16 Things You Should NEVER Say to Someone With Anxiety

2. “Just get over it.”

someone with anxiety


Yes, this is something people actually say to people having a panic attack or bout of anxiousness. And you know what? They think it actually helps. Would you tell someone with the flu to just “get over” vomiting repeatedly? No. You’d offer them something soothing to drink and tell them to get their rest. The problem with anxiety in comparison to the flu is that it doesn’t go away in a few days. It stays there for as long as it pleases. So saying this doesn’t make sense and is actually very irritating.
