What would anxiety look like? | Expressing an emotion

Anxiety essay Bookosmia

Anxiety is a feeling of dread and trepidation.

When I think of that word, I visualise a lost, apprehensive and scared girl in a vast isolated desert. It makes me think of being on stage, tongue tied in front of the entire audience.

I always associate the colour grey with it- so dull and miserable. When people are anxious, they are likely to be biting their lips, clattering their teeth and shaking like a leaf. They have butterflies in their stomach, their heart beat is rapid and they tend to break out in cold sweat. Often, they feel restless, panic stricken, agitated and tensed.


People tend to feel anxious before taking a really important test or when they are about to speak on stage. Being too  anxious can take away a really good opportunity and make you regret missing it.


As said by Corrie Ten Boom, “Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it empties today of it’s strengths.”
