This Quiz Will Reveal Whether You're As Fucked Up As You Think You Are

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

Posted on

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.

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.
