What Causes Excessive Anxiety?

The explanations about this type of worry are very varied. One thing is certain - with this type of worry there is invariably a move from simple worry to definite anxiety. It has been suggested that this can be our personality type but also may have some origins in earlier periods of our lives. Just occasionally, the worry can emerge for the first time when we have a variety of other stressors. Some suggest that a sensitivity to imagined criticism may be to blame.
