The difference between stress and anxiety.


Stress vs. Anxiety

Scene I: Anxiety

“I have too many e-mails.”

“I’m so unorganized.”

“I’m so bad at time management.”

“I can’t get anything right.”

“I said the dumbest thing at that meeting.”

“I’m such an annoying person.”

“I’m just a fake.”

“I’m letting everyone down.”

“I always let everyone down.”

“I’m such a mess.”

“I deserve nothing.”

“I’m worthless.”

Scene II: Stress

“I have too many emails.”

“This is stressful.”

Stress is real. Anxiety is different.

Show compassion, not judgement.
