1. KEEP CALM AND AVOID SELFISH PEOPLE
2. You learn about anger in the family you grow up in; you watch and listen to the adults around you who model for you how and when to express it. And you learn that it can be respected, that it can be avoided, or that it can be abusive.
3. These thinking patterns become so habitual, that they affect our emotional states and makes the health anxiety sufferer live in avoidance of certain situations, places, people.

They are scared to put themselves out there in case the symptom gets worse, in case they can’t handle it or people won’t understand what they are going through.
