But they are there to try to support you, because things go from bad to worse in your mind.

But most of all, anxiety is showing compassion. We never want to hurt someone’s feelings. We never want to do something wrong. More than anything, it’s the lack and the need to simply be accepted and loved. So, sometimes you try too much.
And when you come across friends who are beginning to understand, they help you overcome it. Then you realize that it will be an everyday fight but that you will not do it alone.
