Anxiety Symptoms as a Parasite

Every living thing wants to survive and reproduce. So does anxiety. Anxiety can be thought of as a parasite that finds an area of vulnerability and burrows in. Like every parasite, anxiety’s survival comes at the expense of the host. Typically, you'll notice anxiety symptoms in connection with some area of insecurity, perhaps your health, your relationships, your finances, or your work.

Anxiety is your Friend

How is anxiety your friend? If you have an exam, anxiety correctly senses the threat of failure and motivates you to study. In fact, with no anxiety, you might never amount to anything, because you would never be motivated to move forward in life. Anxiety is needed to effectively address problems in life.
