Sad Quotes About Anxiety

Anxiety or just “anxiety disorder” are words that are used way too much these days. There is a lot of misunderstanding about anxiety. To make it worse, there is no quick fix for anxiety, and it can take years to learn how to live with it. Anxiety is a cruel disease. It can make you feel distanced from the world, and it’s very easy to get swept into a tail-spin of panic.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point in their lives. It is usually a feeling or profound concern over an upcoming event, taking a test, or making that big speech in front of a lot of your peers. Anxiety is not limited to these situations. Some people experience anxiety any time of the day, usually before they go to bed, and wake up sweating in the middle of the night with their hearts racing like crazy.

If you have anxiety, you learn to cope. If you have a lot of anxiety, it’s hard to cope. To help you with this below is a collection of sad quotes about anxiety and how to possibly live with it.
