  1. This is not what anxiety is like. Anxiety isn’t something that’s against you and you can tell it’s there. Sometimes you can’t just choose whether or not to listen to it.

  2. My anxiety went through the roof watching this cuz I thought there was gonna be some creepy guy or whatever since she’s home alone

  3. That’s not anxiety. That’s insecurity. Getting over anxiety is really not as simple as just not listening to that voice. That voice is loud and intrusive and people with anxiety have very difficult times turning down the volume just a little bit. Yes, anxiety is partly not wanting to go out with your friends because of what they thing about you, but it’s also overthinking like, wouldn’t they have more fun without me? Or, when you’re actually there you don’t talk or do anything because you’re scared they’re going to judge you or feel annoyed.

    Please, stop mistaking anxiety for insecurity because when people display stuff like this, they call people with anxiety dramatic or attention seeking because media cannot get it right

  4. I enjoyed the thought behind this, however they missed a MAJOR key point in anxiety. It dosent ever go away. No matter what you try to say or do. In fact, instead of making a bad thought go away, I just try to think heavily on something else to replace it. People really need to understand how bad social anxiety is and how it plays in your every day life. It isn't some "thing" you can overcome and leave behind by closing the door.

  5. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, GAD, is an anxiety disorder characterized by chronic anxiety, exaggerated worry and tension, even when there is little or nothing to provoke it.

    This for everyone in the comments section is the definition ok… Now many of you are posting how this is just a video about an insecure girl (while I think this is a terrible video that doesn't portray anxiety very well).

    There is no fucking one thing that makes up your anxieties meaning this girl feeling insecure is a form of anxiety, it is a valid feeling and thing to be anxious about. People need to stop coming onto the internet and deciding what people can and cannot be anxious about it's just wrong.

    Now if you actually wanted to give this creator constructive criticism that they could perhaps take on board for their next project then how about talk less about what they are anxious about and more about how anxiety isn't something you just overcome or put away once you "become more confident" most people have to live with it.

    Or maybe talk about how anxiety tends to be a sensory overload with things you are anxious about not just a couple of specific things. Hell even talk about medication and side effects (talking about the cost of medication would be a great one) and also panic attacks.

    Thank you if you made it through this and didn't get a rage boner 🙂

  6. em que mundo isso é anorexia? nao vi ela parando de comer de propósito so pra emagrecer, passar fome de propósito e sentir "prazer" nisso achando que é a coisa certa ou fazendo exercícios pra compensar oq comeu. esse tipo de vídeo é horrível pq generaliza tanta coisa 🙁

  8. They always say you gotta get out of this "funk," but we can just leave cause wherever we go its always there.

  9. 18/02/2022 here again i thing i feel sick with my life
    Toxic family
    Toxic friend
    Toxic coworker
    Toxic people
    Toxic life
    This thug life for me i just 19
    Pless i stresss

  10. Idk if I have anxiety or not, can one of y’all help me. So i have specific things I have to do and idk why. If I don’t I feel horrible for the rest of the day, or I’ll feel like someone I love will die or get hurt and I worry for the rest of the day, for example when I go to public restrooms with more than three stalls, I always have to go the second stall. Please help me.

  11. As a person with anxiety, this is not at all what it’s like. Never compare this to anxiety. This is insecurity and small signs of depression. It should not be mixed up

  12. Them : you can tell me, how abt ur feeling. I'm here with you.
    My mind : nope, u'r lie, I know everything, u just curious abt my self.
    Not care!!!!!

  13. My anxiety makes me feel I'm the ugliest person in the world and makes me feel that selflessness:) and no point to live my life

  14. coming from a person who has anxiety, you kinda missed the point, and even if this was actually anxiety its definitely not that easy to get rid of it like that.

  15. I hope everyone watching this can get through the difficulties of fighting anxiety. As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression it’s hard escaping but I know that we can all fight through it.

  16. The problem is that anxiety isn’t always a different voice. You can’t distinguish it from your own. You can’t tell the difference between encouraging yourself and being overconfident, and knowing that maybe you’re being overconfident discourages you from encouraging yourself.

  17. Why is nobody talking about how she has all the curtains open and not being afraid that someone is watching her?
