Causes of Anxiety



What  are some of the causes of anxiety?

Well if we all knew that life might be much better… maybe as good as a bed of roses (without the thorns)!  This might enable us to nip it in the bud (excuse the pun) before it causes the damage it is capable of.

Damage? Yes… like interfering and preventing a person from leading a fulfilling life. There are many different theories behind the causes of anxiety but because each of us differs it makes it very difficult to pinpoint the specific reasons why anxiety arises. Losing control of your thoughts and actions to an extent that no matter what you say or do, your life seems to be out of your jurisdiction is not an easy thing to cope with.

What are some other causes of anxiety?

Additionally, if anxiety runs in the family then there is an increased risk or possibility that history may repeat itself with you being the main actor.

There is also some evidence that for some people, anxiety can be brought on by minor stressors, frustration and irritations.

The foregoing causes of anxiety are just a few of the potential hundreds of reasons why this difficult disorder afflicts so many people.
