Sweaty palms, shortness of breath, butterflies in your stomach. Feeling tense, like you can't relax, and that you have no control over the situation. These are very common signs of anxiety. Anxiety is a natural reaction to our mind's perceived fear of danger. When it starts to become a daily issue in your life where you start to avoid situations or people or you start to lose your sleep, that is when outside help like therapy is important.
