Anxiety Quotes

Positive Depression And Anxiety Attack Quotes For You: Anxiety is an emotion that is characterized by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil and includes feelings of dread over anticipated events. Anxiety is different from fear in that fear is defined as the emotional response to a real threat, whereas anxiety is the anticipation of a future threat.

Common symptoms of anxiety include feeling nervous, restless, or tense, having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom, sweating, trembling, and increased blood pressure. Everyone feels anxious at some point in their life, but for some people, it can be an ongoing problem. A little bit of anxiety can be helpful.

For example, feeling anxious before an exam might make you more alert and improve your performance. But too much anxiety could make you tired and unable to concentrate. Anxiety disorders are the most common of all mental illnesses, and they are also the most treatable. Often, the only way to control anxiety is through professional treatment.

Unfortunately, only about one-quarter of the victims ever seek treatment. We have compiled the best anxiety quotes that will help people living with anxiety feel calmer on tough days. People who are depressed and feeling social anxiety will also find these quotes quite helpful.


If you are depressed and anxious, the main thing I want to tell you is: your pain makes sense. It has meaning. You’re not crazy. You’re not broken. You are a human being with unmet needs. There’s scientific evidence for why people feel this way. There’s a mix of causes – biological, psychological, and social. None is your fault and all can be dealt with, with love and support. No matter how bad things are right now, no matter how stuck you feel, no matter how many days you’ve spent crying and wishing things were different, no matter how hopeless and depressed you feel, I promise you that you won’t feel this way forever. Keep going.

Just because a person is smiling today doesn’t mean they weren’t crying yesterday. Just because they made it to work doesn’t mean they didn’t have a panic attack that morning. Just because they say they’re fine doesn’t mean they are. It’s scary how easily mental illness is masked.

Depression & Anxiety Quotes To Keep You Calm When Feeling Low

Killing oneself is, anyway, a misnomer. We don’t kill ourselves. We are simply defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive.

This is quite wrong.
