Everyone gets a little anxious from time to time, it’s a completely normal human emotion in many life situations. However for those who suffer from anxiety disorders, feelings of fear and distress occur with a debilitating frequency that can seriously hamper a person’s quality of life.

Types of anxiety disorders range from social phobia and extreme self-consciousness, to panic attacks, OCD and more specific phobias of things like heights and bugs. Episodes come and go often at random; one day you could feel on top of the world while the next you are unable to leave the house or answer a phone call. Writing and deleting messages over and again to make sure you get just the right tone and select the appropriate emoji.

While anxiety is certainly no laughing matter, sometimes the best medicine IS laughter. Bored Panda has compiled a list of posts that anxiety sufferers can totally relate to, check them out below and have a chuckle at your own neurosis. If nothing else, they will help you realize that anxiety is way more common than you think, and you’re certainly not alone!

True. And even with people that I know I am not good with small talks . And let's add that English is not even my first language and sometimes my accent gets out and is terrible.

What if they brought this decision because of you? Oh, the guilt of spoiling the fun and happiness... What if they're actually going to meet, but just wanna leave you out? Oh, the feeling of being left out. What if something terrible happened, and you're here suspecting they're lying, while really someone got seriously hurt? Oh, thw guilt again... What it..... *enda in fade out*

Or when you meet someone from a country who does the cheek kiss. Oh God, is it one kiss or two?? Do I actually kiss their cheek or just make a kiss noise beside their cheek?? What if our heads go in the same direction?? Oh God!
