Anxiety is a natural internal alarm system in the body that communicates that you are unsafe. The feeling of being unsafe can trigger a natural response to a thought, sensation, situation, experience, environment, interaction or person.
Sometimes we can't pinpoint what is exactly happening and anxiety is just there. The responses and symptoms someone may experience varies for each person but overall, its this unsettling feeling that can make you feel really stuck.
