Hello and welcome new and returning viewers
Thank you all for your support and love
Psych2Go would like to express our gratitude to you, the superstars who helped us thrive
Allowing us to provide you with ongoing material
Now we have a question for you.
Have you ever felt your heart flutter?
What about the thoughts of a certain someone increasing your body temperature?
what we’re saying is, have you ever liked someone?
Having a crush is complicated enough
adding anxiety to the mix
However, it’s a recipe for confusion, panic, and maybe a little sweat.
但其中的困惑 惶恐 甚至紧张出汗 并非无解
As someone who lives with generalized anxiety disorder,
I can confirm that life only gets more chaotic when I’ve got my eye on someone
我可以证明 一旦开始关注别人 生活只会愈加混乱
Needless to say it gets confusing for everyone involved.
And in an attempt to get things slightly clearer,
Here are seven signs that someone with anxiety likes you
from my own personal experience.
One, if I like you,
I care about what you think and how you feel about me
The last thing I want is one-sided affection
So I’ll want to make sure everything is as it seems
Just like most people, I’ve been hurt in the past.
But my anxious brain is convinced it will happen repeatedly.
Even little misunderstandings can get blown out of proportion, if I have enough time to think.
如果时间足够 即使是小误解 也会被我放大
So reassurance can save lots of stress if I feel comfortable enough to ask for it.
Two – I paid very close attention
Anxiety keeps me alert
So I tend to be very detail-oriented in every area of my life
Especially when I care about something
I’m more than willing to spend time and energy diving as deep as possible into the subject
The same goes for people.
If I’m interested, I’ll listen closely to whatever you have to say,
and I’ll make a point to remember the things you like and believe in
I sometimes worry that I pay too much attention or that I come across as desperate
because I made such an effort.
But I know that my attention to detail is simply part of my love language
and how I communicate to those I care about.
Three, my words don’t come out quite right.
When I’m around someone I’d like , I can turn into a stereotypical nervous wreck.
I fidget, I sweat and I can’t keep words in the right order when I speak.
坐立不安 手心出汗 说话也语无伦次
I know what I’m trying to say,
but even I get confused when listening to myself talk sometimes.
It never happens the same way either
Sometimes I pronounce a word wrong
But other times an entire sentence is mixed up
this tends to happen to me in many social situations
But never quite as noticeably as when I’m talking to someone I’m interested in.
Four – I’ll tell you when I’m anxious
Well, I’m open about my mental health.
I’m still very private about it, especially in the moment.
I’m much more likely to excuse myself and ride the anxiety rollercoaster alone.
Unless I truly want you in the picture.
Please don’t take it personally if it takes weeks or even months to open up
Anxiety leaves me in a vulnerable state, which doesn’t always go over well.
it’s easier to be alone, but I’m willing to work to let someone in,
if they show me they’re willing to work too.
Five, sweaty hands
Modern media can romanticize mental illness until the end of time
But the truth is that anxiety is not pretty.
My face burns red and I sweat like crazy when I’m stuck in fight-or-flight mode
一旦陷入战逃模式 我会脸部通红 汗如雨下
And honestly, it’s embarrassing
I can’t focus on anything else
and I fear that others can notice it too
I get preoccupied with whether my flushing is giving away my anxious state,
but I usually work myself up over nothing
Everyone gets nervous sometimes. More often than not, I’m not the only one with sweaty hand.
Six – I’ll push myself out of my comfort zone
It isn’t often that I cancel plans or take on something new
Routine soothes my anxiety more than any pill or conversation
But I’d rather spend time getting to know someone I like.
This can even turn anxiety into curiosity in a good way.
Trying new things can be exhausting
But I’m much more willing to go out of my comfort zone
If someone I like will come with me.
A little excitement can be incredibly motivating
and seven – I overthink, therefore I am.
While this may not be a quality that others will notice.
In fact, I hope they don’t notice
My mind is working constantly,
I lose sleep over everyday worries that cycle over and over in my brain
so you can imagine the kind of chaos that ensues
when I care about someone that may or may not be interested in me.
I ruminate over every single word I say,
every word you say,
every gesture you make,
every question you ask
It never ends
Do any of these signs feel familiar or relatable to you?
Or perhaps you suspect you’ve seen it or felt these signs from someone else
