Anxiety is a normal and healthy reaction in most cases, and it is triggered when a person must face some sort of threat or danger. Anxiety becomes a disorder when the person feels fear and excessive worry, either when facing their relationships with family, friends, or peers, or regarding their performance at school or work, which ends up affecting their day‑to‑day wellbeing and diminishing their freedom and autonomy.
