Does your anxiety ever make you feel like a failure? Does it ever make you feel stupid? A reader’s comment on my post, Top 10 Anxiety-Friendly Jobs, really got me thinking about this issue. They indicated that anxiety at work had caused them to exhibit some of the common signs of low self-esteem, including difficulty holding down a job, and becoming easily confused and forgetful. Because I’ve struggled mightily with these same issues at work, it also got me thinking about other reasons why anxiety makes you feel stupid and like a failure.
