Status Anxiety

December 21, 2013 § Leave a comment

We all worry about what others think of us. We all long to succeed and fear failure. We all suffer – to a greater or lesser degree, usually privately and with embarrassment – from status anxiety. […] This is an almost universal anxiety that rarely gets mentioned directly: an anxiety about what others think of us; about whether we’re judged a success or a failure, a winner or a loser.

~ The one and only Alain de Botton, probably the only modern philosopher I trust.
