A Psychologist Explains Why You Get MORE Anxious After Something Great Happens To You

Anxiety gang, are you here with me?!

One question that people with anxiety get a lot is, “Well, what are you so nervous about?” It’s a question that doesn’t have a logical answer, and if there’s any proof of that, it’s the fact that you often get MORE anxious after something good happens, not less. Fun times.

Clinical psychologist Carla Marie Manly explained to HuffPost why this often happens to people with anxiety:

“Anxiety can be a bit tricky, as it’s a primitive response that’s hard-wired into the brain. The brain’s fear circuit works very quickly, and it doesn’t always pause to differentiate between good anxiety and bad.”
