If you're a worrier, some of these might sound scarily familiar...

TAGS:

1. The catastrophising…

If you’re a worrier, you have a tendancy to catastrophise things in your head. Worst case scenario? It’s bound to happen – there just couldn’t possibly be a positive outcome to whatever drama you’re having. It’s just another thing to worry about.

2. The panicking…

If you’re stressing about something, fear often sweeps over you followed by a spike of adrenalin and your heart hammering. You have you to take deep breaths to calm down. It really isn’t good for you!

3. Worrying about nothing…

If you don’t have anything to worry about, you will undoubtedly find something to torment yourself with.

4. Have I offended someone?

As a worrier, you often panic that people may have misconstrude something you’ve said. Have you offended them? Should you clarify what you meant? You end up going round in circles.

5. Apologising…

You often find yourself saying sorry for things that don’t warrant an apology. It makes you feel better despite it getting on people’s nerves. That’s just another thing for you to worry about!

6. The sleepless nights…

This will be extremely familiar if you’re a worrier. You spend the early hours of the morning stressing about the small stuff (and the big stuff!) when you should be asleep. If by some miracle you do manage to get some sleep, you’ll likely be woken up early by other things to worry about.

7. Criticism…

It’s supposed to be constructive (and it’s meant to help you improve yourself) but you can’t help taking it personally and thinking you’re a failure.

8. What are they thinking?

If you’re a worrier, you’ll spend lots of time concerned about what other people think. The only real way to know is to ask them, but you worry about doing that too!
