Your inner turmoil isn’t *that* unique, sorry.

A while ago, we asked
therapists about the most common worries and
insecurities their patients deal with, and there were so
many that I wanted to see just how universal they were, so I
whipped up this poll.

I also nabbed a few from the comments section, where people
started sharing their own insecurities in solidarity.

1. Do you overthink
the tiniest shit, even when you know it’s irrational?

2. Do you still not
feel like an actual adult?

Yeah, I feel like I’m totally faking it

Sometimes I feel a little out of my depth

Nah, I’ve mostly got this

I’m actually *not* an adult

Tbh, I feel slightly less alone after seeing the
results of this poll?

If you want to ~dive
deeper~ into this stuff, check out the original post on
ridiculously common
insecurities pretty much everyone has.

By the way, just because these issues are common
doesn’t mean you should have to live with them — plenty of
people can and do get help and work through these feelings,
and there’s no shame in that. Therapy is a good place
to start.
