Good news for anxious people awaiting a response: it’s almost definitely not you
I promise you, it’s probably not anything you’ve done
We’ve all been there. Someone doesn’t reply to a work email. A friend leaves us on read. We get a funny look from a colleague in the kitchen. And the catastrophizing begins: you’re definitely being fired. That friend hates you. Everyone at work is gossiping about you. No matter how much you try to push the worrying down: it’s there, and you’re panicking.
