Here are some worries that cause anxiety or stress. (source) – fear of being around other people – anxiety in specific social situations, – anxiety in your relationships with particular people at home, at school or at work.
When fear is over exaggerated and out of proportion, fear becomes anxiety. When you body/mind encountered danger, you either fight, flight or freeze.
It is a normal part of the human protection system to experience this fight-or-flight response, but only when there is real and present danger. To experience prolonged flight-or-flight creates feelings of anxiety. It is often rooted in a previous experience that triggered fear or in a general anxiety and worry about your situation at home or at work. There can also be anxiety without knowing what is causing it, a general feeling of anxiety known as “free floating” anxiety. (source)
