Are personal space issues part of anxiety?

Community Member

I have always had personal space issues, even with my partner and daughter. I tend to get panicky if someone is in close or holds me and won't let go straight away....I don't go out of my way to touch people affectionately, unless I have had a few drinks. I worry about my daughter all the time and worry about who my partner talks to...insecurity at its best!

Personal space issues are usually an aspect of insecurity, and insecurity is one of many types of anxiety.
