Take it from one anxious person to another: Dealing with anxiety can be a total pain. From being in a constant state of stress to not being able to fall asleep because of all of the thoughts racing around, it's definitely not as "quirky" or "cute" as the movies make it out to be. This video pretty much says it all:

I mean, I can't even count the amount of times that my paranoia has decided to peak its head during the most inconvenient situations ever. If you've ever triple checked your car door or spent a full twenty four hours freaking out over that one time you embarrassed yourself in public, pull up a seat.


I've got to say that I've been known to overthink things like it's my profession. If you add being an introvert into the mix, things can get pretty...interesting; being an extroverted introvert definitely doesn't make things any better. Don't get me wrong; I can schmooze with the best of them (to the point where people think I never shut up) and will burst into song and dance right in the middle of the street regardless of if we're besties or total strangers. But it doesn't mean that I'm not silently freaking out over how crazy you probably think I am.

I can't be the only one who does all seven of the things mentioned in Buzzfeed's video, right?
