    п»ї<title>5 "habits" of people with anxiety</title>
    There are parts of your personality that really aren't, they are attitudes or "habits" that appear and are maintained as a consequence of anxiety and tend to mix with your true personality. This mixture can be dangerous and can even make you seem strange or impolite, making your life more difficult when other people judge you based on those actions, without really getting to know what is inside your head.
    Below I propose an analysis of these habits. I do so because knowing them can help us better manage our anxiety and emotions, bring out the best in us and show our true personality.
    "Fear sharpens the senses, anxiety paralyzes them."
    -Kurt Goldstein
    1.- Apologize for everythingPeople with anxiety have the feeling that they are always bothering others or that on the contrary they have to satisfy others constantly and therefore apologize for everything. They apologize for everything and for nothing, constantly and it seems to be a habit that they cannot control.
    The real discomfort of other people comes from this habit, which like many habits, is unhealthy and annoying. It is uncomfortable not knowing what to answer to a person who apologizes for something unimportant, even for everyday situations that are out of their control.
    2.- Taking everything in a very personal wayThis habit is closely linked to the previous one. When they are told something or something is pointed out to them, they think about it a lot. They can think about it for a whole day and at all hours, expanding it so much that, no matter how small it is, it ends up being intrusive and annoying... when it was just an innocent comment. Nothing beyond that.
    This tends to degenerate into a vicious cycle. They are anxious and nervous about the comment, and dwelling on it only contributes to this anxiety over time. To scare away these thoughts, they may opt for a behavioral embellishment, such as a thank you or an apology. Something, in turn, can make them feel ridiculous and more anxious.
    "Worry does not remove the pain of tomorrow; it removes the strength of today."
    -Corrie ten Boom
    3.- Abandoning places or leaving conversations in the middleMany times anxiety can get the best of people and generates in them a habit of avoidance or flight when they feel a threat, that the situation overcomes them. Another consequence of anxiety is that it causes the person to focus on it and on what causes the anxiety, completely abstracting from other stimuli in their environment, such as a conversation.
    It's not that people don't appreciate the company. It is just that anxiety overcomes them and the best solution they find is to leave the place or think of something else, even if this projects the image that they are rude people.
    4.- Fantasizing and thinking about the worst possible scenarioThis is a habit that causes more anxiety. Although at certain times in our lives or in certain situations we have all thought about the worst possible scenario, people with anxiety have the habit of overestimating the probability of the worst possible scenarios. Being constantly placed in the worst case scenario can lead to physical and psychological consequences, chronic fatigue and when it comes to people it can make relationships very difficult.
    They believe that anticipating the future protects them and prevents anxiety, but it is the other way around, it generates more fear, uncertainty and increases anxiety because they focus only on the bad, they do not enjoy anything and that bad scenario ends up, many times, becoming a reality.
    We can look at situations with caution and evaluate them as much as possible, but we have to be clear that we cannot predict the future or know what is going to happen and that avoiding situations does not protect us from them, it only limits us to enjoy things, people and life.
    "Every morning has two handles, we can take the day by the handle of anxiety or by the handle of faith."
    -Henry Ward Beecher
    5.- Taking a long time to make decisionsPeople with anxiety tend to analyze situations down to the smallest detail, which makes it almost impossible for them to make a decision. This even if it is a simple decision and where there are no good or bad decisions, such as what to wear that day or what to eat. This "habit" can not only affect these people, it can affect them in their jobs, with their partner or with their children.
    Making decisions can generate anxiety to anyone, we are all afraid of being wrong, but, the habit of over-analyzing things to the smallest detail and avoiding making decisions tends to generate more anxiety than deciding, maybe making a mistake and rectifying it.
    We cannot escape or delegate many of the decisions we face. Deciding is thus a daily act whose outcome will be mediated by different variables. Some of them we will not control, such as luck, but there will be others that we will, such as attitude, and it is on them that we have to focus our work.
    Bad habits generate and feed anxietyWhat I have tried to show with this article is that sometimes the bad habits of anxious people can generate more anxiety. So, just as knowing the situations is the first step to avoid them, it can also be useful to talk openly about this anxiety when it comes to us, so that others can help us.
    Thus, another important element before these situations and habits is that it is not necessary to face them alone. People with anxiety, like many other people, believe that no one can help them with their problems or they are embarrassed to ask for help. Nothing could be further from the truth, by sharing how we feel we will prevent others from making wrong assumptions about what is happening to us and we will make it easier for them to be sympathetic.
