase your risk for an anxiety disorder, too. Symptoms may begin immediately or years later. Having a serious medical condition or a substance use disorder can also lead to an anxiety disorder,” according to Kristeen Cherney who wrote for Healthlines.

People with anxiety will always have anxiety, it doesn’t go away. But, there are some implementations that can calm anxiety. 

You can’t turn off your anxious thoughts. They keep running through your head, on endless repeat. But no matter how overwhelming things seem now, you can break free from chronic worrying, learn to calm your anxious mind, and regain your sense of hope,” according to helpguide.org

The thing  is that the mind wants to protect everything that comes around. For example, social anxiety, it gives fear to people that they are going to make a fool out of themselves when  meeting someone new. Don’t think about the bad income of meeting someone new, think about the good outcome. The bad income, the phrase of what if it goes wrong. The good outcome, meeting a new friend, now talking with this friend, and starting to feel confident.
“When a person becomes anxious, stressed, or frightened, the brain sends signals to other parts of the body. The signals communicate that the body should prepare to fight or flee,” according to Jayne Leonard from Medical News Today.

Teens should always think about the outcomes of starting a new conversation with someone. Yes, teens can think about the income about what they are going to say and how that person is going to react. The income, think before you speak. If their classmates or people outside of school don’t like them, it’s not their fault. The outcome is the important part,they were confident enough to make a conversation. Never give up a chance to do something because of anxiety. 

Be bold and grow from it. 

Don’t rely on the past mistakes, rely on what the future holds. Another thing teens with anxiety can use, the five senses: taste, smell, touch, sight, hear. Five things they can see around them. Four things they can touch. Three things they can hear. Two things they can smell. One thing they can taste.
