Feeling anxious for certain kinds of thing in our life or known as anxiety is considered as a psychological stuff. Some might be consider as normal, which means all people are definitely ever experiencing it along our life, and under a circumstance that is fair and reasonable, such as being worried of something dangerous, or any life events that are related to life events, changes and possible future experiences, like a test and such kinds. In short, everybody has it, and everybody experiences it in some times of his or her life parts. Yet, anxiety could be excessively much or beyond normal if, it occurs in a level that I said as “too much”. Further, we will discuss deeper on how to distinguish between the normal and not normal anxiety of a person.
A normal level of anxiety works only on certain situations that are very common to feel anxious, worried, or even fear. Like for instance, anxious of getting a job promotion, presentation, or even preparing or welcoming a wedding day. the anxiety feeling due to those conditions is considered as normal and natural, as all humans are created with emotion and feeling. Besides, a normal anxiety manages to give us quite positive effects, such as; the anxiety gives you more encouragements to do something more and better. Some other sides, it can also help you to be more focused in achieving something. Above all, we must acknowledge the important highlight of a normal anxiety that it will stop right away after the tense situation passed by.
In opposite manner, as you can guess, the abnormal anxiety could be said as the opposite of all definitions of a normal anxiety. As I said in the very first lines, that the abnormal means too much, or works beyond the normal line. An anxiety is considered as abnormal, if it harms you more than it benefits you. As for instance, the abnormal anxiety is when you keep on suffering with it all the time, even if there is no wrong with the situations. The anxiety like that grows stronger in time, and can cause you lose some valuable parts of your life, like suffering sleep disorder, lack of focus, or in worse scenario, it can lead you to see everything in very negative ways.
Some cases of anxiety can be categorized as light, medium, and severe. In severe case indeed, you can have quite a panic attack all the time. For this case, seeking a doctor or psychiatrist is so necessary. Besides, everybody’s support will also help the sufferer to recover or at least, for the first step, reducing his or her anxiety level gradually.
