What are the first causes of anxiety?

For every individual, anxiety is one of the natural emotions. We all get anxious about exam results, interview results, wedding, pregnancy, child’s future and so on. The beginning feeling in all these situations is worry or concern.

However, when this initial feeling gets beyond our control, it is called anxiety that begins to consume our day to day living. When you are beginning to get concerned about the outcome of a particular situation, sometimes, more miseries seem to pile up at your home or office.

 It reaches a stage where you come to a conclusion that you can’t take all of them anymore. Consider the case of me as a teacher. On a daily basis, I deal with boisterous teen students at my class and added to this never ending chaos.

I face my husband who complains about my unruly working hours. Suddenly, the memory of bills to pay for which I have no money adds to my stress. Naturally, the idea of facing another day like this would drive me to anxiety.

 The causes for anxiety for others engaged in various other professions would be almost similar. For most of us, the work place is where our anxiety originates to pressures and expectations.

  Would envying cause anxiety? In addition, when we start comparing our lives with others who seem to be better off than us would also lead to anxiety. Yes, envy is one of the first causes for anxiety.

 Here is another peculiar cause for anxiety. I personally know of persons who are politically attached to a particular party or a candidate whose activities and party status seem to affect their own future. Sometimes, they are more prone to be affected with anxiety than the politicians.

 I welcome you to give your feedback and opinion on causes for anxiety.
