Let’s check them out!
1. Anxiety time…
If anxiety has a schedule, why is it occupying your whole day? Put it back where it came from, and get busy living!
2. What if it does?
If anxiety were a person, you’d probably be annoyed with them. How many times do you have to argue with that worried voice in your head?!
3. This bottle sums up my life.
Yep, this bottle pretty much sums up every worrier’s life. You know that stress relief you’ve been saving up for a tough day? Sorry bud, time to find another solution!
4. You’re not quite sure either.
This is rather accurate for people with severe anxiety. But you know deep down inside that your friends really are your friends, especially when they assure you over and over that they love you. Real friends understand your worries.
5. Keep it cool.
Sometimes you just have to put on a smile and keep things cool, even when you are freaking out!
6. My anxiety hiding in the dark.
You always tell yourself that it’s going to be all right and that you need to stop overthinking, but the fears just won’t stop. Welcome to live as a person with anxiety!
7. Thinking in advance.
It is always like this for people with anxiety—they always assume the worst is going to happen. Be patient and compassionate with them!
8. Anxiety in all the wrong places.
This is a really funny meme, but it is also pretty much accurate. When people ask you what’s wrong and all you can think of are all the things that make you anxious, you know you are in the thick of it! Relax—this too will pass.
9. Waiting for someone be like…
This is why you shouldn’t make your friend wait if you know they are a worrier. Always be the early bird. People with anxiety tend to overthink things. When something out of the ordinary happens, they feel like they are at fault and start questioning themselves.
10. Always hitting the “overthinking” button.
How true is this?! Anxious people worry a lot. That is what makes them overthink things and keeps them awake at night. Even if something small and irrelevant happens, they still tend to overthink it!
11. My brain vs. my mouth.
Can you relate? This is basically how it works for people with anxiety. You’ve been practicing for hours, maybe even days, and know exactly what you are supposed to say. But when the time comes, it feels as if all the practicing was for nothing.
12. Social anxiety hitting it hard.
Anxious people tend to be clingy with their friends, especially in crowded places or situations that involve social interactions.
13. My anxiety waiting for the right timing.
Imagine if anxiety were a person—this is what it would look like when they are about to attack.
14. Anyone wants tea?
Science tells us that tea helps calm your senses and relieve anxiety. Will it go away completely if you drink this much?
15. Literally what I feel when anxiety attacks.
Even the smallest of things can trigger an anxiety attack. From an outsider's point of view, it’s just a small inconvenience—but for a person suffering from anxiety, it’s a crisis!
16. Composure is different from ease.
It’s one thing to have composure, but another thing completely to be at ease. Composure means being uncomfortable and confident at the same time.
17. They are different!
People who haven’t experienced true anxiety may not realize that it’s completely different than being shy. You can be an extrovert and still have anxiety. You can also be shy and just not want to talk to new people, but that doesn’t make you anxious.
18. Your boss triggering your anxiety.
This may be true even for people without anxiety disorders. Chill out a little, boss!
19. I am the great pretender.
This applies not just to those with anxiety, but also to introverts. We feel you. There are simply times when you don’t want to interact.
20. What I want to say vs. what I said
Here’s another meme that applies to introverts as well as those with anxiety. But for people with anxiety, it is because they are afraid people will reject what they say if they ever get the chance to say it.
21. Way too real.
Do those demons inside of you ever stop talking? Believe your friends when they pay you compliments—they really do love you!
22. Where do I begin?
This is so true! It’s like you’re doing advanced calculus in your head just thinking about approaching someone. In the end, you know you’re just going to walk by and pretend that you didn’t see them. Or maybe you will wait for them to approach you.
23. When the past still haunts you…
In addition to overthinking things, people with anxiety tend to remember things they should have done in the past.
24. Just keeping it calm and classy.
Be like Spongebob. Keep it cool despite the rumbling inside. But don’t keep it bottled up inside forever. Ultimately, you need to find an outlet.
25. Tell me what’s wrong!
Does this sound familiar? You know there is something wrong, but you can’t really pinpoint what it is. You may be suffering from anxiety!
26. Do you struggle with anxiety? I don’t!
A funny statement, yet so true. For many of us, anxiety is a way of life!
27. Your lives are impressive.
When your friends are talking about life’s ups and downs, and you realize that you’ve never had ups…that’s a bit depressing.
28. Mom, do you even know me?
Introverts, unite! What’s worse than talking to someone you don’t know? If you are anxious or an introvert, not much!
29. Panic attacks activated.
Do you ever feel this way? You hear the drums rolling inside your head whenever someone wants to talk to you. Yup, that is anxiety knocking, my friend.
30. Don’t. Just don’t.
No matter how much you try to shoo it away, that anxiety is here to stay.
31. Are they gone?
A lot of us know how this feels. Your mom probably got tired of calling you, since you never came out to say hello. You do this even if the guests are your relatives, don’t you? That’s your anxiety at work!
32. Uncertain times…
This meme is right on the money. Your anxiety can often hinder your happiness. I mean, you know you did it right, but you are still unsure. Even when the boss says, “great job,” you still doubt him.
33. I’m OK… not.
Those with anxiety often keep it to themselves. This isn’t healthy! We all need a friend to lean on.

This is anxiety in a nutshell. Try to think about rainbows and teddy bears instead. Anything to distract yourself.
35. Here’s live footage of what’s in my mind.
This meme is the perfect portrayal of life with anxiety. Can you relate?
36. Thank you for listening.
There is nothing wrong with assuring someone they will be fine, but sometimes people with anxiety just need someone to vent to. Listen to them, don’t dismiss them.
37. It’s the past crippling in again.
As we said earlier, anxious people tend to relive the past, even at the most random of times.
38. Make it more tasteful.
Isn’t this a classic meme? It’s quite depressing to admit, but it is undeniably true.
39. Oh no, what did I just do?
Don’t blame yourself—you can’t get out of everything. Just prepare yourself for the worst.
40. Time to sabotage.
Your anxiety is an expert at sabotaging your day. Your job is to rise above it!
41. Don’t be needy!
If you ever experience this, put it out of your mind. We know it’s hard not to the inner voices inside your head, but try as much as you can to let all those feelings out.
42. They are having a feast.
People with anxiety often suffer from other mental health disorders. Even though we laugh about it sometimes, anxiety is serious!
43. What’s wrong?
You need to be careful if you have a friend who is suffering from a severe anxiety disorder. Your behavior and expressions may mean nothing to you, but they are likely overanalyzing everything you do.

Sometimes the only thing we can do is laugh at ourselves. But it would be nice if everyone else would be a bit more sensitive!
49. Hello, my demons.
You’re probably used to your anxiety by now, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need help. Mental health matters!
50. All of the above!
Everything you do seems really hard when you suffer from anxiety.
51. What is wrong with you, guys?!
Don’t doubt their loyalty so much. They probably were just too busy to add periods or emojis. It’s just your anxiety talking!
If you feel like your anxiety is getting out of hand, we highly suggest you consult a mental health expert to help you deal with it. Mental health is a serious issue and requires serious treatment.
