“There’s nothing wrong with you…not even the darkest corner of that beautiful soul.“ – Vicki Pettersson
Stress and anxiety have become silent killers of today’s society. People got used to living an up-tempo, stressful life without even knowing it.
Still, some people believe that every cloud has a silver lining and that is what gets them going. Like all traits of personality, anxiety is also written in the stars.
You love to take responsibility for everything, to be in charge. But there are days when you just don’t have the energy to keep up with everything.
That is what makes you stressed out and anxious.
Sometimes, you have to let go because life will go on with or without you. As soon as you realize that, you will be fine.
Your anxiety is triggered by being late.
You are frustrated and stressed out when you miss your deadlines or when you are late for a cup of coffee with your friends.
You have the need to make everyone think you are the best (because you are). So, being the second one in the list is not an option for you; hence, it makes you anxious.
All people fail from time to time which makes them grow even stronger. Don’t stress out over failure, because nobody is perfect.
You are famous for making a fuss out of nothing. Every time something insignificant happens, you make a mountain out of a molehill.
In this way, you are the one to blame for your anxiety. Stop overreacting and pull yourself together, because there isn’t anything you can’t solve. Stop making yourself feel anxious.
You are very intelligent, so stupid mistakes people do make you want to scream, “How can you people be so ignorant!!??” But you succeed in restraining yourself and that is making you anxious also.
As you are the most emotional sign of them all, a lot of things can get to you and hurt you. So, that pain transforms into anger which you so elegantly repress. That anger will eat you alive and it is the reason why you are feeling anxious.
Also, due to your remarkable intelligence, you can sense when someone is bad-mouthing you or staring at you with contempt which are additional things that cause you stress.
You need people to be honest with you and no matter how bad it hurts, you don’t keep your emotions bottled up.
You are used to being in control and in the spotlight—meaning, you are a leader and a good one.
So, when things get out of hand, you panic. You can’t accept the idea of someone else taking your leadership place.
If you want a more peaceful life, clear from stress and anxiety, let someone else steer the wheel; sit back and relax.
Virgos are perfectionists and they over-analyze every single thing they do.
The thing that is causing you stress is overthinking your problems. You make yourself go crazy over what is probably just a minor problem. This way, you are making your anxiety jump out of the frying pan into the fire.
Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow and have faith things will work out for you.
The one thing that hurts, hence stresses you out the most, is injustice. You want things to be fair and if they are not, anxiety comes knocking at your door.
Not only do you hate being treated unfairly, you also can’t stand watching someone else being treated the same way.
Also, you will never decide on something on the spur of the moment. Instead, you will weigh what to do like a true Libra, before coming to a decision. That decision-making process is responsible for causing you to stress out.
You value your privacy above anything else. Although you sometimes come across as if nothing can touch you (using sarcasm as a defence mechanism), you are actually very sensitive.
Any invasion of your privacy makes you nervous and anxious. Therefore, you want your peace and quiet surrounded only by your thoughts.
You despise thinking inside the box. You despise anything conventional. You are a free-spirited person and you hate being held captive by conventional rules of society.
You want to be able to decide how to act, eat or dress on your own—without instructions.
Your anxiety is triggered when you are forced to act by the book and because of that, avoiding your anxiety in today’s world is not an easy task.
As you are very hardworking and persistent in accomplishing your goals, your source of anxiety doesn’t come as a surprise—you are the source of your anxiety.
You keep forcing yourself to fulfill all the tasks you’ve decided you have to carry out. So, if and when you fail, you feel that stress is getting the best of you.
You won’t stop at any cost and that is what is making you anxious.
You are a little bit stubborn from time to time.
You want things to go your way and by your rules. So, when the exact opposite happens, you flip out. You have the feeling that you have lost control over your life and that is making you anxious.
You have to realize that things won’t always go your way and that sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and see what happens.
Life will keep on moving even if it’s not moving your way.
You like to keep a low profile. Even though you are very creative, you like to keep your creativity to yourself.
You value your privacy more than anything else, so any public appearance makes you uncomfortable and exposed.
This is what makes you feel nervous and anxious. You have to bite the bullet and just try to face these things that make you feel stressed out.
