Anxiety is a state of uneasiness or tension caused by apprehension of possible future misfortune, danger, etc.; worry. Anxiety can come upon you when you are worried or uneasy or very eager or in a hurry to answer a question . You become nervous
and jittery. The problem is that you lose control. You begin to make
unpardonable and unnecessary mistakes—even in a subject area you
know well. You will be perplexed at the sort of errors you make just
because of anxiety.
To successfully deal with anxiety, “be careful for nothing; but
in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your
request be made known unto God and the peace of God, which passeth
all understanding , shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ
Jesus” (Philippians 4: 6–7 KJV).
