At some point in our lives, we all experience anxiety. For most of us, it is more like an emotional alarm and is just a part of natural human behaviour. We feel anxious in moments which are important to us.
But Anxiety becomes a problem when due to heightened sensitivity, it impairs our everyday lives. This situation is known as Anxiety disorder and it can ruin your life if left untreated. Due to this problem, Anxiety is seen in a very negative light by common people. But do you know that anxiety also comes with a few sets of boons! The powers which you can not possess otherwise.
Here are 4 powers possessed by people suffering from Anxiety Disorder.
1. Life-Saving Instinct
Anxiety has been a part of human life since earliest times of evolution. It developed as a survival instinct to save lives from animals and other dangers. With the removal of the threat of being hunted, the survival instinct was also gone. But anxiety was left in its wake.
Studies show that the people with Anxiety disorder are more capable of detecting and responding to dangers. Their sixth sense allows them to detect dangers in mere 200 seconds, thus giving them a unique ability to save lives.
2. Increases IQ
Researchers from SUNY Institute, New York proved that the people with anxiety disorder have considerably above average IQ. Their brain is constantly processing information, something that can not be done without higher IQ.
3. Increased Empathy
Due to their heightened sense of awareness, they are able to read problems of other people. They are also very concerned about how others feel around them. But this empathy comes at the cost of social malleability.
4. Sensing other People’s energy
Unlike other 3 powers this is not scientifically proven, but is clear that people with the anxiety disorder are able to feel the energies of people around them. They are comfortable around people with positive energy while they hide back in their shells when around people with negative energy.
We need to lift the taboo that we, as a society, have placed on Anxiety disorder. It is more of a ‘State of Mind’ and less of a problem.
