Anxiety can affect anyone faced with a difficult decision. According to a recent article, this is because anxiety makes you doubt yourself; it puts you in a state of low self-confidence.
People who are feeling unsure of themselves are more likely to depend on others for feedback, insight, and direction. If you feel overwhelmed by a situation, you’re more likely to ask someone else how to deal with it.
Asking for advice is good, but remember not to let shaken confidence lead you to neglect your instincts. Talk to a trusted loved one or close friend when you need to, and have faith in your ability to make good, informed decisions even in tough circumstances.
