Our understanding of mental health issues is very limited, possibly because of the lack of awareness about it and also because of the stigma attached to the topic. Anxiety, in particular, is often dealt with in the most reckless manner. Many people fail to relate to the person suffering from anxiety because of a lot of reason. One, because they have not experienced the feeling themselves. Two, because they feel that the person should “man up” and deal with it. And, three, because the pace of life has become so fast that there is no time left for being human.
