Often referred to as OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a type of psychological disorder which is identified through a person having obsessive thoughts with resulting compulsive behaviors. These obsessive thoughts are often driven by anxiety, with the following actions attempting to reduce the anxiety.
Having a low self-esteem is generally described as having a poor self-image. Whether this be an opinion on the way the physical body is perceived, the ability one thinks they have in social situations or their intelligence, there is a negative opinion associated with the self-worth of those suffering.
It is defined as feeling like a fraud and being doubtful of your abilities. Someone with this syndrome might attribute something going well to “luck” and undeserving rather than recognizing the successes are a result of their ability and hard work. They may have an ongoing anxiety that someone is going to expose their true self.
PTSD is an acronym for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It may develop in some people who have faced or witnessed a scary, dangerous or shocking experience or event. The type of symptoms someone may be suffer include severe anxiety, flashbacks to the moment of the event, insomnia, and nightmares.
It’s a type of psychological condition that impacts the mood of an individual, leaving them with long periods of feeling low or down. Whilst most people within their lifetime will go through a few periods of feeling sad and depressed when life throws challenges at them, clinical depression goes much further than this.
Perfectionism is loosely defined as the requirement to be or appear to be perfect, even in situations where perfection is impossible to achieve. Perfectionists tend to believe only perfectly done things are worth being proud of. Focused solely on the output, they do not recognize their hard work and progress throughout.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Anxiety is a human emotion characterised by the feeling of unease, fear, panic or worry. It is the type of feeling you might encounter the moment before you’re about to begin an interview or awaiting results from an exam or medical tests. Whilst common to feel like this during times like that, others may struggle to control their worries for long periods of time.
Expatiated by the recent coronavirus pandemic, health anxiety is a type of psychological disorder which is defined by the individual suffering from a constant fear that they are in poor health.
Often with little, or no symptoms at all, the disorder is driven by irrational health fears. The causes of health anxiety is not the same from person to person
Before entering social situations, it is not uncommon to get slightly anxious with feelings of unease at the thought of meeting someone for the first time or entering a room of people. Commonly, these symptoms will be short-lived and associated with those particular events. For those suffering from social anxiety however, that will not be the case with these feelings will be more severe and worrisome for most
Burnout is a state of exhaustion: both physical and emotional. Whether onset by stress inflicted from your job, school or your life, burnout is something which can happen to anyone at any point in their lives. With feelings of being lost within the midst of everything around them, burnout can lead to many unhealthy behaviors and decisions.
Lack of Confidence
Those suffering with a lack of confidence will therefore struggle with trusting their “performing” ability. This may impact just one specific area in life, or there might be a general lack of confidence in everything they do. This doubt is often not backed up with any evidence that you cannot do something, and it is a totally distorted view which is ingrained within the psyche.
Anger is a natural reaction; it is a natural response to a threat and is part of being human. Most people feel angry from time to time in their life as a result of feeling frustrated, attacked or perhaps unfairly treated. It is even seen as a useful emotion at times as it can help motivate us to change or help us stay safe as part of our fight and flight mechanism.
