'Most of us face anxiety in our lives every now and then. It tends to come at certain times, showing up when we need to make a speech, teach a class, present a new idea to the boss, or meet the new in-laws for the first time.
It’s not comfortable, but it usually dissipates within a short time, leaving few if any lasting effects.
There’s another type of anxiety that’s even more concerning, though. It follows us on a daily basis, like little ants constantly crawling up our backs whispering words of fear in our ears.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. Or at least, be very uneasy.'
