Whether it’s anxiety or your sense of self-esteem, it’s all important, and it’s important to understand what they mean. To help you navigate this tricky and (frankly) stressful time of your life, Young Post spoke to a professional counsellor for some solid advice. But, remember, each individual is different, and you should never feel like your feelings are invalid or “no big deal”. So if you can’t find what you need on these pages, make sure to reach out to someone you trust who can help.
