Anxiety is introverted, and most of your focus and time is taken up by your own thoughts and feelings – with pinpoint precision!
It’s this focus that prevents you from being in touch with the world around you. Ignoring other people’s problems and friends in need of your help is common.
How can I take on somebody else’s problems when I’m struggling with my own?
I strongly recommend you try, because helping others is a great anxiety relief. The best place to start is to start listening.
Listening is loving, and loving is helping others.
