15 Movie Quotes about Anxiety
Worrying is like paying a debt you don't owe
Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, but for some people, it can become excessive. It can have a number of distressing effects on your health and well-being and can have a lasting impact on your life. Anxiety is highly treatable, but people may not want to talk about it and feel they can take care of the problem themselves. Your worries may not go away on their own, and they may worsen over time if you don't seek help from a health care provider. It's easier to treat if you get help early. If you feel anxious from time to time, you are not alone. Here are some movie quotes about anxiety.
From the movie: Persona
“All the anxiety we bear with us, all our thwarted dreams, the incomprehensible cruelty, our fear of extinction, the painful insight into our earthly condition, have slowly eroded our hope of an other-wordly salvation. The howl of our faith and doubt against the darkness and silence, is one of the most awful proofs of our abandonment and our terrified, unuttered knowledge.”
