People experience anxiety in different ways. Your idea of how anxiety appears might not always align with how it presents itself. You may not notice traces of anxiety in someone who grapples with it internally and in private. To end the misconception and stigma, we made this video to raise awareness.
It is important to remember to always be kind, as you may never fully realize what others are struggling with when they are alone. If you are dealing with anxiety, know that you are not alone in facing these challenges.
