The internal experience is vastly different than the external experience. People may see you one way, but yet internally you feel anything but. 😞
High functioning anxiety is another way to describe an anxious experience. Maybe you don’t meet full criteria for an anxiety disorder, but the suffering endured warrants support.
You might not know of any other way of functioning, as this has been the norm. 😣 Bringing awareness to these tendencies are key.
It can also help to explore the root. 🤔 What is the high functioning anxiety protecting? Fear of failure? Fear in general? Fear of not being enough? Fear of not being worthy?
The over-extending, pushing, doing, creating, and achieving (although can be really helpful at times) is often a way to keep yourself safe and protected. 😞
