High functioning anxiety is when you’re able to do things like a normal person except they express things a tad bit differently. Like being anal about things, insomniac, you’re sick about things, being busy can’t always be that much fun, you can’t reveal yourself exactly, NO doesn’t always exist, and everything seems like it’s all a trick.
But, what if it can be fixed? You can put back together, don’t stigmatize them for their situation, choice or cause of being that way, and to be don’t be rude, unkind, brush-off, don’t say something like “perk up butter cup things will get better soon” cause it will most likely make things 10x worse, help them recognize what types of problems that could factor into their situation, work on the problems as a team, don’t shove them into back the darkness that they were once in, and help them remind them of how they was once was and teach them how to recreate those feelings and memories of all the good times.
Yes, it’s a challenge to overcome. But how far are you willing to fix the problem or if you are going to be that somebody to fix that person.
