8 ‘Rude’ Things People Do That Are Actually Caused By Anxiety
When we meet someone for the first time, we can judge him quickly. First impressions can leave a lasting impression, but even if we know someone we’ve known for a while, we usually like it when we make a judgment.
When we find that someone is rude, we label them “not high”, “funny” or simply “rude”.
Many people with anxiety have coping mechanisms and side effects that can be rude, but are actually caused by their anxiety disorders.
We wanted to share what some of these “rude” and “rude” gestures often do, but are completely misinterpreted. We may remember that we are less rational and more understanding.
1. We like to meet, go out, do projects and have fun. But at the last minute, we will find an excuse not to go or a hundred reasons not to do so. When we finally cancel, we feel relieved and terrible at the same time.
2. Sometimes we bite people, have a sudden or hard sound, or blow on something that looks small. We understand that it makes us rude and we do not intend to do it. Through our fear, we always feel excited by the fact that sometimes the smallest thing can push us.
3. We interrupt people during a conversation. Sometimes it’s just because we do not remember what we meant two seconds later. We see how much it irritates others, but we can not stop it and we feel bad afterwards.
4. Sometimes we do not look at people when they talk to us, or they look at our hands, our phone or something else than the other person. It’s not that we are rude. It’s not that we can not always look someone in the eye when we are worried.
5. In groups, we are often seen on our cell phones. We know it’s not polite. We do not like when other people do it. But if we have a bad day of fear, it’s an easy way to keep the mind moving and not turn it into an attack.
6. We tend to distance ourselves from people because we want to “focus on ourselves”. We do not want to waste someone’s time and energy when we are not in our ideal state, because it’s just not fun.
7. We may intentionally avoid someone we know in public. It sounds rude and it’s never like that because we do not want to see them or hear them do it. It’s insecurity about ourselves – the fear of saying something stupid or weird or they do not want to talk to us.
8. We can become very sarcastic and defensive when we are worried … Sometimes we really want to be alone and it’s our weak attempt to push people away so they can make room.
